Prefer looks to size, but so many of the ď26ísĒ were stocked at that weight and then dropped back to doubles lol.

Going to fish lower for the 40lb common that went over the uppers dam.......lol.......

Wonder if its managed to swim home yet

Word of caution if anyoneís thinking of a trip - the SW lakes trust seem to be moving people on if they arenít from the local area - ie within 10 miles. Happened at Jennets last week. I know some of the local lake owners are doing the same.

Yes,I was over Bradworthy,working on my bosses daughters garden,so,drove to Hemmings,unfolded me M6l,raw and had a slow cycle round after work..

Your right tho,loads of places...most are,shall we say,not quite on the mark about sizes and stock..,but as I've got older,I'm not bothered at all I'm all about that moment..

Bit naughty bout the people on upper eh,no one seems to have fished the lakes in my village, I'm amazed...!!..

I'm not missing the nights,as I love short sessions,getting everything tight..and spot on..

See you on lower,or my son..he loves it,..

Melbury wasnít locked - its on one of my cycle routes. They may have tho as thereís been some anglers kicked off (and from Upper Tamar) for travelling from Brizzle - no way theyíve travelled down here for a day session! Reckon they thought theyíd get away with a session as they are out in the middle of nowhere. Police fined them as well, expensive trip. Thereís a couple of laybyís / forest tracks you can park in a couple of hundred yards up the road, can access it easily.

Thatchers is near Stibb Cross. Not opening for a couple of years iirc.

Willowtree (at Cranford) isnít massive, but Mark only allows 4 on, 2 rods only. Proper lookers in there as well.

Yes, Riverton carp lake is Syndicate

It really depends on what youíre after, lots of small ponds with ďcarp to 26lbĒ but not loads of decent waters down here. But I ďgrew upĒ on 40+ acre lightly stocked pits......

Here's a couple more you may know of or not,a tiny proportion of places I know and have fished...some good,some not so..!!

Simpson valley
Yeomadon
Phil Vickerys fathers complex just before kilkhampton,pasty,farmshop at the
entrance.
Oak tree
Riverside camping
Anglers paradise,day tkts,Eldorado..
Hele Barton,Poundstock
Dutson,up Lanson..


Loads of them,tip of the iceberg...

Frothey mentioned otters,dont get me started,only that they are an issue,see you around..remember it's not all about size,your lucky enough to be living in one of best parts of the UK,so enjoy the countryside.

Clawford vineyards has been sold to a big corporation,no syndicate,and it had planning for 147 or so lodges,so that's the locals out of there..

The gate ,carpark at Melbury is or was locked,when I last went past on my brommie last week,..

Thought Riverton,main carp lake,the one next to the A361,was syndicate, I dont know,but course lake is,or was day tkts..

Hecche moor,that looks good,along with the fantastic scale patterns..

Where to is Thatchers island,seen the youtube blogs of it,interesting..!!
Never heard of willow tree,I'll add that to my list frothey.
Lower Tamar,....see you there..lol,not seen much lutra activity,for a while,plenty of lutra activity in the river next to my lake though..

Upgraded defences now,on lake...

Melbury isnít gated - thats Jennets.
Better lakes (and quieter ) than Riverton - Willowtree at Cranford is new (and despite being not the biggest, bigger than Riverton). Furzebray (if you can get on!) and Hacche Moor are sensibly run and have some real lookers in them. Jennets is the gated one for days only. I keep meaning to give Lower Tamar a go, despite the otters.
Stafford Moor if you donít mind the crowds, Crawford Vineyards still do days (I think) and have a ďsyndicateĒ. Thereís a couple of new syndiís starting if you donít mind instant waters, Thatchers Island is one......

I forgot to add,read Southwest memories on here,by Ken Townley,one if,if not the most successful local carper,read his stuff, all Roche waters most of them..

This is what the Cornish carp scene used to be like,but sadly things have changed. .

Good luck,

Melbury is that one yes..

Best thing to do is go to upper,find Ben Smeeth in his office,or Gary Vogel,speak to these regarding Melbury..

The St Austell,St Blaise areas,like I mentioned full of old mines,clay pits,some very deep,but very atmospheric..

Wheal, means mine...in Cornish..I'm a member of a famous wheal,I'm the last of the last,no more members after me...

Have a look at Rosemellyn,I've not been yet,but I will,up and coming..

Where you live lots and lots of waters,great for short sessions and trying ideas.. I wouldn't bother,going to any of those harder lakes til it warms up,or we get let out to play again..

Brilliant ta for that reply, is melbury the one thatís gated off or could I go and have a walk around it ?... again thanks for the response , much appreciated....Roche angling club requires an interview apparently, and Riverton hasnít replied to my email sadly.....Iím definitely interested in Melbury must say..

Lots of waters around you mate,..loads of them..

But not proper syndicates,we dont have proper syndicates in that area,..

How about joining Roche angling club over in clay country,they have a website,you mention upper Tamar...its 81 acres,and the matches are on the Devon bank,over the dam,that usually leaves the rest of the ressi to fish unless its changed..

What about the canal, or Riverton,or Tarka swims,Melbury even..

Basically your going to have to travel....

Hi all, moved to Bude Cornwall three years ago, anyway am struggling to find a decent syndicate, I canít stand commercial day water fishing , doesnít have to be anything special..

Iíve looked at the whole south west water thing and am considering upper tamer due to its size and scope, but canít decide as seems to have a lot of Matches and the whole lake closes for the weekend.

It just seems very clicky here sadly nothing like Northants where i moved from with lakes like kislinbury and Roman etc ....

Am looking to join BIdeford angling club as itís a steal for the price .... but thats just a side thing for a bit of day time carping as itís very cheap..

Do like my long weekends in my bivvy, thatís a must for me ....


ANY help or even better contact details forwarded would be much appreciated....


Tight line to ya all
