Yeah I completely agree mate. From speaking to people it's not as bad as that anymore. Truthfully my main reason for wanting to fish them is because it simply looks stunning. I am however very aware that I am on limited time, and as much as I don't mind a challenge, I also don't want to be fishing for 2 or 3 fish a season lol

Blimey, 25 years ago they'd have you believe you'd get your car torched if you hooked a tench at Frensham. Land a carp as an outsider and I think the penalty was a curse on your family for seven generations. Pets included.

I walked round the ponds a few times in the 90s. Some right grumpy buggers fishing it then. Taking things far too seriously. If it's still like that, find somewhere else with decent company, there's more to fishing than old carp.

This is it mate. Unfortunately I don't have loads of time at the moment with 2 kids both under 3 and a pub to run, if I knew there was one definitely left it would be worth blanking with the little time that I have 😂

From what I have read in recent years they have now all sadly passed. There has always been a lot of misinformation about the place though....if there is just one of those Lenexa left then it is worth giving it a go.

Thanks for your reply mate. I know it's low stock, but you can never be sure if a lot of it is people trying to keep new people from fishing it! Would love to know a couple of them Leneys were still going

In April 2013, the Frensham Little Pond bailiff team confirmed that there are 4-5 of the original Leney Carp, with one fish around the 40lb mark and the others between 27 35lb.

How many of those 4-5 leneys are still alive, 8 years on, is anyone's guess

Evening guys,

I am imaging a very low number of replies to this if any, but I was hoping for just a glimmer of information regarding Frensham little pond. All I want to know is how many carp are left in there, I'm not too worried about weights, but I'm really interested in the old Leney stock in there.

Feel free to PM me if you would prefer.

Massive thanks in advance,

Aaron
