Arrival to a well kept and tidy establishment… Bailiff very welcoming and full of useful information, please use them they have the knowledge of a very tough lake.
Swims are of a great size and quality. No sign of damage or poor repair in swims all done to exceptionally high standard. Lake itself don’t be fooled, it may be small but it is a carp anglers rubix cube, loads of lake bed features silt, gravel bars, shelves and loads of visible surface features.
Was using big baits and big fish tactics so this four days was about size not quantity… bait establishment saw a 19lb golden common carp followed in quick succession of a 10lb 4oz common both great fish and well looked after.
Night before last saw a technical critically balanced rig change and a new baiting regime to the day before to bank a sublime 34lb 2oz mirror… the trip did what i intended quality over quantity… special mention to both owners who went above and beyond on kindness and hospitality and the same again for both bailiffs who where professional and as they should be well rehearsed on the waters.
This lake really is not to be looked at lightly be prepared for a small lake to get your angling head thinking. 10 out of 10 and i am already planning my return trip to this fantastic lake.
