  • With 90 pegs, spaced 11m apart, the depth ranges from 3ft - 21ft.

Best local tactics :


  • Light waggler with maggot fished on the drop for small roach perch & skimmers, is quite successful with regular amounts of loose feed.

  • Pole fishing behind the weed beds works well for the smaller fish but beware of larger fish cruising the margins.

  • Maggot feeder or open end feeder with plain brown crumb with maggot/caster/worm or corn fished well out finds the better bream/roach/perch and the occasional carp.

  • For the carp angler, fishmeal or fruit flavoured boilies fished on normal tactics both close in and far out will sot out the specimens.

  • Bread is worth a try, but beware of the ducks!
