If the fishing carries on like this,at least you will be able to go in your garden and catch.I reckon with a bit of persuasion you could get a few of us around to help drink tea,eat toast and have a fish or two.

How much are Day Tickets chub

All of those will thrive in a pond of that size but not sure about the Chub as I've never heard of anyone keeping one before

Did you get a 'Section 30' ? Nope not even going to go down that line lol

How big were those chub for a fiver? There's an advert in AT for 6" - 8" chub at 1 each! Don't know if there's a minimum quantity though.

We used to keep small carp to 5lbs in water troughs and a small artesian well and also in a a small pond. The water supply to the pond and troughs was the same natural spring.

I guess the water in the artesian well was good quality too.

I got a Diamondback Sturgeon for my Dads pond from
a place called "Oakhanger Aquatics" which is just
outside Alsager in Cheshire. You could give em
a call.

You can buy Sturgeon from any good aquatics centre,it just depends on which particular form of fish you want.ie diamondback,chequer etc.

They used to sell small perch at my local aquarium centre. I don't know if they still do because it changed hands. Also it's in Hertfordshire. I'll find out anyway, but I don't reckon perch travel very well in the mail.

Chub, it is definitely illegal to take any fish from a water without the owner's permission. It is also a legal requirement to obtain a section 30 from the EA if you wish to move fish from one water to another, even if it's your garden pond. I know this looks a bit extreme, but the legislation was drawn up to reduce the chance of spreading diseases & is very comprehensive.
You could try emailing the EA to see what the exact situation is as regards your own pond.

Try asking at you local aquatics center Chub, they can normally get any kind of fish you want.
As for the sturgeon they sell some lovely ones at the Hollybush garden center just off junction 11 of the M6 around 4 to 5ft long & start at 99 each.
