Situated in the Northern part of Hampshire at Longparish, Near Andover, Vale Farm Fisheries is a set of three well-stocked commercial lakes, set in idyllic surroundings. Located only five minutes from the A303, these beautifully kept lakes are run by people who are not only fish lovers, but clearly take pride in keeping the lake surroundings tidy and well manicured. The joy of these lakes, are that you can fish within twenty feet of another angler, and not know he’s there. The lakes are stocked with a good head of carp with plenty of doubles, including a Ghostie in the middle lake up to 29 lb. The middle lake has an island that many people tend to lay just off, when actually some of the bigger fish are swimming around the margins. The right hand lake is a bit more secluded but still has plenty of large doubles up to 23lb. This lake also has a good head of Tench and Bream as well a plethora of Rudd should you be looking to go for quantity rather than size. The left hand lake seems to be less fished than the other two but you can regularly see shoals of good sized common, cruising close to the surface.
