Thank you all those checking the adds.

I am not a fisherman, as much because I don’t particularly enjoy it and I don’t like to think of the Fish being caught with a hook in its mouth. That by the way it is the biggest participation sport in this country. It is second to people coming on Holiday at Denbury for the Wildlife, so we are fortunate to be able to offer fishing Holidays at Denbury. Most of all those Fishing here seem to have been wildlife enthusiasts.

We made the Lake and Large Pond over ten years ago to encourage the Wildlife. For that it has been very successful. Stocking the Lakes with Fish was secondary. We only spent a very small amount of money on the stocking the Lakes, mostly very small Fish. There seemed to be very little point in having a Lake with no Fish. Fish were needed for the Kingfisher and Grebes that now visit our waters.

The intention when we put the Lake and Pond in was for them to be filled by the Stream that runs by the side of the Lake, but after they were dug out the holes filled within ten days from underground springs. That is a very large amount of water. The Lake is about an acre and the Pond about half the size. The Lakes being Spring fed rather than by the Stream allows the Fish to grow to their full potential, rather than by the size of the Lake. After ten years the Fish are very large. Last year a Carp of 22lb was fish from the Lake and one of a larger size was seen in the Pond.

I will tell you a little more about the Lakes and fishing and the experiences that a few of those fishing in the past two weeks have had tomorrow.
