Another year closes and we are now into our 17th year of owning and building our business and still absolutely loving it!
The fishing has been up and down and the weather has been, well, just weird.
Loads of big carp have been caught over the year and we’ve had some amazing weight gains from many of the carp in the lake. There’s been P.B’s galore once again and good times making lifelong memories for all our anglers.
Just over three years ago our youngest son, Caleb, started working and managing the lake and he’s absolutely thriving in this role. He won’t thank me for saying this because he’s not one for recognition but I am such a proud dad and a better person because of him.
The cherry on the cake for myself and Sarah this year is that we have just secured planning permission for Caleb’s home to become a ‘permanent’ residence, which is a massive weight off our minds as Caleb’s Lodge was originally only granted a ‘temporary status’ as a dwelling house. This means that the business and Caleb now have a permanent residence onsite should I feel the need to retire and if he chooses to he can build a new house or extend his current house, superb!!!!
To the lucky few who managed to book on for our New Year special, see you all in just over a week.

So, a great end to another superb year and it is YOU, our anglers, who make owning and running our lake a privilege thank you each and everyone.
Just before I go, here’s a pic of the big man himself, doing what Santa loves to do, a bit of ‘Hippo’ hunting on ‘The Mead’… He has the lake exclusive for a few nights, recharging his batteries before he has to go and deliver everyone’s presents… Merry Christmas one and all and we look forward to seeing everyone next season…From The Olivemead Team🎣🎣
