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.
