The biggest was 14 1\2 pound and I had three at 13 1/2 ...fantastic session..was had by everyone..even had a Chinese delivered to the bank...well worth a visit..5 stars..10/10 dated 19/20/21 may 2014.".

"I visited the fishery about 6 weeks ago and was on match lake No 2. I was using 8mm Red Krill Pellets on a waggler about 3 feet out from the bank,and the Barbel were being landed thick and fast good fish up to about 3.5 to 4.00 lbs and a couple of carp one at 8 and the other at 10 lbs.Oh yes ,the barbel also like sweet corn...What a terrific day..I`ll be back.".
