Arthur’s Specimen Pool

Arthur’s Pool is our dedicated specimen lake with a difference. It was set up by a carp angler for carp anglers and incorporates many water craft features such as gravel bars, drop offs, plateaus and lily beds. The pool is roughly 1.5 acres in size, and has had a lot of natural food introduced, including fresh shrimp and mussels.

The Pool hosts 7 well-spaced permanent pegs, each with fast drainage and designed for a bivvy to sit upon. There is a twin socket power supply for each peg, and low-level lighting for tying rigs etc. An in-built peg light is also in place to aid in landing fish without a head torch.

In 2016, 62 carp between 17lbs and 52lbs were introduced, grown by ourselves in one of our stock pools and raised on pellet and barley mix. At present (last netting February 2017) there are 2 at 50lb, 4 at 45lb, 2 at 40lb, 15 at 30lb and they are still growing. The biggest recorded weights of the fish in this pool are a common carp at 51lb 4oz and a mirror carp at 47lb 11oz.

All fish in this pool are micro-chipped for growth rates and anti-theft purposes. Growth rates in this pool have been above 10% due to the quality of the carp stock and the regular monitoring of the oxygen levels (which are taken twice daily), nitrates and ammonia levels (tested weekly).

Due to our fish spawning yearly, we have pike present and also a few Stockies between 1-6LB which will be our future 30-50LB carp.
