    Orchard Lakes paradise on earth for me

    Post by Eddie on Fri Sep 12 2014, 20:41


    "Situated within 56 acres of farmland in the New Forest national park, our well established lakes have grown from strength to strength throughout the years to become one of the most prolific fisheries in the south.

    Orchard Lakes has something for everyone as the lakes are stocked with 12 different species of fish over 5 lakes. We offer everything from match fishing, with bags of fish weighing in at over 300lb, to species hunting with large carp, bream and tench to be caught. Please feel free to explore our website and don't hesitate to contact us!"

    I only took up fishing around five years ago. I had chucked a line out as a kid, but when I say I took it up, I mean seriously. I played golf for around fifty years, then my hands went south with Dupuytren's contracture, no more golf. I had also played drums since a kid, goodbye drumming. So I took up fishing, there is nothing I like more than being outside on a nice day, and fishing gives me an excuse to be out there.

    If you are holidaying in the New Forest and into fishing, I highly recommend this place. Very good facilities, great fishing, good grub, a well stocked tackle shop and most importantly, highly knowledgeable and very friendly staff. If you are a kid or over 60 years of age £7.00 per day, a good day out and great value.

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    And not far away is Ferndene farm shop - one of the best. They do lovely pork and lamb chops and really good free range eggs. Never buy my eggs anywhere else. We often take the granddaughters there to visit the "happy chickens"! Live not far away in Highcliffe. Highcliffe/Christchurch born and bred.

    Ferndene Farm Shop absolutely fantastic ...if we are in the area it's always worth a visit.

    One member of our family loves their sausages. Good home grown or should I say Farm grown.

    It's a lovely part of the world  sunny

    All the best Jan
