IF YOU want to bag up on carp or sil­ver­fish this week­end than look no fur­ther than Tyler’s Com­mon.

The Es­sex fish­ery has been fish­ing its socks off lately and match records have been tum­bling, with 500lb-plus nets be­ing recorded.

Horse­shoe and Ash Lakes are where all the ac­tion has been tak­ing place in the last cou­ple of weeks.

Lo­cal an­gler Jor­dan Bri­ant weighed 531lb on peg 33 in a re­cent open, beat­ing the pool’s for­mer match record by more than 130lb. Jor­dan caught mostly carp to 10lb by fish­ing meat down the edge, but an­glers have also fared well on the lake’s other 59 pegs by

fish­ing pel­lets or corn to the mar­gins of the is­lands which fea­ture on ev­ery sin­gle peg.

If carp aren’t your thing and you pre­fer a more nat­u­ral style of fish­ing than you can al­ways try Wag­tail Lake.

Al­though this is the fish­ery’s spec­i­men carp lake, with lumps to 40lb in it, the pool is also stuffed with big rudd and roach with in­di­vid­ual fish to 2lb on of­fer. These re­spond best to a lit­tle-and-of­ten loose­feed ap­proach us­ing float rigs.
