Weeks of effort pay off for Paul at Brick Kiln Pond

Paul Frost wrote: I’m a new member who passes the Brick Kiln Pond as I travel to and from work. I often stop off for a quick scan of the pond to see what’s about and sometimes fish on the way home for a couple of hours.  I usually see a couple of unusual pale colour long slender fish cruising on the surface and finally managed to land one on the 6th June.  I didn’t really recognise the species but Brian at the Halstead tackle shop identifies it as an Albino Grass Carp.  It weighed in at a healthy 13.5lb and certainly put a smile on my face after spending weeks trying to tempt it.

Brian Webber’s mixed bag

This was my second place concessionary match bag from Slough House Farm beaten by an excellent 21lb carp by Jack Morley.

Brian’s bag – just pipped to top spot by a carp.

Angry makes Dan happy

Went down Howells for an hour after work and managed to catch ‘mr angry’ at a very fat/big weight of 27lb


Nice one Daniel – proof that short sessions can return big dividends.

Carp in the fog

Howells is fishing well as spring starts to arrive, I had 2 fish last night and lost one.  Both fish where commons one 24lb and the other was 23lb.

Little Park boosted by small Commons from Howells

We had a good day over Howells, the figures are a total of 462lb of small Commons moved to Little Park.  49 Commons totalling 442lb went into Little Parks main lake mostly averaging 10lb, some slightly smaller, and 20lb of small Commons went into the top pond.


Four of the 49 Commons moved from Howells to Little Park main lake.

Howells closed on Sunday 13th March

Howells will be closed to members on Sunday 13th March so that a number of the small Commons up to 10lb in weight that have bred in this lake can be moved to Little Park.  There will also be some disruption at Little Park throughout the day when the fish are introduced into their new home.  This date coincides with the Carpin On show at Five Lakes so hopefully disruption to our members fishing time has been minimised.


Howells lake – removing the smaller carp hopefully means that the big ones will get even bigger.
