Join the premier Essex carp syndicate - Fryerning Fisheries

July Update 2013 by Adam Penning

There are still hopefully a few weeks of good summer weather to come and as I write this...

We have been blessed with the best one we have had in a long time. My own fishing time has been sporadic to say the least and so it looks like I will have to wait another year to fulfil my dream of a surface forty. In fact I am not sure when I can get down to the lake next but hope to do a bit of fishing when working for Chris and shooting a promotional video soon.

The big news is that the facilities are now befitting the premier syndicate that Fryerning unquestionably is. There is a shower and toilet block under construction which is situated down near the Car Park Lake. Additionally there is now an electronically activated gate complete with six cameras for your peace of mind and security . All in all, Chris and his team are taking things to the next level and as the fish continue to grow, so does its enviable reputation as one of the best big carp waters around.

As ever, there are several impressive catches to mention with surely the most notable being the Gurm caught by Tony Howells. The Queen of the lake was bagged from the Millstone and at a staggering post spawning weight of 47lbs – she is looking sure to top fifty again this winter!

Here’s one for the ladies and it’s nice to welcome Debbie Crouch into the syndicate. We need more women fishing and I think that the peace, security (and flushing toilet!) will appeal to lots of ladies looking for the perfect venue. Debbie wasted no time in getting on the catch report by bagging a superb 34.12 leather. Now that’s one I’d like to catch for sure!

Carp catching machine Joe Morgan from Carp TV turned up for his first trip this year and managed to walk straight into an empty Lodge swim! Not only that but the wind turned Easterly right on cue – it seems not only do the Carp Gods like Joe but the fish do too and one in particular, the Nunn as he bagged it for the fifth time at 41.4. Joe backed this up with fish of 35 and 26lbs with zigs and a bed of boilies scoring.

The daphnia has been in full bloom this summer as a result of careful management by the team and as a result the fish weights are on the up – it could be a bountiful autumn harvest for some lucky anglers! If you are coming down then remember, these are big boilie munching fish and beds of boilies not only catch the carp but buy you more time against the crays too.

We are coming to the time of year where there will be at least 12 forties and countless thirties – not many places you can target a stock of fish like that!
