FINCH FARM FISH­ERY, MAIDEN­HEAD, BERKS

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

Bream from the free-to-fish Thames at Kingston. THERE are four crack­ing lakes at Pud­dle­dock Farm, but it’s the Snake Lake that’s been mak­ing the news re­cently – and it’s all thanks to for­mer foot­baller, Jimmy Bullard.

The ex-Wi­gan, Ful­ham and Hull mid­fielder hit the head­lines when he scored three con­sec­u­tive match wins on the 100-peg match pool.

The lake it­self is 14m wide and around 1.5m deep in the cen­tre – mak­ing it a per­fect venue for pole and feeder work tar­get­ing skim­mers and carp.

Fish­ing up in the water and across with pel­let on peg 54, Jimmy man­aged to catch steadily in a re­cent competition be­fore com­ing short in the last few hours to pick off a few This fish­ery is in fine form at more carp. By fish­ing ex­actly the same you can achieve 100lb eas­ily, al­though by switch­ing to a track line with mag­gots and chopped worm over mi­cros you can find your­self with a lot more skim­mers, tench, chub and roach.

Al­ter­na­tively, if you’re into your spec­i­men carp fish­ing, Wood Lake is for you. present with some big bream and plenty of good carp show­ing. Corn over pel­lets in the mar­gins is well worth try­ing on the Ana­conda Stream for nets of bream to 5lb and carp to 11lb. Con­tact: 07790 525642 Post­code: SL6 3ST
