One of the UK’s most popular and prolific holiday complexes just got bigger and even better with the addition of a brand new fishery plus anglers are now enjoying its best run of form so far in 2013.
Anglers Paradise in Devon boasts over 30 fish-filled stillwaters that cater for pleasure and specimen fishermen alike and the recently opened ‘Xanadu’ is the latest addition to the portfolio, which boasts large numbers of carp between 20lb and 30lb.
This compliments the hugely popular Main lake that boasts no less than 100 pristine carp over 20lb along with catfish to well over 50lb and the Specimen Carp Lake has just hit top form and a red hot week for big fish was topped by the capture of ‘Tadpole’ at 31lb 6oz and caught by James Hudson.
These are just a handful of many venues including the Specimen Carp Lake , Nirvana Kracking Carp, Octopussy and the Easy Access Lake, that help make this complex one of the UK’s premier big fish destinations.
But this stunning complex is not all about big fish.
During the last week pleasure anglers have also been reporting huge catches of carp, tench, orfe and silver fish from ‘bite-a-chuck’ venues such as the Beginners Carp Lake, Pixie, Magic, the Koi and the Float Lakes.
The sheer variety of species on offer is almost unrivalled at any other fishery in the UK and anglers of all ages and abilities are guaranteed to fill their nets whether they’re flicking out a float and spraying maggots or fishing a small Method feeder in conjunction with a pellet or a grain of corn on the hook.
It’s not just the fishing that keeps anglers coming back year after year as award-winning accommodation, coupled with a unique atmosphere created by owner Zyg Gregorek and his family helps deliver the perfect fishing experience for any angler.
