Quality Carp showing in Feb, last Match at Wombwell, Saturday 26/2//011, winning weight 59lb, all Carp catch.


Wombwell Dam Fishery, is fishing really well for the time of year, a pleasure weight of 60lbs, was caught on the pellet Waggler.


Sundays Match was an all Silver affair, with 16lbs of roach and Rudd needed to win, with 14lbs of skimmers coming Second, well worth booking a club Match at the Venue this year.


Excellent winter fishing


One of the best fishing ponds in south yorks


Took my ten year old grandson for his second fishing trip. He had ten bream and five cracking carp including a ghostie.


Took our Ben for third visit only ten but had a great session. Nice people who own it. Give it a go.

Great pond carp floating on top on a lovely warm summers day but only problem is can't use floating baits to catch them


Lovely venue spoilt by the fact that the barrier is opened when they feel like it and despite phoning in advance to check no match fishing twice I have arrived to find there was 'a bit of a knock about' ie a match on arrival. It's not on when people travel distance to get there. It's their fishery but at least tell people when they ring in advance. Will give it a miss now. Shame.



Could anyone give me any tips on this pond been looking to fish it this year when weather picks up but wasnt sure how to go about it


Pellet waggler is the way to do it! I got 37 carp all over 4lb
