News Letter – Winter 2014/15

Our aim is to further develop both Lac Serreire and Badgers Holt into predominantly very big carp waters for the experienced big fish angler. We already have fish well over 70lbs in both lakes along with high numbers of fish in the 40-60lb bracket. Both lakes provide naturally very rich environments for the fish to thrive in. But we have a lot of plans that are now underway to optimise the conditions still further to promote the best possible long term sustainable growth rates and health of the carp.
