Iden Wood Fishery

Iden Wood Fisheries is a well establised fishery that is made up of four man-made lakes and two natural lakes. The four man-made lakes are the top Spring Lake, the two match lakes just below the Spring Lake and the tench lake just below the second match lake. The Specimen Lake is a natural lake that is the largest lake of the fishery, stocked with the largest fish. The final lake is the Orchard Lake which is the furthest lake on the complex. The fishery is very good at offering flexible ticket prices for flexible fishing hours, whether you want to fish just for an evening or you want to fish a whole weekend there are tickets to suit. The water has a number of rules that must be observed which would be wise to check before fishing the waters. Iden Wood Fishery has a policy of not allowing fisherman to fish with boilies. The policy opens up a whole new world of how to catch the large carp.
