Le Moulin du Mee - Another milestone reached.

I am now in the UK for a 10 day family visit so will not be publishing pictures, etc until my return. Anyway, last night Jimmy informed me that some more good fish had been landed including a brace of 40's with a best of the day being a second 49lb mirror for 'Handles'.This morning Jimmy rang me with the news that we have just had our first 60lb mirror banked !!!! It was caught by 'Creepy' (Gavin) from Island and weighed in at 63lb 8oz. Strange how each week can differ so markedly from another and last week Mark struggled on Island swim whereas already this week Gavin has banked several good fish including a 53lb mirror and now a 63lb 8oz lake record mirror. The foibles of mother nature no doubt !!

We knew we were likely to see our first 60 mirror this season owing to the fact that during last winter netting we handled 5 or 6 of over that weight. Having said that the very strange summer following on from such a heavy spawning led us to think that perhaps we would have to wait until next spring to see one banked so this is a very special moment for not just Gaving but us also. Summer was a trying time with the hot, dry weather and although the fishing was challenging we can safely sasume that the carp were quietly getting on with feeding and regaining condition after spawning, the result of which is the amount of new 50's and big 40's that we have been seeing this back end. I honestly think that before the end of this season in a few weeks time we have good chance of seeing another of our mirrors breaking the 60lb barrier. Happy days !!

The Retreat - Craig and Caroline are fantastic at running this place

Paul and Linda, who returned for the second time this year reported another fantastic week at The Retreat and didn't want to go home again. Catching a total of 21 fish, including a 34lb mirror and a 30lb 8oz common, plus 6 more ranging from 25lb 10oz to 27lb 8oz . They have told everyone they know about the place and are planning to return again next year. Paul was gutted to lose a fish around the 40lb mark after a 15min fight, due to the splicing on one of his solar unleaded leaders coming undone. Bad Luck Paul and better luck next year!
