Wraysbury 1 South Lake to open in Spring/Summer 2016!
Following the separation of the North and South sides of Wraysbury 1 in 2015 we are delighted to announce the opening of the South lake for the 2016/17 season. Wraysbury’s North lake successfully opened to the public in 2015 as a day ticket water and has seen visitors arriving from around the globe to spend time on the banks and try to catch one of the originals.
A view over Wraysbury 1 South Lake
Wraysbury 1 South lake will open in Spring 2016 as another day ticket venue. The 70 acre lake is home to a large head of both common and mirror carp following on from the stocking of the venue in 2013/14. Those fish currently range from double figures up to 30lbs at present. Alongside these is a head of original fish the numbers of which are unknown at present, but there have been eight fish this season ranging in weight from 33.4lbs up to 42lbs. We wouldn’t be surprised if there was a 50lb+ lurking in the depths.
For our predator fishermen and women, RK Leisure will be offering a boat service where the group will be accompanied by a pike fishing expert for the excursion. This will be followed by a lakeside barbecue after a long day on the water. More information on this and how to book will be announced in February newsletter.

It is almost one year since the doors opened to our small shop situated in the heart of Wraysbury village. For those that have not been to visit yet, the shop was originally tailored to suit the modern carp angler. However, this year we are giving it a twist and alongside the current selection of brands such as Mainline Baits, Korda, Fox, Avid, Cotswold Aquarius, ESP, Gardner, Dynamite, Navitas, Trakker, Fortis and Enterprise Tackle to name a few, there will be the addition of N-Brice, Matrix Innovation and Thinking Anglers as well as a selection of outdoor clothing and equipment.
To tie in with the new season, the shop will also have new opening hours from 08:00 – 17:30 hours from Tuesday to Saturday and from 08:00-midday on Sundays. The shop is closed all day Monday. For enquiries please call 01784 488060.

In 2016 RK Leisure have introduced a new Black Membership ticket. This will entitle the ticket holder to fish the whole of the Horton Complex as well as giving access to Wraysbury 1 North and South lakes at any time, subject to availability within the booking system.
For those unaware of Wraysbury 1 North, it is currently home to 12 carp in excess of 40lbs and a further 28 fish over 30 lbs. As previously mentioned in the newsletter, the South side of the lake is home to an unknown quantity of large original carp up to 42lbs.
