The Old Pool

one of our carp lakes we have to offer  


​The Old Pool 


​The old pool was one of our first lakes to be built, it is situated next to the cabin and is a day ticket water with night fishing also available. But please try to book in advance as we only allow five anglers on per session. The pool itself has a lot to offer when it comes to carp (8lbs-24lbs+) The carp are quick to the rushes in this pool so it pays to be quick on the rods. An amazing mixture of mirrors and commons. The pool itself has some cracking features such as rushes, over hanging trees, an island and lily pads, it really gets that carp radar buzzing. We have bait available for you carp anglers on site (Impulse bait).
