FINCH FARM FISHERY, MAIDENHEAD, BERKS
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
