"Great Fishery "

"Caught bags of fish including a number of small carp. Great Fishery.".
review from Ben. T

"had great fun at this fishery "

"This is a very, very shallow lake with lots of lively pale looking carp. We had great fun at this lake, we caught 9 carp between us and everyone gave a good fight. Not sure if it is because it is a shallow lake but we noticed the fish loved to jump out of the water..".
