Too windy to do what I really wanted to do today which was floater fish for carp. Plenty of roach and perch on the float though and a lovely golden rudd.

Classic estate lake fishing. Very shallow in the margins, maximum depth we found was under the Oaks but didn't plumb the far side so may be deeper holes. Carp there in numbers, hooked 3 margin fishing, landed one beautiful mirror of 15lbs, lost the other 2 in 10inches of water as they bolted at close range. Numerous Roach, Rudd, Chub, Perch and Eels later in the day when the carp had retreated under the trees. Had hoped to surface fish but a strong wind blew directly up the lake and made presentation impossible.
60 percent of bank not accessible so when carp followed the wind made it impossible to reach them as I was only float fishing.
Another great venue, didn't see another soul all day, will be back to try again.
Thanks to WUF for making these great venues available.

Enjoyable if not tiring day on an exellent venue. Caught plenty of roach, rudd and perch on the float. The carp outwitted me though, I lost three decent size fish off the surface in the evening.
Many thanks again to the WUF for making such a lovely secluded lake like this available.

A lovely if not tiring day on a lovely venue. Plenty of Roach, Rudd, Chub and Perch caught on the float. The day was somewhat frustrating though by the fact that I couldn't get any Carp to the net.( I lost three )
Didnt see a soul all day, perfect many thanks again to the WUF.

Baited up an area along a reed bank with hemp and corn, landed 4 bream of around 4/5lbs on corn and half a dozen roach on the maggot. Hooked into something decent following these roach but the fight was all under the rod tip - eel. And another, and another, and another. Couldn't get a bite back on corn so switched to roving.

Casting worms at clouding and bubblers in the margin I banked 3 common carp to around 12lbs. Fought like nothing else on 4lb line and a 12ft Avon. Come evening I flicked a few floaters out and had a couple of nice fish appeared, with backs out of the water. Using a controller float I got right in amongst them and after 30 minutes of them nudging the float and bait, one opened it's mouth properly. A good 10 minute scrap put a pristine common carp in the net. It weighed exactly 22lbs. Amazing fight, amazing fish. Was happy there but they were still feeding so had a recast, had a take fairly quickly but lost the fish on a big lunge at range - seemed a good fish again, but they always do when they come off! Great venue, would recommend it to anyone.

Not pleasant fishing conditions due to blistering heat, no cloud and little shade. Shared the lake with a bull and herd of cows but they seemed friendly enough. Several carp seeing cruising on arrival but most had disappeared by mid-late morning. Plenty of roach and rudd caught on the float. In the early afternoon I managed to hook a decent carp on floated bread and promptly lost it. Packed up early due to heat.

Beautiful venue this - I think it's worth pointing out that there is rather large but Docile Bull in the field that contains the lake. I was a little wary about going in but the farmer turned up and assured me it was ok.
As for the fishing - loads of big carp cruising about on the surface. Had a nice common on floating crust at 9 pounds and hooked into a bigger fish that snapped my line. Couldn't get a bite on the float or the ledger on sweet corn, bread or luncheon meat.

Would be interested to know what the gentleman who caught the wide variety of fish was using bait and method wise. Will definitely return after I've reassessed my tactics!

Would be interested to correspond with others who have fished here - I can be contacted on andrewsharp31@googlemail.com

A lovely looking lake but afraid the same can't be said for the fishing. On my first cast hooked a smallish carp which came off. This was the only bite of the day for the two of us despite fishing for another 8hrs plus. Saw a few carp feeding in the side in the very shallow part of the lake but as soon as tried for them they disappeared. They only thing we seemed to be able to attract was the pair of swans on the lake.
