Our Carp Pond boasts a fantastic collection of Commons, Scaled, Linear and Ghost Carp, confirmed at up to 12lbs in weight, with an average weight of 4-5lbs.

There is also an abundance of silverfish; Roach, Rudd and Golden Rudd confirmed at up to 2lbs in weight, with the occasional large Perch and Jack Pike also being reported.

We would recommend either a waggler-rod approach with slow-sinking bait or a surface-controller method, with Gold Baits Pellets (Available in Retford Angling Centre or through our Online Shop) proving particularly successful in coaxing the larger examples into a bite.

The Carp Pod has only 5 fishing pegs, each with vehicular access and planted with a variety of wild flower and natural habitat. A wide variety of birds and insects are present on the bank for your appreciation and enjoyment.
