Our 5 Beautiful Lakes
This lake has 31 swims - 8 of these are on a central island accessed by a footbridge. There are six other islands plus many other features giving each swim an individual feel.
The Match Lake is planted with trees, native shrubs, bullrushes, irises and lily pads.
The lake is heavily stocked with a mixture of carp - common (to 10lb), mirror (to 10lb), grass, koi, crucean; tench (to 5lb); golden tench (to 3lb); bream (to 5lb); skimmer bream; roach (to 1.5lb); rudd; golden orfe; chub; perch.
In the autumn of 2011 we took delivery of 300 specimen tench including 350 golden tench. More photos are in the gallery.
A paddle aerator is used in this lake to keep it open and fishable during even the coldest frosts in winter.
The pleasure bag record on this lake is held by John Harrison, a recent recruit as a season ticket holder, who had a fabulous total bag of 138lb. The record was previously held by Mike Smith of Warmley with 135lb.

"Bullocks Farm Match Lake is in my opinion the best Crucian Carp match venue in the South West. The venue never ceases to amaze me, thirty inches deep with plenty of quality Roach, Skimmers and Crucians (if you can catch them) and of course Carp to double figures." Mike Nicholls - Silver Fox Angling blogspot, 03.05.09 on fishing in a Carps AC match
