Monument Fishery is planning a new lake to be stocked with over 400 fast growing carp ranging from double figures to 25lb. Work will begin on the new eight-acre water in February.

It’s expected to hold 15 pegs and owner Rob Hales plans on keeping the complex’s day ticket stance, charging £60 for a 26-hour session. Monument 1 has been in decent form with catches topped by a 37lb 7oz mirror, taken on maggots.
