This is easy

1) Holly farm - Freindly owner with common sense and a well laid out fishery.
2) Browning Tingrith - As above but is local to me and run by some very nice people.
3) Severn at Bridgnorth - memeories are wonderfull things.

But I'd like to add my least favorite which is Browning Cudmore - where the statements on 1 & 2 most certainly do not aply.

Great info, great guys, great fun, thats Maggot Drowners

Good question, now let me think, i would say that my top 3 uk waters would be
1) Clattercote res nr Banbury - stuffed full of fish and always a fun days fishing
2) Drayton res - as above but they're BIGGER!
3) Thames around Benson (oxon) - when you get it right, it can be fantastic, loads of big chub and perch - lovely chubbly[:p]
I know my first 2 choices are out and out bagging waters, but i really enjoy this style of fishing.

Abroad no1 = Barbados - catching small tropical reef fish from the shore on a tropical island! love it!

I cant say i've got any favourite waters as i seam to keep changing waters all the time.

But i will agree with some of the previous waters mentioned.

Agree with Polepot regards Holly Farm
And Angler Mark regard Riddings.

Hi Al,Welcome to the forums and good question
Here's some of mine in no particular order(and yes i know i've picked 4,but as you'll see one of those can't be fished anymore [:(])

British Isles
  • Old Bury Hill
  • Witley Park
  • Gold Valley
  • River Thames
Abroad
  • Lanesboro (Ireland)
  • The rest of the time i'd rather go scuba diving and watch the fish [:D]


Old Bury Hill gives you the chance to get a punt out and fish areas of the old estate lake that would otherwise be unfishable.Great Fun in Great surroundings [:D]
Also offers a match lake(for the "baggers" among us),and another lake (Milton's) with some of the most beautiful Crucians you are ever likely to encounter.

Witley Park.This venue had 2 lakes set in a huge estate just outside Guildford offering Crucian fishing of the highest order in amongst a setting of marble dolphin fountains and victorian grandeur.15 years ago match weights in excess of 150lbs weren't uncommon.Unfortunatly this venue has been lost due to the estate being sold off and turned into a conference centre.


Gold Valley.This probably shows the way forward for commercial fisheries.A clubhouse offering breakfasts and meals during the day and a bar for after [;)] Secure parking,M/F WC's,on site tackle shop with coaching available mid-week and a good mixed fishery (contrary to popular belief it's not all carp [;)])

River Thames and it's tributaries,this offers everything that the river angler could possibly want,holding probably every species that swims in every type of swim.The only problem being that one lifetime wouldn't be sufficient to tackle it[:)]

Lanesboro at the top of Lough Ree in County Longford.This is where the River Shannon enters Lough Ree.There is a peat fired power station with a warm water outlet which discharges into the river here just above the road bridge.It offers some of the finest Tench fishing i've ever encountered anywhere and "The Craic" in the local bars is mighty.


Peter.
