I fished here for the first time on Saturday and had about 150lb of carp in 8 hours 26 in total. According to some of the lads on there it wasn't fishing to well due to the recent cold weather but I wasn't complaining. Very enjoyable day and will definitely be back. Although a little pricey at £8.50 for a day ticket I felt it was money well spent. The fish I caught averaged about 6lb the biggest being 11 but I believe there are carp up to 26lb in there. Well worth the hour drive and I would definitely reccomend.


Love this place, one a chuck!



Corn or bread fished tight in the margins over micro pellets bought from their shop worked a treat for me. I'm sure floating bread would work well also as I threw some in as I was packing up and there were at least 10 carp fighting for it.


Don't get on the wrong side of the owner as he is a miserable prick


A rod, landing net, 10 loaves of bread an 75 fish all of the top. Easiest fishery ever
