Bag your first ‘twenty’ here

Big carp are a re­al­ity at this prime Es­sex hol­i­day hotspot

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

WANT to catch your first 20lb carp? Then come to Walde­graves Hol­i­day Park, on the beau­ti­ful and his­toric Mersea Is­land over­look­ing the sparkling Blackwater Es­tu­ary.

With four lakes to choose from, Walde­graves ap­peals to all types of an­gler, and of­fers great sport for plea­sure, match and spec­i­men fans alike. The lakes are stocked with qual­ity carp, bream, tench, roach, rudd, perch and gud­geon – all guar­an­teed to meet the ex­pec­ta­tions of the keen­est an­gler.

Each wa­ter has re­cently been im­proved, with new swims added so more peo­ple can en­joy the sport on of­fer. Man­aged by a per­ma­nent fish­ing war­den, fish and their en­vi­ron­ment are main­tained to the high­est stan­dard. The av­er­age weight of the fish has rock­eted in re­cent years and mul­ti­ple hits can be made all year round. Fa­cil­i­ties are suit­able for dis­abled an­glers, with park­ing close to the lakes.

Day tick­ets can be bought, but the real deal starts when you book a hol­i­day at cer­tain times of the year be­cause all res­i­dents are en­ti­tled to free fish­ing.

There’s no bet­ter time to take ad­van­tage of Walde­grave’s in­cred­i­ble fish­ing breaks dur­ing a stay in a lux­ury hol­i­day home.

The lakes are all beau­ti­fully main­tained.
