Famous Five - Poplars Lake - Our Regulars!

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

Long time regular visitors Mr and Mrs Andy and Paddy O'Brien are from Wigan, Greater Manchester.

For the first few years they stuck to Orchard Lake and Eagle Lake and Peter's Pool. However a couple of years ago the weeks they wanted on these were not available and we suggested Poplars Lake as an alternative which they had never fished.

They gave it a go and fell in love with the place! They have had numerous carp and cats with Paddy often outfishing Andy and they enjoy the convenience of the lakeside mobile home which you can fish from if you like.

In 2016 on their last visit Andy was fortunate enough to catch no less than three personal bests from three different waters. Firstly, he had a pb Wels' of 70lb from Poplars, then he stalked a pb common of 33lbs from Peter's Pool, then a 40lb mirror from Eagle Lake!

For 2017 they are coming out for four weeks with a week on Orchard and three weeks on their favourite Poplars Lake!

Famous Five - Eagle Lake & Peters Pool - Our Regulars!

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

We have always had a lot of clients from the North West of England.

This is probably because complex owner Paul has strong links with that area. He was North West Regional Organiser for the Carp Society for many years and his North West Diary was a regular feature in Carp-Talk for almost a decade.

The Atherton's are from Wigan and consist of dad Peter, son Ben and occasional other son Will. They have been coming for a number of years and we have seen Ben grow from a young lad into a  man. The Atherton's are quite competitive, always striving to oudue each other. Wind-ups are the order of the day!

In recent years they have grown very fond of Eagle and Peter's from which they have caught some great carp and cats.

They are out again on Eagle and Peters in July 2017.
