    What a lovely little water this is. We had a look the other week and plan to fish it very soon. It looks so fishy and Natural looking. No idea how big the fish are but will try corn, meat and pellet.Wpellet.Would appreciate some info on what elastic,line,and hooklenghs to use. Was thinking of fishing at about 7 meters and where possible in the margins

    • Alright mate I fished this pond for years under another club. It is crazy deep I’ve never got near the bottom. I wouldn’t really say it’s a corn/meat water. It’s more worm/maggot/caster bread water with plenty of fish from roach perch Rudd chub carp. There might be tench but I wouldn’t know because its impossible to get those depths while float fishing. It’s important to take mosquito spray otherwise you are getting attacked. My best results are in the corners of the pond by the big lilly pads, use tiny hooks. Public foot paths so a lot of people stepping over your gear ect

    • Is it a day ticket

    It fished really well in June/July last year, but then fell off a cliff for me. I had lots of crucian and small common, red maggot seemed to work well. It had about 10 large carp always on the surface in June/July, but they seemed to disappear too when the fishing dropped off.
