Tinca Steve, off subject but can I ask - (I will probably join FAC) are there any decent roach in Summer Pit or any of their other waters?

Some of the Yateley waters(big carp) have got some decent roach and the record is 3.02lb from Lodge pond.

As the Farnham website suggests "Crucian Carp to 1lb 4oz +", that the days of Summer Pit throwing up absolute whoppers is a thing of the past?
Do they have a time machine on site?

Crucians, The supposed record cru did not come from summer pit but another very local lake.
If this works out and everybody wants to have a go at the crucians then maybe we could have a day on Marsh Farm , Harris Lake as it's day ticket. I've had them to 3lb 01 oz. The average is 1.5lb to 2lb at a later date.

Just thought I'd better make sure that everyone knows that this would be a Farnham members only knock about.

I have caught tench roach and perch every time I've fished it. The Tenchfishers hold a help day on there every year and l believe that the best was 11 tench to the best angler.
More on Tenchfishers TV youtube channel.

No probably a day session for the first time.
Night rules can make it difficult for a group.

Just seen summer pit has been stocked with 1000+ 8-10" crucians 👍
Might see if I can get a couple of hours down there this weekend at some point

Will have to see who's going and pair people up if possible. I can get one and it's up to the other members if they want to help.
