Peg-by-peg guide to Red­bridge Lakes and hot swims to fish this week

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

AFEEDER’S cast from the M11, Red­bridge Lakes is a tran­quil fish­ery with more fa­cil­i­ties than you can shake a stick at.

Rip­ping up the no­tion of the ‘hole in the ground’ fish­ery, boss Gor­don Bul­lock and his team have de­vel­oped two wildlife­friendly lakes to give vis­i­tors a true taste of the great out­doors.

Carp make up only around three per cent of the over­all

stock­ing, the rest be­ing made up of skim­mers, tench, cru­cians, ide, roach and perch.

The fish­ing is easy, too, with the begin­ner guar­an­teed bites on float­fished mag­got un­der the rod-tip. Ev­ery swim has an is­land to cast to and in­ter­est­ing ‘arms’ that pro­trude 11m or so out on ei­ther side of the peg.

These not only of­fer an­other fea­ture to fish to, but also en­sure a bit of pri­vacy.
