The Fishery

The Canal was designed and opened by Neil in 1996 with the match angler in mind. A near complete circle of canal now that the extension has been added. The venue is a purpose built pole water 14 metres wide with over hanging trees and reeds on the far bank. It is 14mtrs between pegs. A shallow shelf on the far banking drops away to 6 feet of water down the central track, rising to 2 feet in the near margins. The canal has a footpath all the way round with wooden pegs for comfort. There are now 47 excellent disabled friendly pegs.

he fishing is excellent on the canal all year round. In winter caster, maggot and bread punch score well for consistent bites and weight going into the keep net. The main quarry to build a weight are the common and mirror carp, these can be taken from all over the canal on different baits. Fishing down the track with meat, sweetcorn, pellet and paste can bring lots of carp to the net. The tench and chub feed well and can soon mount up to a winning weight.

Other species keep the bites going as there are plenty of barbel, ghost carp, crucian carp, roach and perch, plus the many beautiful golden tench.

With the canal holding regular summer evening matches there are three match records for the canal. The 3 hour record stands at 181lb 4oz. The five hour record is a fabulous 172lb 12oz and the stunning six hour record stands at an amazing 235lb 11oz set by Bradley Parkes 1st Aug 2015.
