Spotfish - Where to fish in the UK

Wood Lakes

Report Woodlakes or wood lakes, no obfuscation here please.

Session rating 3 out of 5

I’m about half way into the first day and although the write up on Spot Fish for this cosy log cabin based holiday fishery, which suggests abundance they are far from feeding prolific today. 

I am not one to get too hung up on what I might be doing wrong and often seek explanations from all angles. No pun there but where are the carp? It seems a very quiet fishery with very few shared reviews across the internet and that you have to wonder why not? 

The venue is suitably equipped with good swims on the cabin lake. The rest of the venue I have not yet explored but from Facebook the championship lake appears positively.

I will write again soon as it’s too early to be critical but almost certainly a chod rig feels like a decision that would provide a change of tactic on a lake that may have seen far too many traditional rigs if indeed the venue over the past 50 years has actively provided sport for those who came before us.
