General information and frequently asked questions.
This is not a runs water - if you want to catch 10 fish a day then we suggest you look elsewhere. At around 4 acres
this is a small water, but the fishing can be challenging at times, and you will need to use your angling skills and knowledge,
because when there is a lot of natural food around the carp are not dependant on bait ....
Anglers who can read the current situation and adopt a good baiting strategy tend to catch well, when the fish are
feeding well you will need to use a fair amount of bait and apply it regularly to realise the true potential of the water.
Keeping noise to the minimum and getting your lines out of the water when the carp are not feeding brings the best results.
