Fish in the lake include:

Common Carp, Mirror Carp, Grass Carp, Koi Carp, Crucian Carp,Bream
Roach, Rudd, Perch, Gudgeon, Sun Perch, Eel and Tench

The lake has 10 purposely made swims / pegs, sited around the lake for your comfort,
Each peg has a 2M x 1.5M level area for positioning for seating, tackle etc

After purchasing the lake in June 2010, it was full of weed and lily pads, it was not
fished for many years, so we cleared the majority of the weed and cut back the lily pads
in the summer of 2010. The lake also contained some large Carp along with
many other species, such as Bream, Roach, Rudd etc, these fish are still present.

So far we have found the best bait for the carp is a small handful of pellets and a
little corn thrown into the swim, followed by some Sweetcorn on the hook

So great fun and easy for a small competition, or fantastic for the kids, as
they can go home with some pictures and stories of the one they caught or the one
that got away!
