The fishing like the accomodation is excellent you're going to love it! - I'm off there again in September this will be my 4th year running!
WORD OF WARNING: What out for Zyg's home made wine it's absolutely lethal! - 2 glasses = 1 day's lost fishing!
Easy Access lake:
Good lake, but the only easy bit is the access to it! Caught carp to 16lb on there with Scource and pineapple boilies. It's great to watch the small fish scarper when the cat's are about.
Beginners Carp Lake:
Great fun to be had on there catching on pellet, sweetcorn or luncheon meat, - not giants but they fight like stink.
Hard lake but the fish are there but need some coaxing out.
Main Carp Lake:
Only fished it once had a few carp out to 8lb.
Caught a few nice Golden Tench out of that lake on sweetcorn.
Specimen Carp Lake:
Had a few carp out of that lake largest topping the scales at 31lb caught on glugged* hair rigged halibut pellets with lobworm on the hook - bit of elastic band to stop it wriggling off. (*Glugged in halibut oil for 3 months before the holiday) Lost a catfish at the net last year when doing an overnighter.
Bait Hut on site sells a good range of baits and tackle and the guy in there (whose name temporarily escapes me) is very helpful.
Zyg has also opened a few new lakes this year which I'm going to have a look at these include a Predator Lake - cats and Perch, A Big Boys Lake for carp, and 2 Trout Lakes.
Eating out: Try the Junction Inn which is just up the road. Prices very reasonable and very filling.
