Nine lakes to choose from at Bradshaw Hall Fisheries

Situated in a tranquil valley well away from the urban hub of the main town, Bradshaw Fisheries certainly aims to provide for every type of angler.

Since the complex was taken over by new owners a couple of years ago, it has gone from strength to strength, with all of the nine lakes producing the best action in the their history.

Pole anglers are bagging up on Lake 8 and 9, with the brace of snake lakes the perfect place to land a big mixed net that will be made up on carp, tench, F1s and silverfish. Fish maggot or pellet to the far bank, taking a look down the margins from time to time in an effort to pick out a few bigger samples.

Those that prefer a rod and line attack won’t go far wrong on Lake Four with the Method feeder and pellet waggler both scoring for 80lb nets of carp. This lake is also home to huge numbers of roach and 30lb of them certainly isn’t out of the question if you fish maggots or casters shallow.

Lake Two is the first choice of many specimen anglers and carp to over 20lb falling frequently to boilies, with corn, hemp and casters a better option for bream and tench to over 7lb.

It is also the ideal place to introduce newcomers to the sport, with the smaller and more intimate Lakes One, Five and Six all on fire for roach, perch, skimmers and chub to 3lb.
