We have recently renewed our fishing rights on Tiddenfoot and have also started a carp stocking programme. During December 2021 20 new VS Fisheries mirror carp were stocked, from 10lb to 16lb. We will be continuing to introduce new carp at the end of 2022. Tiddenfoot is already one the the top specimen waters in the area, if not the whole country. With carp to 46lb, four different forty pound carp and many 20 and 30lb fish, the night pass offers excellent value. That is without reminding our anglers that Tiddenfoot is one of the top catfish waters in the country with fish to 92lb, probably larger. There are good stocks of fish in the 40lb to 70lb range. Just to add the icing to the cake the lake offers our anglers the opportunity to catch quality tench to 13lb and bream to 16lb.

The lake  is waking up at the moment with anglers fishing and catching. Carp to 41lb have been recently caught, with fish in the twenties and thirties being caught. Catfish to 86lb have been caught, with fish in the sixty and seventy pound range also showing. Now the water is warming it is expected that both the carp and catfish will feed with more enthusiasm.
Fish stocking

Recently, December 2021, we stocked 20 new carp from 10lb to 17lb. These fish will add to the impressive carp stocks. The fish were supplied by VS Fisheries. They are fast growing and beautifully patterned. If you catch one of these lovely VS carp please weigh it carefully and return it quickly. Keep us informed of the weight of any VS fish you catch.

If you have a Tiddenfoot night pass ensure that it has a passport style photograph firmly attached and also you have signed the night pass. You must also have your club membership book available for our bailiffs to check. Unsigned books and night passes are not valid membership documents.
