"Awesome day today on the bottom lake guys feeding
like crazy...literally didnt go a cast without a fish. Got my little bro right back into fishing - and some lovely sized carp
came out too."
from Ebbw Vale - after a day on Sophie's (July 2014)
Welcome to the latest edition to the "Redhill family" -
A smaller lake with just
13 pegs has been added at the top end of the complex. Micky's holds a very healthy stock of prime carp to 7lbs, plus some
nice tench. Well worth a visit!
This is the lake nearest the on-site facilities and has 20 well positioned pegs, all with easy access.
The lake holds many features ranging from Bullrushes between some pegs and close marginal features.
It is well stocked with Mirror and Common Carp
up to double figures, plus Tench to over 2lbs, Roach and Rudd.
Favoured baits on this lake are sweetcorn and banded
hard pellet - sometimes fished shallow. Paste also achieves excellent results in the warmer months.

pool with 21 pegs and similar depths and characteristics is Molly's. In addition to the Common and Mirror Carp, Molly's also
has Ghost Carp to 12lb and skimmer Bream. Methods employed are similar to those on Sophie's - pellet, corn
and paste. On both lakes sizeable fish can be taken close in by the bankside vegetation - especially in the warmer months.
This is the
newest and largest lake at the fishery, boasting 40 excellent pegs.
Depths range from 2-14 ft.
water has carp of all varieties, including specimens to double figures. There is also good stocks of bream, skimmers, golden
rudd, roach and chub.
Whilst offering a different challenge to the pleasure angler, the pool is also an excellent match
The long pole seems to produce most match weights, but the feeder/straight lead and the waggler can also
give pleasing results.
Bait requirements are pellet and corn at most times of the year.
and oldest of the smaller lakes is Tilly's which offers depths up 12ft in the middle. This lake holds
larger specimens for the specialist angler including Carp to 25lb, as well as Bream, Tench, Roach, Rudd and Chub
to good sizes.
