A few notes about the Fishing

With good Fishing throughout the year, some excellent margin fishing, especially spring, summer and autumn, and night terrific angling. Where the “bivvy Brigade” often stop fishing in the very early hours saying "if we didn’t stop we wouldn’t get any sleep" often having landed about 70 Carp in a 24hr session up to 18lb and occasionally bigger.

General Coarse fishing is also good, we have some superb Roach fishing with Roach up to 2lb and plenty ½lb or bigger, good Bream about 3lb and over, Grass Carp in nearly every lake and plenty of lovely golden green Tench plus Koi and all species or varieties of Carp. The Carp go up to the mid 20’s with plenty around the 10lb mark and many bigger, with the average Carp around ½lb or 6lb.

Getting around the lakes is easy with grassy ramps for the non-ambulant and good sized wooden platforms aplenty. Almost any bait will catch, floating bread and chum mixer pellets being awesome after 4pm, and in the summer months fish tinned Beef Tongue - fantastic and with the usual bait’s of sweetcorn, luncheon meat, meat balls etc. good anytime at nearly every peg. The House Pool is nearly 10ft deep with a large Lilly pad, and plenty of reeds and bushes and such like around every lake.

The Main lake being around 3-4ft deep with shallow margins whereas the Novice’s pool is around 6-7ft deep with plenty of smaller fish, and some good sized Carp, to keep every one happy.

Overall a place definitely worth a visit and an excellent place to stay whether for a fishing holiday or a family holiday.

The center is located about 2 miles inland from some of the best sandy beaches and beautiful coast line in Wales. There are plenty of things to do and see just a short drive away. Many fisheries are usually isolated and once on-site you have a long travel to find other things to do. Here, you can fish in the morning, take the wife out during the day and return for some spectacular afternoon and evening fishing. What more do you want - a fantastic holiday, superb accommodation and awesome fishing, and no “black marks”?
