"huge amount of weeds in tench"

"Would be cracking lake but huge amount of weeds in tench. Needs cleared asap!!!!!!n".
review from ellie p - 2 years ago


"disappointing"

"Very disappointing, fished tench lake, what tench!!! Spoke to standin bailiff who said that most of the tench had been removed by previous owner, you might catch a few roach and maybe the bream might be feeding. Four of us fished and struggled to catch 3 bream up to 3 lb and half dozen very small roach. Pond extremely weedy, my suggestion don't bother with this lake, few more fishing the carp lake, the other lake has disappear. Come on th owners of this fishery".
