Burghfield to go syndicate

ONE of the country’s most famous big carp waters is set be turned in to a syndicate after being taken over by new owners.

Burghfield Main Lake in Berkshire, home to the highly sought after Burghfield Common, has been purchased by Advanced Angling after previous owners CEMEX put their whole portfolio of waters up for sale.

Some of the biggest names in the sport including Terry Hearn and Nigel Sharp have targeted the venue in the past, and the lake’s biggest resident was most recently caught by current British record holder Oz Holness at a weight of 57lb 8oz.

Anglers could previously fish the 94-acre lake for less than £100 a year, but from April 1 it will be run as a syndicate costing £500 a year. There will also be a winter membership ticket available running from November 1 – March 1 for £150.

As well as the Main Lake, Advanced Angling have taken control of the Burghfield Blue Pool and Gold Lake, a stretch of the River Kennet which runs close to the waters and Chertsey Lake. The Blue Pool and Gold Lake are both available for exclusive group bookings for £180 and £160 for 24 hours respectively. Chertsey will be run on a syndicate basis costing £450 a year.

Anyone interested in putting their name down to join the syndicates should call Advanced Angling on 0844 8004408 or visit: www.advanced-angling.com.
