Python holds 37 pegs with an island running through the centre of the lake, and while carp will always be on the scene, there is some terrific silver fish sport to be had. Chopped worms and casters cupped in at just five metres, for big roach, or go long for tench and crucians. Feed tight and concentrate on fishing down on the deck. Pollawyn (55) will offer some big skimmer catches to pole, choppy, casters and finely diced luncheon meat. Feeder, blockend or open-ended, and three maggots on the hook (alive, not dead) is plan A or B, whichever takes your fancy. Twin Oaks, down the bottom end of the fishery, is alive with small carp that will respond to maggots or casters fished in the deeper water down the track, but some bigger samples can be encountered tight over on a maggot feeder. Day tickets are just £5 right across the board and Clint Elliott and his top team of staff can be contacted on 01726 862519. The fully kitted out, on-site tackle shop is a den of information and almost like the proverbial sweet shop for anglers. Check out the website at: or .
