Fished Blunham yesterday and had a great day after not fishing for too long - plenty of nice silvers and the five pound common just capped the day off - nearly dragged my daughter in when she hooked it! Great fishery - we will be back.

Fished Blunham Saturday 26th June. Had mirrors of 6, 6 1/2, 8 and 9 1/2 plus an 8 pound common. Great days fishing, hair rigged pepperami under a tree about 8 inches deep. Have to say the 6 pounder was a proper little demon too!

By  Ross Tierney on

Just returned from fishing on Becks today 20/03/10 and had a few runs and just before packing away landed a 15lb carp, another great day.

By  Paul on

Fished the carp lake on Saturday 20th Feb. Only had one run, but will be back soon to try my luck again. If anyone could get back to me about a good bait for the carp lake it would be greatly appreciatedQ!!!

By  Ed on

The 23rd saw clear water on the fly fishing lake, with 2 degrees. So fishing was very slow, with no fish showing. However my brother in law caught a 2 lb rainbow, but looked to have been in for some time, more luck than skill if you caught on this day. Lets hope the next visit produces a better head of trout.

By  Darren Pearson on

Just called in today to look at the lakes and tackle shop as seen an advert in iycf. i was very impressed with the lakes and made to feel welcome by the staff in the shop who answered all my questions and didn't make me feel uncomfortable as I'm a newbie to fishing.

Spent all day Saturday fishing Becks using small PVA bags (hemp & crushed boilies) and boile hook bait and had one line at around 2pm - resulting in my PB of a 15lb Carp an absolute beauty

By  Paul Woolveridge on

Great set of lakes especially the Becks and Carp. They have great stocks and both are easy to catch. Fished Becks 3 times now: 1st visit: Day session has 3 carp between 10-14lb 2nd visit: Overnight: 2 carp: 1=13lb 1=9lb and 1 trout on luncheon meat 3rd visit overnight had 4 carp : 2 was 14, 1 was 15 and 1 was 10. Fished the Carp lake once and caught my current PB of 21lb 6oz

By  Sam Pateman on Monday 26 Oct 2009

Fished Damsel lake for the first time on 14th oct. Very enjoyable day. Landed 3 lovely trout all about 2lb each and hooked another half dozen which all came off! Out of practice i guess. Trout were taking size 16 nymphs and buzzers. Looking forward to coming back. Very helpful staff. Cheers.

By  john young on Wednesday 21 Oct 2009

Had a fly fishing tuition day last year & now hooked on fluff chucking!! The tuition day is superb & great value for money. Peter Hartley made the day very imformative & very enjoyable. Want something different? Then this is it...can't wait for the 1st October!!!

By  Dave Brown on Wednesday 2 Sep 2009

Had a good day on the becks last Wednesday, started off spodding particle to the island to kick startthe swim so to speak, had nothing for around 2 hours, but I saw a few people catching numerous carp off the surface, so I used this to my advantage and changed a bottom bait (boilie) to a 4.5ft zig rig, went to grab my spod rod and mix of hemp an groundbait and the zig soon had me playing a 12lb common which looked like a ghostie, but the the session slowed with the weather being around 25+ so all I had to end the session was a 6lb hybrid. Be back soon.

By  Ross tierney on Tuesday 25 Aug 2009

Great fishery. I fished the Carp lake last Sunday and caught 3 common carp the largest being 15pounds. I also missed 2 bites so it could have been a very productive day! I'm coming back again very soon.

By  Paul on Sunday 9 Aug 2009

Fished the lovely manor farm complex again today, i fished on the becks with my brother and dad, i was fishing for around well 2 seconds and i had my first take, and that resulted in a 6lb Common carp and then as soon as i put the rod back in the water i recieved another take and that resulted in a 8lb carp, and then another 1 and that was a 6lb, the action soon came to a disappointing low, until the end of the session where a change of rig was in order and i had another 2 carp a 9lb Common and to top it all a 10lb Common, after all this action i want to further my PB of 22lb 8oz to a 30lber so i will be back to attempt the carp lake. be back soon.

