Lid lifted on top silverfish stillwater

Angling Times this week lifts the lid on the greatest ‘silverfish only’ stillwater in the land.

The lake is located within the walls of one of the country’s best carp bagging complexes but the management have left one pool free of mirrors and commons and it has turned into a popular haven with match and pleasure rods alike.

Huge hauls of barbel, chub, tench and bream have been recorded in recent weeks, with countless triple figure nets being taken.

What’s even more impressive is that virtually any tactic is capable of scoring heavily, with long pole, margin fishing and feeder approaches all in deadly form.

To find out more about this top silverfish haven, pick up a copy of this week’s Angling Times, on the shelves from Tuesday August 9.
