** Linear Voted 2015 Stillwater of the Year* * [16/12/2015]

** Linear Voted 2015 Stillwater of the Year* *


From all of us at Linear Fisheries we’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for us in the 2015 Angling Times Awards. It's been an amazing year at the fishery, new faces joining the team, lake records falling all over the place and the complex's first 50lb fish grazing the banks. We've got a few surprises up our sleeves for the coming year and if the fishing is anything like this year, 2016 should be another cracker! There’s a lot of hard work that’s gets put in to keeping the complex up to the standards that you all have come to expect, so for this to be recognised is brilliant - It really does mean a lot to win this award, thank you!

36lb Brasenose-One Mirror. [15/12/2015]

Stu Abbott visited the complex for the first time last weekend and was rewarded with a new PB 36lb 13oz mirror from Brasenose-One, the only fish of his session. Stu caught the big mirror using a cell wafter with a plastic corn topper, this was fished over a bed of hemp, corn, pellet, maggot and cell boilies. This is just one of a number of fish in the lake that has packed the weight on this year, the last photo we could find of this fish was back in January, a couple of ounces under thirty. We estimate that there could now be as many as 15-20 fish over the mid-thirty mark in the water, with about 8 of these very close or over the 40lb mark.

RIP - Peter Mohan. [14/12/2015]

It is with a sad heart that today I have to report the passing of Peter Mohan. For those that didn't have the pleasure of knowing him, Peter was a very influential figure in those early days of carp fishing. He was a founder of the British Carp Study Group and the Carp Anglers Association, along with being the author of many books, including the brilliant carp book ‘Cypry the Carp’ and his most recent publication ‘A Life for Carp’.


A little known fact is that he also had an honorary position as Linear Fisheries President, a title which he loved! He will be greatly missed by all of us involved with the Oxfordshire Complex and Elstow, where he was more involved. I have to admit, that along with the sadness I have in writing this, I am also very conscious of my spelling and grammar. For many years, Peter was the main man behind proofreading our annual brochure and many a time he had me across the coals, for what he described as primary school like mistakes, and in his own words would ask, “did you actually go to school”. I’m sure he will be looking down now, red marker pen in hand!


The world of fishing, particularly Carp Fishing, is a lesser place today. Rest in peace Peter, you will be missed by many, especially those of us at Linear.


Chris Blunt
Linear General Manager.
