GOOD FISHERIES DESERVE THE BEST POSSIBLE STOCKS
Find trusted suppliers right here!
IF YOU could own your own lake and fill it with the fish of your choice, what would go in it?
Big carp, golden crucians or muscular tench maybe? Whatever your choice, they all have to come from somewhere in the first place, and that means a visit to a fish supplier.
Dozens of UK breeders and fish farms channel their efforts into rearing carp, tench, bream, roach and barbel. They supply fish to clubs and privately-owned waters at affordable prices and in vast numbers to ensure excellent sport throughout the year.
With summer now at an end, we’re at a time when fishery owners will be starting to think about introducing some new arrivals. That may be a couple of thousand skimmers, a dozen or so decent carp or perhaps a good helping of roach. Whichever species you go for, you’ll be assured of sound advice and fit, healthy fish when visiting a recognised breeder.
From tiny fry to fish big enough to fend for themselves, care and attention has been lavished on potential stock. Disease-free and fit as a butcher’s dog, in many instances the heritage of the fish you’re buying can be traced way back to give you peace of mind.
However, in many instances breeders and suppliers won’t just sell you fish. They’ll also offer invaluable advice on maintaining your waters and getting the water quality and stocking levels correct. They’ll provide ideas on how to improve the overall environment to encourage new fish to grow to their true potential. In the long run this will mean better all-round sport and a bright long-term future for your water, rather than the reckless ‘dig a hole and fill it carp’ approach that sadly still happens from time to time.
Roach, bream and carp remain hugely popular but many ‘new’ species are beginning to make their mark. Ide have been a
revelation, as have barbel, which now thrive in waters that are carefully managed. The F1 hybrid is an out-and-out winner, incredibly popular with both match and pleasure anglers.
However you decided to stock your water, the message is simple... buy from a trusted supplier and you buy peace of mind and a bright future for both you and your new arrivals!
Fit fish make for finer fisheries – choose carefully.