By  Ross Tierney on Thursday 6 Aug 2009

For all of you that want advice, me and my boys fish the better lakes quite a bit, catching is simple from these lakes,(carp and becks) simple hair rig with a small hook, any bait, 20 yards out ! when the lead hits the water dont pull back or anything or you'll drag it through weed, presentation is the key...i put my life on it you'll slay them :) ps. one more tip : yellow !! thats all ill say !

By  God on Tuesday 4 Aug 2009

Two of us fished the Carp Lake over the weekend of the 24th and had approx 30 fish between us, the best of which was 2 X 17lb+, 1 X 18lb+ and 2 X 20lb+ including a lovely 25lb 4oz bronze common caught over a spodded area at around 30 yards. A great weekends fishing on a super complex.

i have fished a night on the carp lake twice now and i have yet to catch during the night, could i ahev some tip, which bait, which swims ect. thanks. Joe

By  Joe on Monday 29 Jun 2009

Fished the becks lake twice around 5 weeks ago and had 2 very productive sessions and on one of the sessions I had my first manor farm 20lb carp and that was my second 20 which was on a secret boilie along with another 15 or so carp just in one session I was extactic, on my second session after catching the 20lb mirror I had a less productive session with just 8 carp, I saw them spawning but I managed to fish in the reeds to recieve some excellent action, my advice is not to fish miles out but have 2 rods out to intercept any passing fish, I shall be back soon.

By  Ross Tierney on Saturday 27 Jun 2009

By  simon jeffries on Tuesday 2 Jun 2009

Second visit to manor farm, and it was as much of a disappointment as it was our first. 8 hour of fishing becks and not a bite for either of us. Tried various methods and baits as did the chap in the next swim, who didn't catch either. Even the chap who inspects the tickets commented that it had been quiet all weekend. Sorry to say that this will probably be our last visit to Manor farm, which is a shame as the venue is otherwise good with excellent facilities.

By  Malcolm & Adam on Sunday 31 May 2009

congrats with the very nice website. I will be visiting the lake very soon !

By  Kris on Sunday 31 May 2009

By  Darren on Tuesday 12 May 2009

We had a Girls V Boys match on Winters lake last weekend , with some of the guys and girls off the carp Forum , Had a great time and 10 fish out over the weekend upto 27lb . Found the fish come in very close but do respond well to bait , so dont be shy putting it in , The Margins are well worth ago as nearly all the fish came out from just under your rod tips , a good fishy boilie or maggots did the job for us :-) using Chod rigs ,normal bottom rigs were getting clogged up with weed so choddies were just the thing , All the fish we had were mint condition and some of the best looking carp ive seen for a while :-) Well worth a trip even for a day session stalking. Certainly will be back for another go . Thanks again to Sue for the prizes and for having us all . Duncan

Manor Farm is a brilliant trout fishery there are always plenty of fish and they fight extremely hard. It is a pretty,well run fishery the owners and staff are always pleasant, providing useful tips if you want any advice. Everything about the place is just nice,that's why I take out a season ticket. No, I was not paid to write this. Carry on the good work Sue.

By  stephen on Tuesday 7 Oct 2008

great fishery great staff 30th aug i went fishing on becks on beach i had a 6 lb then i casted my rod out and before i had chance to put the dropper on it was off it weighed in at 15lb then straight after i landed a 14lb both my 2 biggest fish

By  sam on Sunday 5 Oct 2008

Fished the Carp Lake for 48hrs. After a slow start things started to get better. I first landed an 18 lb 4 oz common in open water on a chod rig. The action soon stopped on the open water rod as the fish followed the wind into the bay to my left. I fished big bags of pellet and Tigernut boiles into the entrance of the bay resulting in a 13 lb 4 oz, 20 lb and a 25 lb 2 oz. A nice lake could do with all the fish under 10 lbs removing to create a real specimen lake. Will be back in the future.

By  Andrew Wells on Thursday 2 Oct 2008

Fished Boonies lake for a 48 hour session and had 16 Pike biggest 17.06 all but one on deadbaits. The other was on a sink and draw eel section to a "showing" fish. Great fishery and friendly. Note to the owner/s: Please dont use rocks in the new swims you dig out as us pikers mostly use "sticks" and i found it hard to find a swim on the far bank that i could get my rods in, including bivvy pegs. Great fishery though and will be spending a lot of time on there this winter
