  1. I purchased a Korum 1.5lb tc last summer. Possibly the best rod I have ever purchased. It is so flexible. Whether your float fishing for Tench, Roach etc..ledgering for something bigger or trying to catch a carp on the surface, it does it all with no fuss. A brilliant rod๐Ÿ‘
  2. I heard something similar, or was it the owner of Beaver moaning again๐Ÿ™„ Fished Wire Mill once years ago with my son. All we caught was weed and loads of it. Swims were like the jungle and we were the only ones there. I wonder why.
  3. Pippingford is members only and ยฃ150 p.a But with all that water to choose from and membership restricted, I am giving it serious thought. I have heard that Bay Pond in Godstone is a poor place these days. No idea how you fish the chain of lakes behind the church. You are correct, Godstone AC doesn't seem to exist anymore.
  4. I need to invest in a decent 100% waterproof and comfortable pair of boots. Only want to wear them for fishing. Nothing fancy or thermal. Any recommendations?
  5. Somethings just have to be purchased Enjoy.
  6. Last summer I purchased a Korum Avon rod and a Korum Rodiac 5000 reel. Not the most stunning of equipment I know but they compliment each other brilliantly.
  7. Nine months have passed since my last post and I still haven't been to Pippingford Just found out that Godstone Vineyard has closed its lake permanently as of last November. Sad really as a lot of people would of used it and it was half decent, once upon a time. Pity the owners couldn't be bothered with it. I have had two sessions in the past week at Tandridge Lake and that is fishing well. Several carp on the surface and it's only April Beaver Farm is also fishing well according to my friends. Happy fishing to you all.
  8. Pippingford. I have traveled up an down the A22 more times than I can remember and I've never heard of it. Until now. Thanks for that, I will check it out. Pooter, your description of the Scientology place is perfect.
  9. Ian, It's called Saint Hill Manor now. You have to go through the main security gate and show your membership and rod licence to security. Apparently it's at their discretion as to whether or not you get in. Or out I did a delivery last year to the manor (before I knew they had a lake) and it was a weird experience. Cameras watch you as you drive in, you have to be buzzed in, give them the reg no, tell them where you are going and you are watched all the way until you leave. The freaky bit was the staff, members, or whatever you call them. They all dress and look the same. I thought I was in a
  10. I believe Hedgecourt is a members only lake, something to do with Isfield AC? They also run several other sites around Crawley & East Grinstead including one within the Church of Scientology grounds. Which I have been told has rarely been fished in years. Who knows what may be in that lake or how big?
  11. Funnily enough a colleague who lives in Crawley is due to fish Hunters Lodge this weekend. I had heard it is nice and quiet and the owner restricts the number of anglers there. I fished Wire Mill with my son some years ago. Not a good day as I remember (grass was taller than him) and the guy with the speedboat and his waterskier mate didn't help. I fished a half day at Tandridge Lake last Tuesday and had three nice carp between 3-9lb. The other anglers all seemed to get a very good mixed bag. Still no sign of the elusive 20+lb's or the tench. But we know they are there. Somewhere
  12. Thanks guys. I have informed the owner. It's a venue where you are supposed to dip your nets before starting. I always have and I have seen many others do the same.
  13. Hi All, I caught three carp today from a local lake and took a quick picture of two as they had red blotches on them. Any idea what it is? Close up they look more like sores than blisters. I have read previous threads but thought it might be better to post the photos and let you all have a look.
