The Draper Party were here with us at Glehias last week and and had a bumper week of fishing, we were fortunate enough to be given their complete catch report.
We love it when we get a complete record of a good week’s catches from our anglers. Apart from it being a precise record of your fishing holiday, it gives us an accurate insight into how our fish are doing, how much weight was dropped during spawning, what baits are working best at what time of year and where the fish are coming from, all valuable information I use to pass on to future anglers.
Barry was fishing The Reeds in the shallows, Tony fished the shallow to mid-depths on the Gorse Bank and Kev fished the deep end of the Gorse Bank, the BBQ Corner and the Outlet Sluice hoping to find one of the bigger Catfish.

Total Number of Fish Landed 39
Total Weight 896lb 4oz
7 New Personal Bests!!!
We estimate a total of around 54 runs were had, most of the lost fish were at night and this is normal when fishing the reeds as the Carp tend to bolt away from you in the dark, this is of no concern as the barbless hooks soon come out.
This week also saw Tony Draper land one of the big Cat’s in the shallows, this has never happened in the last six years of anglers coming here as they have a tendency to run for the snaggy reeds and snap you off, so apart from being a cracking Pb fish, it’s an achievement in itself just getting a 50+ Cat on the bank in that end of the lake!
Well done lads, what a week’s fishing!
