2015 angling events at Kingsbury

Once again Kingsbury Water Park will be hosting a programme of angling events in 2015 including the British Carp Angling Championships, the UK Carp Cup, mid-week sessions of the Kingsbury Water Park Young Anglers Club and four night fishing sessions. For full details, please follow this link.

Discussions start on 'multiple rod' licence

The Angling Trust has opened discussions with the Environment Agency on the controversial issue of the coarse angling licence for the use of multiple rods, which has been a longstanding complaint of many carp and specimen anglers who feel aggrieved at having to buy two separate rod licences to fish more than two rods.

The Trust say it has been very encouraged by the willingness of Sarah Chare, the new Head of Fisheries at the EA, to consider this and other possible reforms to the rod licence regime. Any changes could not be implemented until April 2016 at the earliest because of the constraints of the commercial rod licence contract. Follow this link for the full story.

Meadowlands closures for Winter League and Christmas matches

Coventry's Meadowlands fishery is closed to day ticket angling on the following dates for its Winter League and Christmas Fur and Feather matches. All dates are Sunday events: Winter Leagues: November 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 and December 7. Fur and Feather: December 21.

Anglers asked to help stop the spread of invasive mussel

The Environment Agency is asking anglers to help stop the spread of an invasive alien species of mussel which is threatening fisheries.

Quagga mussels from south-east Europe have been found in Wraysbury Reservoir in Surrey. According to the EA the mussels smother hard surfaces, block water intakes and change the natural balance of rivers and lakes. The Agency is asking anglers to check, clean and dry their tackle every time they go fishing to help to stop quagga mussels and other invasive species from spreading.

Alex sets new Baden Hall Quarry Lake record

Alex Jaundrell with his 47lb 8oz commonSeptember was a cracking month for carp at Baden Hall's Quarry Lake when it saw the lake record being broken by a 47lb 8oz common.

Not surprisingly the fish was a new personal best for its captor, Alex Jaundrell, who is pictured right with his fish and who also landed a 22lb mirror and a 35lb 3oz common during the same session. Alex was fishing with his dad Neil who had to be content with two commons which tipped the scales at 32lb 8oz and 31lb 10oz! The previous record for Quarry Lake was held by a local angler with a fish of 41lbs which was set in May 2011.

Just a week after Alex's catch Mat Woods also scored a new personal best with a 40lb 5oz common from Quarry Lake.

Pool House Farm still a day ticket fishery

Contrary to the rumors that Pool House Farm Fishery at Hunts Green near Tamworth has been sold to the Police and has been closed to anglers, owner Cedric Heys has confirmed that he is still owner of the venue and is still running it on a day ticket basis.

New... the largest coarse fishery in the UK...

Monk Lakes in Kent
Rated by 'Angling Times' readers as one of Britain's top three mixed coarse fisheries, Monk Lakes at Marden in Kent is believed to be the largest coarse fishery in the UK and the second largest in Europe. With seven well established lakes offering specimen carp, mixed pleasure and match fishing together with two large new specimen lakes in the final stages of development and a 2,000 metre stretch of the River Beult, it has carp to 45lbs, a total of 130 pegs specially built for disabled anglers and night fishing available on all waters. There is also a shop which sells tackle and a catering van which sells food.

Whetstone Gorse Fishery

...a four lake Leicestershire venue...

Offering four lakes on two sites less than a mile apart to the south of Leicester, Whetstone Gorse has a specimen carp lake with fish to 20lbs and a mixed carp and silver fish pool on one site and a carp lake and mixed fishery - both of which are available for matches - on the other. Unlike many fisheries these days, keepnets are allowed on the mixed fish pools and for those looking for a longer stay the fishery has its own caravan site with washing and laundry facilities - plus a lot more.
