Vermuyden lake
Vermuyden lake is named after the Dutch engineer responsible for the drainage of the fens and is a heavily stocked lake of some 2-3 acres. The stock includes 200+ carp to 28lb, Tench, Roach, Rudd and a few Barbel. Very popular with anglers new to carp fishing and also experienced anglers who enjoy plenty of arm aching action. Many of the fish in this gem of a lake are into double figures.

Ash Tree Pool

Much smaller in comparison to Vermuyden at 3/4 acre with 12 swims. A nice little lake for a bit of pole or float fishing. Smaller fish as well as a good stock of carp up to double figures makes it ideal for beginners.
This lake responds well to waggler and pole tactics close in on the marginal shelf. Sport fast and furious with a favorite method being loose fed hemp and maggots on the float.
You can expect sport both summer and winter in this well stocked pool.
