Set in stunning Bedfordshire countryside, Tingrith Fishery is an idyllic and relaxing angling environment. Bordering the Woburn Abbey Estate and consisting of three distinctly individual lakes, the fishery is one of just 14 Premier Fisheries sited throughout the UK.
Fringe Lake is a rare treat for anglers.
At approximately 1.5 acres and holding 20 swims, Fringe has an abundant array of species. It is the ideal beginners' pool and an extremely popular choice for clubs wanting a slightly different competitive experience.
When fishing on Fringe you're never sure what will feed next. Although it is famed for its Crucian Carp, there are also plenty of Common Carp, Brown Goldfish, Tench and Golden Orfe.
Species in Fringe:
Carp to 20lb
Crucian Carp to 3lb
Tench to 5lb
Roach to 2lb
Goldfish to 3lb
Perch to 4lb
Gudgen to 3 oz
Rudd to 1lb 8oz
When all else fails, the Golden Rudd and Roach fishing can be exhausting but spectacular.
The match record for Crucian Carp is an amazing 75 lb in just 3 hours!
At 6 acres and holding 40 swims, Orchid lake is perhaps the most challenging. But get it right and the sport can be spectacular!
Orchid holds a huge head of specimen fish - at least 60 double figure Carp, 10 x 20 pounder's and vast shoals of Tench (up to 11lb), double-figure Ghost Carp, Commons and fully Scaled Mirrors (up to 29lb), and giant 50lb+ Catfish that inhabit the depths.
Whereas all the lakes are available for Night Fishing, Orchid is always the favourite. There is plenty of comfortable bank space for your bivvy and cup of tea! The larger carp are being caught on boilies. Try the new Browning Range, from our shop, £6 for 1kg excellent value and proved to work here.

Cherry is home to a host of beautiful Ghost, Common and Mirror Carp (1lb-20lb), specimen Chub (up to 6lb), some huge Tench, and awesome still water Roach (up to 2.5lb).
The lake's depths average between 5ft and 7ft. The water has 25 well-spaced, comfortable wooden angling platforms. Cherry is very popular with clubs and pleasure anglers as this scenic water provides anglers with the opportunity to catch large bags of pristine carp using a variety of methods.

In the summer months, margin fishing can be spectacular. Using simple pole or long rod tactics over a bed of bait, carp can be caught in as little as 8 inches of water, next to the marginal reeds and trees.
In late autumn and winter, Chubb and pristine Roach can be caught in great numbers using worms, maggots or caster, with a maggot or groundbait feeder working particularly well for late season Carp.
