The Grove is a recent addition to the Taswood portfolio, it used to be a trout lake which featured on one of John Wilson’s fishing programmes, but has since been re-sculptured and restocked with stacks of fast growing very hungry British carp ranging from 5lb to 28lb.
Secluded sheltered water with comfortable large swims, a ‘RUNS WATER’.
If you want a quick bend in your rod, have only time for a short session or are new to Carp fishing this is the water for you.
It’s around 5 Acres in size with all fishing on one side with lily pads, reeds and bays to cast to. The fish like loads of bait, all methods work well and they also like to take floating baits competing with the ducks.
One of the three specialist Carp lakes a beautiful mature tree and shrub lined lake. Flat grassed banked swims, plenty of room for bivvys, the lake being split by fantastic beds of water lilies. Each swim is individual with out of bounds areas on opposite banks to avoid any over casting etc. The lake is a silty bottom, about 7 Acres in size and runs from around 3 foot deep to around 6 foot deep in areas.
This is a fairly easy Carp water with a large head of mixed Carp including Ghosties and Grassies nearing the 40lb mark.
This season 2009, the lake has yielded over a dozen 35lb + fish, lots of lovely 30s and over a hundred reported 20s.
The current lake record is 38 lb 12 oz.
As well as carp, this lake also holds some very large bream and coarse fish and a large head of pike running well over 25 lbs.

A beautiful, picturesque water with overhanging willows. The lake is much deeper than Heron with depths from 5 to 15 feet and is about 5 Acres in size. The bottom is silty with lots of prominent gravel bars.
Single and double swims with various features to cast to in every swim. The far banks, lily pads and overhanging trees are the most popular areas to fish to.
The larger specimens reside in Broadwing with over 30 fish recorded over 35 lb this year, and countless thirties and twenties. We have recently stocked the lake with some fast growing British carp which will hopefully become the monsters of the future!
Broadwing has already yielded a forty pounder with a beautiful 41lb 3 oz ghost carp which is possibly the largest recorded carp of its kind in the country!

This lake is famous for its ‘flying bream’ which jump out of the water when hooked.
