Whether you are an experienced angler or a novice, you can enjoy fishing in Mill Meadow’s private lake.
Our lake is stocked with a variety of coarse fish, including three types of carp: common, mirror and grass, tench, rudd, roach, silver bream, chub and eel.
Our friend Martin Baldock, well known local football referee and cricketer, is also a very keen and experienced fisherman.
“My dad took me fishing as a boy, for which I have fond memories, but unfortunately his knowledge of fishing was as much as mine and we learnt as we went, making many silly errors along the way.
Over the years I have learned an immeasurable number of tips essential to the art of fishing and my passion now is to share information to ensure that the fish are well looked after. I have helped many young people to fish in an appropriate manner, looking after the fish at all times. Barbless hooks have been a major breakthrough, but tying them properly so that they don’t come undone and stay in the fish’s mouth is so important.
Mill Meadow is the perfect environment to learn how to fish and I am delighted to be able to help them in their quest, to do everything possible, to ensure the welfare of the fish in their care.
I look forward to spending many happy hours helping guests to enjoy their experience at Mill Meadow passing on the necessary skills to enjoy fishing for life as I continue to do.”
We have accessible platforms so that fishing can be enjoyed by all.
Subject to adequate and availability notice Martyn can be available to give the novice the right start and his time will be included when you book a fishing permit at Mill Meadow. He can also be on hand to exchange ideas with the more experienced so that together we can ensure the best possible experience for our guests and importantly the welfare of our fish.
