THE GEDGES FISHERY, PADDOCK WOOD, KENT
Lake One of the prolific Gedges Fishery contains some chunky carp to well over 10lb, and they can still be tempted on floating or shallow-fished baits.
During a recent session, venue regular Robin Piper took common carp of 9lb 4oz and a 12lb 6oz fish (pictured right) on cherry-flavoured pellets fished over a bed of freebies, with no weight on the line whatsoever.
The fishery is run by Paddock Wood Angling & Conservation society so please ring beforehand for details. Contact: 01892 835161, www.pwaacs.org.uk Postcode: TN12 7EA
