Holme Fen Fishery is open for business and taking Lake exclusive bookings for 2021
Holme Fen Fishery is located near the village of Colne on the edge of the Cambridgeshire fen. It has been developed from a recently completed gravel extraction site, being managed by Martin Dawson and Mike Hawes since 2011, both of whom have extensive experience of managing fisheries of this type.
The complex has been purposely designed as a specimen carp, day ticket fishery, where PB’s will be regularly broken. The Meadows is primarily booked as a lake exclusive venue for up to 10 anglers on a weekly basis, Pre-booked sessions are shown as unavailable on the booking system, any remaining slots and Poachers Pool are available for individual bookings of 48, 96 or 144 hours, starting Mon, Wed and Fri. The Meadows is 26 acres in size and currently holds approximately 200 fish, with up to 40 fish over 50lb, 5 over 60 and a current lake record of over 71lb. In addition, Poachers Pool is 4 acres in size and stocked with approx. 120 carp to 38lb, open for group bookings of up to 3 anglers. The 63 acre complex has been extensively landscaped by the owner with conservation in mind. Purposely designed, oversized swims have been built for angler comfort, each designed to provide plenty of water and a host of features to fish to. Norfolk reed, bullrush and lillies have been planted in the margins and island shelves, with hundreds of trees planted around the complex to create a beautiful fishery. All banks have been grassed and a secure fence installed around the whole perimeter for added security. A significant investment has been made on new stock to complement the existing original carp. All fish have been uniquely chipped so we can monitor growth rates, provide accurate details of stock and observe condition. Chipping the fish also provides a valuable security measure should any of the fish be removed and found at other locations (chips cannot be removed or de-activated). A detailed feeding plan has been devised in consultation with Premium Carp Fishing (PCF), to assist the health and growth of the stock, which have responded well and are in excellent condition. We hope you enjoy your stay and catch a PB!
