Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

At just a quar­ter of an acre, Parva is by far the small­est wa­ter on site but it’s the place to be for a real sur­prise. The roach sport is fan­tas­tic, with spec­i­mens to 3lb a gen­uine pos­si­bil­ity. Perch to 5lb are also ru­moured to live in here along with lots of chub to 3lb and carp to dou­ble fig­ures. For the roach, the pegs on the north bank are good and pole fish­ing into the mid­dle of the lake is the best tac­tic. Fish just off bot­tom in 8ft of wa­ter with dou­ble caster hook­baits to find the real spec­i­mens – although this tac­tic will also catch chub. On the east side of the lake you’ll find a cou­ple of drains which are where you can catch a big perch or carp. Both species love chopped worm and mag­gots and will al­ways ap­pear next to the drains at some point in the ses­sion when food is fre­quently in­tro­duced. If you want to fish for the perch, make sure you use strong hook­lengths to cope with a po­ten­tial carp.
