    Does anyone have any info on this venue? Everywhere I wanted to fish today was booked with matches, and despite originally being waterside by 7am, after 2 hours of looking for alternative locations, which didn`t already have too many anglers (or yet more matches), decided to settle fishing here for a couple of hours! I had never been before, but thought i`d check it out as a last resort before giving up and going home!

    There are three small pools here. The largest one (with small island) has approx 20 pegs. I decided to fish this one. I probably only fished for an hour and a half, and it really was a fish a fish every cast. However, the fish were small. VERY small!!! Lots of small commons and mirrors about 3 inches long! Lots of small roach too. A 4oz one was deemed to be a monster!I did get a few larger carp on the meat, but these were only 5-6oz, the biggest being just over 1lb............ Overall, I got the impression nothing big was in here, and this is just a stocking pond. I`ve searched the interweb, and info suggests there are larger carp (boring) but some tench upto 8lb? Are these in one of the other 2 pools, or has the decent stock been moved?

    Any info or advice would be hugely appreciated.
