LARGE CARP POOL
The large carp pool is approximately ¾ of an acre. It is 12 feet deep in the centre and has a shallow western edge. The fish are Common, Mirror, Crucian and Grass carp, ranging from the smallest to a pool record 25lbs carp, caught by a 14 year old boy in 2004.
There is plenty of tree cover to get under to protect you from the cold weather, bank edges to fish under, or wide banks to sit on and relax with your family or friends. You can try almost any technique; simple floating bread is often the most successful but remember to be careful with the fish whatever you use.
The pool is always a red colour as a result of the bottom feeding carp that stir up the clay on the bottom. £5.00 per rod per day.
SMALL CARP POOL
The small carp pool is approximately 25 feet across and is ideal for those hoping to catch many smaller carp or roach. It is a fantastic breeding pool for the carp and roach and when we have netted it, we have been able to remove many kilos of fry. Children love this pool as most casts catch something, even if it is just a gudgeon.
The carp are up to 8lbs in weight and of various types, including some goldfish. £5.00 per rod per day.
SILVER FISH POOL
The Silver Fish Pool was the last pool to be dug at Clay Farm and has tench, roach, bream and chubb. It is a very popular pool for contests. £5.00 per rod per day.
We are considering syndicating one or two of the pools and so would welcome any interest in these pools.
Any of the pools can be booked for contests either on a part or whole pool basis. Booking a whole pool for the day will cost £100. As described earlier, we are a family friendly, fishing establishment, but this does not mean that we do not have strict rules that have to be followed.
