Description

This is a former clay pit of about 4 acres, just outside Bovey Tracey on Bradley Road (g.r.827778). It is approached along the unmade road by the sharp bends as you approach Bovey Tracey from Chudleigh Knighton. The gate has an Association padlock. A popular match and carp venue holds roach to 2lbs, perch to 5lbs, tench, skimmers, carp to 28lbs and large trout.

Details

The pole and waggler work well for the match or pleasure angler with both top and bottom baits producing for the carp angler. Stuart Hocking is the bailiff who looks after this water.

This tranquil and secluded water supports a large amount of wildlife and makes an ideal retreat. A definite ‘must do’ for any Full member that has yet to give it a go.

A stunning pond full of silvers, also some big carp which are illusive. A deep pond in the countryside perfect for a quiet days fishing!

Set in the Devonshire country side this large lake contains mainly silverfish with the odd big carp going to over 30. The water goes down to 25+ feet in places so feeder or slider would be a good call. Surface baits for the carp in the summer. Dead red maggot with groundbait work well for the bream

Absolutely love fishing here, bivvying up in a sunny corner for the weekend and watching the huge carp cruise around is bliss. Good sport for the matchman as well :) 5*

Tips

Big roach in close, small bites

Don't go, no fish in here you might as well fish a wheelbarrow full of water!
