Venue file - Barnstone Lakes, Fishers View

Fishers View is the newest addition to the fast expanding, popular day-ticket complex. Run on a lake-exclusive booking basis only, this mature and intimate venue boasts three swims, catering for a maximum of four anglers complete with its own barbecue, fire pit, and shelter. Furthermore, toilets and showers are located a short walk away beside Fishers Pit.

Covering approximately two acres in size, Fishers View boasts a wide array of features including lily pads, rushes and no fewer than three separate islands. Depths throughout the venue go to over six feet in places with an average of four to five feet. A predominantly clean, clay substrate makes presentation of rigs and bait easy, with scatterings of Blue Lias stone throughout. Stocked with a fine selection of 50 carp from an array of renowned fish farms, the average stamp of fish is upper double to 20lb, with two fish sitting just above the 30lb mark. The stocking is a mixture of both common and mirror carp; showing pristine condition and great health these fish really do give a great account of themselves.

Along the margins, there are plenty of well-established overhanging trees, allowing anglers to present marginal traps to the islands and the nearside banks. Fishing over light scatterings of bait seems to be the way to go, and a baiting pole would give you the edge over anglers opting to cast, allowing you to get tighter to the abundance of features available.

Ticket Prices: £100 to £125 for 24-hour lake exclusive for up to four anglers

Top Tip: Be quiet and use the washing line method or baiting pole!
