The most recent lake at Manor Farm is the 23 peg match canal which opened in 2005. This canal is heavily stocked with home-grown carp to 8lb, bream, skimmers, roach, perch, rudd and tench. Results on the match canal have given bags of between 40lbs and 100lbs fished on pellet or maggot.
Bags approaching 150lbs have been taken during 5 hour matches, making this a brilliant venue for clubs or groups looking for a prolific catch rate.
The match canal is float only, no feeder, and can be booked for groups by prior arrangement. Keepnets and landing net heads are provided for Matches only. When fishing the Canal on day tickets keepnets cannot be used, and landing nets must be dipped prior to fishing.
The average depth of the Canal is about 6 feet. Its 20m wide and fished in a staggered / herringbone formation. There is car park immediately adjacent to the Canal. You must check on availability, especially at weekends prior to fishing.
This is an ideal starter lake, giving children plenty of experience of catching small fish. Cub groups and other similar organisations are welcome by prior arrangement.
