The paradox of choice – which lake to fish?

Hartley Lands Farm Fishery is situated in Cranbrook, Kent. Located on an organic fruit farm, you can be sure to spend time here in picturesque and relaxing surroundings.

There is a mind boggling choice of 8 different waters to take your pick from:

Farm Reservoir – a cracking water, which is stocked with all species. The carp record is just short of 30lbs. Adapting your fishing to the weather conditions should see you with a great catch at the end of your session.
Nick’s Lake – there are plenty of carp in here that run into the low 20s. There’s also a good number of silver fish – these must feed the perch which are said to go to 5lbs.
Pear Tree – a lake stocked with carp and silvers. If the carp aren’t feeding you can bag up on the smaller fish.
Bramley – a 22 peg lake which is stocked with a very good head of mixed species. It should be a bite a chuck on here – all year round.
Finches – a very well established pond with lots of fishy features. The carp in here go to just shy of 30lbs, there is also a resident eel to target.
Henniker – a small lake with plenty of cover. Pole fished to the far bank and you could land one of the big carp the run into the late teens.
Samson – if you don’t fancy a walk, fish next to the car park on here. Pole tactics work well.
Woodside – a small lake with just 5 pegs. Don’t be fooled though, there are double figure carp under the surface.
