Carp and Roach Fishing is excellent with plenty of Roach ½lb and over. We have all species of Carp, Golden, Ghost, Mirror, Common, Linear, Leather, Grass, Old English (Black), Silver, Bronze, Yellow Koi and Koi Hybrids. We also have some good Bream Fishing with the bigger specimens coming from the House Pool and plenty of ½lb skimmers from the Main Lake.
While we don’t have the biggest Tench we do have some lovely golden/light green examples that give a really good fight for their size.
Best baits: Sweetcorn, pellet, worm and maggot and floating baits for the carp, Roach and occasional Bream.
Before we start, just remember that when you have caught a fish you are handling a live animal - so please treat it with care and consideration. If you can’t get a hook out quickly and easily, cut your line and let the fish go. He has a better chance of survival, when the hook will rust away, than you digging down his throat with a disgorger!
A little story of what one boy did:- When Bill (the owner) started fishing again after he became a Dad (just a few years back...), he caught a little Perch which was deeply hooked. He struggled to get the hook out as he was trying to be careful with it and not damage the fish as he struggled. Near to him was a young lad fishing
were first stocked in October 2009, then another small stocking in November 2011. They were little more than fingerlings, i.e. as big as your index finger. The picture left is of one of those “stockies” which have clearly grown on well. Although this fish was not weighed it was easily 15" long.
The latest picture shown the Chub held in a 2ft landing net! It was caught with a loaded method feeder and sweetcorn in the Main Lake. Quite a few Chub have been caught but this was the first time that the owner witnessed the capture and was on-hand to photograph it.
More chub were stocked in November 2011. These Chub are now roughly 2lb in size! More small Tench were stocked during late autumn 2011 along with More Chub and small Barbel to increase the numbers of decent Tench. While we don’t have the biggest Tench we do have some lovely golden/light green examples that give a really good account of themselves for their size.
Roll-on the next 18 months as Chub Fishing should become tremendous, and the Tench are growing on well too.
Bream: We went through a patch a year or two back when very few bream were seen, but the past 18 months or so they’ve come on well. Nice sized skimmers and the occasional larger fish in the Main Pool and plenty of “big ’uns” in the House Pool. A few skimmers in the Novices pool too.
Tench: Not the biggest Tench around, but good fish nevertheless. Many more smaller ones available in both House and Main Pools. I just wished more anglers would ask for their picture with one then we would many more for you to see.
Roach: Just check the size of this Roach, click on picture for an enlargement.
There are many good sized, quality Roach here. If this is your sort of fishing - welcome to Roach Heaven!
Barbel: After stocking some fingerlings in 2011, boy have they grown! A fair few pushing the 2½lb mark were caught during 2015. We& ’re expecting good things during 2018. Their power and speed is surprising and fabulous.
Carp: Here is a sample of our many Carp, not the biggest, nor do we claim to be a "big Fish" venue - we’re not. But we are a top-class general coarse fishery with good Carp.
Grass Carp: Our local expert Mark from Ffos y Ffin, his stealth and patience is unbelievable, he works at getting them feeding when it’s quiet in an evening; when their feeding confidently then he strikes. He has to be watched to believe how methodical and patient he is!
Koi: One of many Lady anglers that fish here. Fallon, a local lass is an excellent angler and here she shows off one of our many Koi, from mottled yellow in this example, through golden, Orange and multi-coloured ones too!
