Horseshoe

The Horseshoe was built in 2006 and opened in 2007. There are islands of lily pads and its unique shape lends itself well to fish at different angles on the pegs. New concrete pegs line the lake and have been set 10 metres apart allowing plenty of space for pleasure and match angling. The banks slope down at a 45 degree angle to the bottom where the depth reaches to between 6 to 12 feet.

Horseshoe has 35 pegs.

Fish

The lake has been stocked solely with carp and holds an estimated 2.5 tons of commons and mirrors between 6oz and 22lbs and a good head of F1 hybrids to about 1lb 8oz. it is to uncommon for weights of between 300lbs and 400lbs of fish be caught whilst pleasure angling.

Method

This lake proves popular with anglers who favour the pole and waggles method. The most popular technique here tends to be fishing the pole about half way down the slope although on nearly all pegs it is possible to reach the opposite bank with a 12 metre pole.

Bait

Bait on the Horseshoe is similar to other lakes to include pellets, yellow sweetcorn and maggots.
