FAS plan to enhance this 1.8 acre water in the coming years to try to restore the fishery to somewhere near what it was in its heyday, when big Tench and quality Crucians were present.

This beautiful pool now contains plenty of Tench between 1-3lb and up to 9lb 4oz, Roach to 1lb 8oz and Crucian Carp to 11lb +, plus Rudd, Perch and a few Bream.

The existing stock was added to in early 2013 with Tench, Crucians & Roach, more of which will be added in early 2014.

Tackle and Tactics

A lovely fishery where stealth and cunning may enable you to still find a specimen Crucian or catch some Tench.
