Only opened on friday - stocks Carp to 15lb, tench and roach.

1 large "u" shaped lake small islands dotted around (well i say large

kg of dry bait

Bit pricey at 5 a rod!!!

Hope info is of interest to someone!!

On Sun, 6 Aug 2006, PeteL, gave forth these words of wisdom:
Bit pricey at 5 a rod!!!

Interesting Pete., not that far from me.
Just as a matter of interest is 5 quid for a days fishing expensive?
Can't say as how I've bought a day ticket for quite a few years .always
being a member of a club etc. (11 a season - pretty good value to me)
Cheers,
Alec

Apparently they had a bit of algae and some lack of oxygen in the water
- a few fish had suffered. Also the rules had been blatently abused and
the place had been over fished - they fished out 6oz weights!!!

Supposedly all sorted now but lots of new rules introduced and
inspections of rigs etc before fishing.

It was only my opinion that 5 for 1 rod was quite expensive for this
area when you consider at Longparish (VALE FARM) its 7.50 for 2 rods
and even Shearwater near Longleat is only 7 for 2 rods.

Will update you guys on what its like once i get chance to pop a rod in
the water. Its only 5 mins from me!!

I'd have guessed 4-5 quid is normal.

Can't say as how I've bought a day ticket for quite a few years .always

I think I spent about 70 quid on two cards this year; one of which, I've
hardly used.

I suppose it you are talking about fishing at private fisheries then it
can get quite pricey for season tickets - the monument in Shropshire
for instance is one of the newest fisheries and that is 20 a day and
must be pre booked.

But my point was that I thought 5 for 1 rod was quite expensive
considering the prices for other already established fisheries in this
area - and i suppose it people dont like that price they will just fish
elsewhere anyway.

I still havent had chance to fish there (wife just given birth took
priority) but will update the site about how my experience was when i
get a chance to try it out.

Well i finally got chance to try the WATERGATE FARM fishery - i only
managed to catch a 4lb 8oz common - in excellent condition. Another got
away (isnt that always the case)

Its a well run lake with a friendly baliff/owner (Charlie). - The only
complaint would be no toilet facilities - yet.

Will certainly be going back to try to get some of the tench that i saw
others catching.
