About Manor Pool

Manor Pool in Shropshire is a small but great fishing spot where you can have a fun time catching fish. There are some rules to follow, like not using keepnets, boilies, or groundbait, but you can use maggots and bread which work really well.

The pool is 150 feet long and 60 feet wide, and it’s full of Mirrors and Commons carp weighing up to 20 pounds. I once almost caught a big one, but it got away. There are also lots of carp weighing around 5 to 6 pounds, and smaller ones weighing 1 to 2 pounds that are good fighters.

Besides carp, you can also find Tench weighing up to 5 pounds, and sometimes hybrids, roach, and small bream. While I was there, I focused on catching carp, but other anglers have had success with these other species too.

During one 12-hour fishing trip starting at 9 am, I caught about 30 pounds of fish using strawberry pellets and bread. I wish I had some maggots, but the closest tackle shop is in Bridgnorth, which is about a 20-mile drive away.

Overall, Manor Pool is a great place to fish with lots of different types of fish to catch and different ways to catch them.
