May 2018 – spring bursts forth at LLdV with some fantastic fishing to keep the anglers busy!
May – what a fantastic month! If only we had the month of May all year round to enjoy nature’s dramatic bursts of spring colour, following the long winter shutdown. Blossom, followed by the annual abundance of delicious cherries, have swamped the trees in the Orchard, and the irises have provided a fabulous pop of vibrant yellow around the margins in Willow lake. Simply beautiful! And fortunately the swift appearance of an unexpected cyclone sweeping through at the beginning of the month brought minimal chaos to the lakes…
The carp have been noticeably active and the anglers have enjoyed the longer warmer days and balmy evenings al fresco.
Wednesday nights are fast becoming legendary for the ‘BBQ experience’ – Mike & Claire certainly know how to host a bumper BBQ extravaganza!!!
Both lakes have fished very well this month – Orchard lake has provided literally hundreds of carp to 55lb and Willow lake has produced carp to 64lb – all good all round this season so far!
