Birds Green Fishery – Essex
Birds Green fishery, at Fyfield in Essex has two carp lakes and one match lake.
There are lots of double figure carp, a number over 20lbs and one or two over 30lbs. There are also nice size tench and Roach.
I find the top lake (the one next to the cafe) has the larger fish, and fishes better than the bottom carp lake. I have never fished the match lake.
Tried and tested baits include boilies, luncheon meat, corn, bread and chum mixers.
Most methods work, and casting close to the islands will produce the best results.
This is a day ticket fishery, but night fishing can be arranged. Barbless hooks only and unhooking mats are required.
From my experiince fishing in Essex, this is where I caught the most double figure carp.
