Day ticket carp venue announces plans to create one of country's best syndicates.
The team that runs one of the most successful day ticket carp venues in the country has announced it is also looking to create one of the UK’s best syndicate waters.
Oxfordshire’s Richworth Linear Fisheries has revealed a three year plan of stocking on its Guy Lakes syndicates with the aim of turning it into a venue that will ‘rate amongst the best carp syndicate waters in the country.’
Made up of three lakes - Gaunts, Unity and Yeomans - with a combined 60acreas of fishable water, Guy Lakes has been run as a syndicate for the past 15 years.
Fish stocks in the waters have already been boosted with the introduction of over 400 carp weighing from high single figure to over 30lb over the past couple of year. However, the team, led by Fishery Manager Len Gurd, has now announced that a further 500 fish will be introduced over the next few years to further improve sport on the syndicate.
“Most of the fish we stock come directly from Linear’s own stock waters where they were specifically picked for their size and scale patterns,” said Len.
“We estimate that 150 will go in over winter and 250 more will be stocked over 2012 and 13. To maintain the fishing at the high standards we want to achieve, stocking will also continue on an annual basis whenever necessary.
“I’m more than confident that with our knowledge and expertise the Guy Lakes will rate amongst the best carp syndicate waters in the country. These waters, because of their beautiful setting, have always been my favourite and now with the fish we have and intend to introduce the fishing there will be out of this world,” he added.
The Guy Lakes syndicate has spaces for approximately 200 anglers, with membership lasting a year from the date an individual joins.
Prices will rise over the next three years to cover the growing costs of stocking, extra security and weed prevention. The price for a year’s membership in 2012 will be £475 rising to £625 by the year 2014.
There is currently a short waiting list but the wait to be invited to join can be very short.
