Arthurs Pool

A dedicated specimen carp lake with a difference, set up by a carp angler for carp anglers.

The pool is 2 acres in size and boasts many water craft features such as gravel bars, drop offs, plateaus and lilly beds. We’ve introduced a lot of natural food into the lake, including fresh shrimp and muscles.

Designed for your bivvy to sit on, there are eight well-spaced, permanent pegs that have fast drainage. All have a twin socket power supply, and low level lighting at the flick of a switch for tying rigs etc. Additionally, each peg has its own inbuilt LED light for landing fish without a head torch.

We introduced 62 carp ranging from 15 lbs to over 44lbs, with 15 30lb and 3 40lb present, all of which have been grown by ourselves for over seven years in one of our stock pools. They’ve have been raised on pellet, maize and barley mix. We’re so confident with the quality of stock and growth rates that we offer a full, money back guarantee if you catch a fish below 15lbs from this pool! All fish in this pool are micro chipped for growth rates and anti-theft purposes, and there is an annual netting each November to which all former anglers are welcome to attend.

Growth rates in this pool have been above 10% due to the quality of the carp stock and the regular monitoring of the oxygen levels (which are taken twice daily), as well as nitrates, nitrites and ammonia levels (which are taken weekly.) We are confident that this pool will attain a 50lb+ carp within a couple of years.

The price for this lake is £40 for 24hrs or £25 for 12 hrs, with a 2 rod limit. Pre-booking for this pool is essential.

When booking seven 24hr sessions, you are only charged for the price of six! Contact us for more details on this offer.
