FFF OPEN MATCHES EVERY SATURDAY.
Far Hope Pool
Fishing on Far Hope is around a central island, and offers excellent fishing for the match man or pleasure angler alike. Generously stocked with Carp, Bream, Crucian, Rudd, Roach, Chubb, Barbel and scale-perfect Tench, the pool has widely-spaced pegs offering varying distances. The depth of the pool ranges from 5-8ft. Good baits to use are pellet, meat and corn with castor and maggot in the colder months. Equally fruitful is a chuck to the island using running method, feeder or lead. (1 acre / 22
Big Beam Pool
Stocking is similar to Far Hope. At nearly 2 acres, Big Beam is the largest pool here at Fields Farm. A canal by design, Big Beam has match and pole fishing in mind, with nearly all of the pegs fishing at 13.5 metres wide to the far bank. Split into three legs, this pool can accommodate small or large matches alike. The depth ranges from 5- 8ft. With expander, meat or corn fished over a bed of microse or hemp, can bring good results down the track. Equally, paste does well in the margins. (2 acres / 52 pegs)
Kingfisher Pool carries a far more mature stock than the match waters, and offers excellent all year round fishing. Ghost, Mirror and Common Carp are all present, reading weights towards and well past the 20lb mark. Tench to 6lb, Bream to 7lb are also catchable, with Barbel to 4lb, Chub to 3lb, Crucian to 3lb, Roach and Rudd to 2lb and Perch being recorded at well past 3lb. Depths range from 5 to 9ft. (1.5 acres / 32 pegs)
This irregularly-shaped lake has many features to investigate, including the sunken island where fish can always be found. A good head of quality Carp to 15lb, Bream to 5lb, Roach to 2lb as well as plenty of quality Crucian, Rudd, Tench, Bream, Chub, Barbel and Perch. In addition to the island, reed and lily beds prove to be good features to fish to. Successful tactics also include fishing to the bottom of the marginal ledge. Good baits include expanders, castor, meat and corn. (1.3 acres / 33 pegs)
