virtually guaranteed to catch a fish.

If you like night fishing try our Carp runs pool you won’t get much sleep and if you hook into one of our giant  catfish on one of the Specimen lakes you may not need a bigger boat but you will need a bigger net  Our match waters are second to none with lakes, 15m and 30 meter Canals the match lakes are available for clubs  we also run regular open Matches, these venues produce some unbelievable weights . Finally yet importantly, you can fish on the World Famous Arena Lake stocked with Barbel Carp Bream Tench, Crucian Carp, and Roach.We opened  the National School of Angling in 2011 at Cudmore to introduce as many adults/Juniors as possible into the sport of fishing .There are fully qualified professional coaches available at all times. When C M Brewster designed the fishery layout, it was also specifically designed for TV, and Angling Shows. Now annually in July we hold the Fish-O-Mania Final and the Home Internationals, which is televised over 12 hr. and over the same weekend as The Great Northern Fishing Show. We also have an extensive onsite Tackle Shop (Stapeley Angling Centre) and on site catering.
