3&4 Pond

Carpworld - - TACKLE WORLD -

Af­ter the drain-down and re­work­ing 3&4 Pond was re­filled and H&DAA pur­chased the prop­erty from the own­ers. It was sub­se­quently stocked with carp from sev­eral dif­fer­ent sources, but a few very old carp ended up in the lake that were be­lieved to be from the same source as the Red­mire carp – orig­i­nally com­ing from Don­ald Leney’s Sur­rey Trout Farm. Here are cap­tures of a cou­ple of these beau­ti­ful Leney fish – one caught by the au­thor of the ar­ti­cle, Si­mon Crow, and the other by for­mer Carp-talk em­ployee, Ben Wales.
