Totham Pit stocking policy

A few members have asked now that we have a new ten year lease on Totham Pit what our stocking policy is.  Based on previous experience we are proceeding cautiously and with this in mind we have moved two dozen carp from Bog Grove to Totham Pit with the owners consent to monitor how they fare next spring.  If all goes well we have purchased thirty carp averaging low doubles to stock into Totham Pit next autumn.  These are a good strain of fish that have grown to 25lb+ in some of our other waters so hopefully they will do likewise in Totham Pit.

New Totham Pit and Bog Grove licence secured

Good news, after two years of negotiations we have been successful in securing a new ten year licence for Totham Pit and Bog Grove.  This at last puts any rumours to bed regarding the future of these two lakes within our portfolio.  Maintenance works have continued on both of these fisheries during the last two years including the repair of paths, bridges, steps and swims plus numerous trimming up exercises.  This new ten year agreement allows us to extend this to include fish stocks and gate upgrades.
