Carp fishing at Lakeside Cottages: Carp to forty have been landed, and bigger fish are present, if the fishing is quiet on a slow day you might only catch half a dozen teens and twenties, but on a good day expect to catch into double figures or more with a good possibility to catch thirties and even forties among them.

Tackle: Bring strong sufficient carp hooks, bait runner reels, braid and mono, braid and mono, can be purchased locally at reasonable prices and bring plenty of inline method feeders and 2oz to 3oz leads.

Mikes tips: A strong landing net, a must is a really good strong catapult bring two with spare pouches and elastic. Mike suggests Trevor Tomlins whopper dropper with carp mats essential and if you forget Mike has some spare.
