Attila Biggest Fish

4Kevin McConnell Mirror 43lb 2oz
6Paul Dukes Common 36lb 8oz

Attila is the most recent addition to the 'main Lakes' stable, having opened around 5 years ago to supplement the loss of Frog lake from the roster. Attila started life as the stock pond for Fox and Heron but at 18 acres in size is definitely a superb fishery in it's own right now! The lake has 9 pegs and Abbey allow up to 7 Anglers on at any one time, so while there isn't quite as much of a choice should you wish to change swims, it is always a possibility! The stock of Attila is once again a bit of an unknown quantity but estimates tend to suggest in the order of 650-800 carp ranging from mid 'doubles' up to the current lake record of just over 54lb, which was caught in august 2012.

Heron Biggest Fish

20Rhys Phillips Common 45lb 0oz
15Graeme Andrews Other 39lb 8oz

Heron was the second carp lake to open on the complex and at 35 acres, it is currently the largest too. Heron is an English carp fisherman's dream, comprising large open areas, smaller channels, an island and several secluded bays where you can tuck yourself away. There are 22 swims present with a 17 angler limit, again giving everyone the opportunity to move if they want to. The bottom of the lake is also a lot more undulating than in Fox and it is vital to use a marker rod or echo sounder to discover the best features in any given swim! Heron is the weedier of the 2 and in Summer has large beds of canadian pondweed in most areas of the lake, although like Fox, Heron is incredibly deep as opposed to most other commercial fisheries and this still leaves vast areas of the lake clear and allows you to fish over a firm gravel or silt bottom.

Fox Biggest Fish

27Adam Wall Mirror 63lb 8oz
22Simon Gay Common 48lb 2oz

Fox was the first Lake available to fish when Abbey opened it's doors way back in the year 2000. Since then it has progressed at an incredible rate and having matured from being the 'runs water' of old, it is now the jewel in the crown on the complex! The lake itself is around 25 acres in size and is shaped in roughly the same manner as a capital letter P. There are 18 swims around the lake and there is a limit of 13 anglers allowed at any one time, so there is always an option to move should you wish! The make up of the lake is a largely sand and gravel bed with a prolific growth of canadian pondweed around the margins in Summer and some silkweed beds in the central areas of the lake during the same period. There is a large plateau at the top end of the lake (in the head of the 'P') as well as numerous holes, gullies and bars to be found around the rest of the lake. Unlike most other French fisheries, depths range from 6'-8' in the steeply shelving margins down to an average of 14'-16' out in the middle, with deeper areas still between Pegs 14 and 15.

Kingfisher Biggest Fish

40Les Wright Mirror 53lb 14oz
39Rob Chapman Common 47lb 0oz

Kingfisher is something of an unknown quantity. Formerly marketed as Abbey's 'predator' Lake during the early years, it has started to throw up some seriously good looking and seriously heavy carp in equal measure during the past 18 months as the braver souls have tried a little 'pioneering' away from the crowds on Fox and Heron! At roughly 32 acres in size, this almost rectangular lake has it all. Depths range from 2'-42', there is a huge gravel bar that comes up from 24' to a depth of 2' under the surface, nearly cutting the Lake in to 2 halves. There are gorgeous clear, deep margins with depths up to 12' just a rod length out, a vast silty area nearly 4 acres in size, rafts of canadian pondweed and also a huge 'resident' weedbed along one bank that dominates almost a quarter of the lake in the height of Summer!

Wildboar had until recently been divided into 2 halves, catering for both match and specimen anglers but after 2 seasons of successfully netting and removing the smaller carp from WildBoar 2, the decision was taken to remove the temporary fence that had been installed and make the lake a whole again. Wild Boar is set to replace Attila as the 'runs water' on the complex with a huge head of carp that should provide plenty of action for anglers of all ages and abilities! The lake itself is a little over 14 acres in size and an interesting shape, which should give everyone fishing there, their own section of water with no problems from anglers opposite. There will be 12 swims available that can be occupied by no more than 10 anglers at any one time, it averages 10' in depth with fairly steep margins of between 5-6.5' within a rod length of the bank and a maximum depth at the Kingfisher lake end of nearly 20'. The lake's bed is almost entirely composed of sand, gravel and silt with barely any weed whatsoever. In terms of stock, we are unsure of the exact number of carp present but it is safe to say that it's many hundred and therefore, there are plenty for everybody! The majority of them weigh between 18-25lb now, with a few smaller fish still growing on but there are also some absolutely stunning fish in the 30-40lb bracket and the largest carp stocked from one of our external lakes weighs an impressive 55lb!
