A note about rigs .
The use of
LEAD CORE LEADERS , KORDA SAFE ZONE LEADERS, OR ANY FORM OF LEADER has been banned for some time , do not use them , as
in the past i have had fish tethered by them .
If you are in doubt about you're rig please ask the bailiff for advice
, he will help.
Lead clips / inline lead are fine, as long as the lead can drop of the end if the line were to
Micro / whisker barbs or barbless are fine.
- No day tickets for the specimen lake at the moment ,24hr tickets only .
- I have finished remodelling the pegs on the specimen lake , there are now only
9 numbered pegs in total so this should help to simplify things ( we hope ) pegs 1 - 5 have been lined with chipped-barked
and are now more bivvy friendly.
- Pegs 5 and 8 are
double pegs, so can be fished by one or two angler.
The entrance gate is unlocked at 8 am re locked at 7.30 pm. last entry 7.30 PM the site
is fully otter fenced , you are locked in at night .
The specimen is probably the first lake you will see when you drive into the car-park,
it is on the right.
A very well established
water (over 100 years old) the specimen lake is very well known in the area for being a beautiful carp lake were you
have a good Chance of a large carp.
When it comes to boilie flavours, I would always advise sticking
with what flavours you are confident in using, most of the dynamite range seem to produce well on here.
Large halibut pellet can also work as can pepperami.
This water (like all the others) has lots of fish holding features: lily and reed beds over hanging trees an island
and underwater features - drop offs etc.
