Broadoak Fisheries has been created to offer experienced carp anglers the chance to fish two breathtakingly beautiful waters, Eridge Park and Sheffield Park, which both contain fast growing English carp. The two lakes are run on a syndicate basis and are both located in areas of outstanding natural beauty in East Sussex.
A new water, Furnace Pond, will also be available in 2005. This lake is four acres in size and is situated very close to Eridge Park Lake. All the above lakes are stocked with fish of outstanding quality and an ongoing stocking policy is in place using only Mark Simmonds carp.
Eridge Park is a 6,000-acre private Estate on the Kent/Sussex border. Syndicate members have exclusive access to the lake with secure parking and private facilities within 100 yards of the lake. The water is very rich in natural food and provides a superb environment in which to grow large and healthy carp. The lake has had much of its original stock of tench removed in March 2000 and 2004 to remove all unwanted fish.
The fish first stocked in 2000 between 10 and 14 pounds are now twenties. A further 24 twenties were stocked that year which are now approaching the thirty pound mark. In 2003 six 25lb plus commons and mirrors were added, with further stockings taking place in 2004.
Sheffield Park Gardens is a National Trust property situated on the borders of East and West Sussex. The site consists of 120 acres of superb grounds landscaped in the 18th Century by Lancelot Capability Brown. The unrivalled collection of mature specimen trees and the spectacular early summer displays of rhododendrons and azaleas form a magnificent backdrop to the four lakes at the heart of the gardens.
The fishery consists of two main lakes, the Upper Woman's Way Pond and the Lower Woman's Way Pond. These two connected lakes were created by damming a tributary of the Sussex Ouse, ensuring a plentiful supply of cool oxygenated water throughout the year. The lake contains a good head of original Leney carp from upper doubles to high twenties. These carp are some of the best looking linear and common carp ever seen.
