LAKE 1 – CARP

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

1.1 ACRES (8 SWIMS)

“This is our spec­i­men carp lake, which has eight swims, and a limit of four an­glers at any one time. In the lake are 150 doubles av­er­ag­ing 16lb, to a best of 30lb.

“Most peo­ple use a stan­dard carp ap­proach, leg­ering boilies and pel­lets – run­ning rigs are es­sen­tial, with a strong main­line of 12lb-15lb. Many peo­ple tar­get the is­land, but if you sit back from your swim the mar­gins are a mag­net for fish.

“There aren’t any set pegs as such – you can fish from wher­ever you like, which suits stalk­ing. My only pro­viso is that you mind the wildlife, as that comes first.

“There are also bream and perch, along with some very large roach which aren’t of­ten tar­geted.”
