            Coarse Venues:-

            Eye Kettleby, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire

            IN the beginning there were two well-established lakes set in sprawling Leicestershire countryside, but after expansion and a lot of hard work, Joe and Martin Lomas now oversee no less than six well-stocked lakes, all exuding their own particular characteristics that hold attractions for every angler.

            The planning that has gone into this fishery gives anglers the opportunity to feel that they are fishing away from the day-to-day rat race of modern life and in the knowledge that a few fish are a certainty.
            Lake 1 is the smallest with about 10 pegs, but with plenty of mixed species stocked, along with carp to 18lb patrolling the island, it is certainly no small beer.

            Lake 2 is the 'Carp Lake'. It holds 25 pegs and is eight feet deep but has three underwater islands where the depth is three feet. With carp to 28lb and bream to 8lb, some of which can often be seen happily 'grazing' on the island plateaus during the warmer weather, specimen tactics are called for and tackle needs to be beefed up.

            Walk down the gravel track from Lake 2 and you will find 36-peg Lake 3. This is one of the oldest waters at Eye Kettleby, and it's certainly a feature-packed water.

            Species include prime crucians, tench, chub, sparkling rudd, roach, skimmers and plenty of carp. Over 600 'pasties' are present and these fish will provide good 'fun sport'. However, the water also holds carp to 30lb. Boilies are a popular bait, but local anglers tell me that the roaming beasts have a penchant for meaty baits, bread and dog biscuits during summer evenings.
            Maggots, corn, caster and fruit-flavoured pellets fished with pole and waggler are the baits and methods to enjoy all the 'fun of the fair'.

            Lakes 4, 5 and 6 are the latest additions and all three have central islands to give anglers a good fish-holding feature to go at. Fish patrol them and feed very close to their banks.

            Lake 5 holds predominantly carp to 10lb backed up by a wealth of skimmers. You can park right behind your peg on all 3 lakes.

            Eye Kettleby may have a funny name but it is as diverse a fishery as any angler could hope for. What's more it's a superb location.

            The views are stunning and the wildlife, which includes pheasants and kingfishers, is a joy to behold.


            Midland Angler Top Tip -

            Sweetcorn is a great bait all year round just as it comes out of the can, but it can pay dividends if you take a little time to prepare the 'yellow peril' beforehand by giving the kernels an extra kick. Simply tip the contents of a large tin of corn out into a tub and flavour with Corn Steeped Liquor (CSL), and if you really want to turn those fish on, add a dash of Nutrabaits Liquid Trigga as well.

            "Lake 3 is full of features and carp, but it makes a change to go for the roach, rudd, tench and skimmers using waggler and maggots because it's easy fishing." Chris Butterfield, Birstall, Leicester
