Short fish­ing fix at Lodge

Anglers Mail - - New Gear -

Amost of you will know, I tend to pre­fer nat­u­ral venues and tra­di­tional species, but ev­ery once in a while I do en­joy a bit of carp fish­ing on com­mer­cials.

The other day a win­dow of op­por­tu­nity arose for a short ses­sion, but with no bait and no time to get to the tackle shop, I headed off to Lodge Farm, near Bawtry (tel: 07815 030694, sat nav: DN10 6AX), where I knew I could buy some pel­lets and that there would be pegs avail­able on new plea­sure-only lakes, Sand­piper and This­tle.

I had a lovely two and a half hours catch­ing count­less pris­tine lit­tle mir­rors and com­mons on pur­pose-built This­tle Lake, and used about £1 worth of bait. Great fish­ing and well worth a visit.
