An acclaimed 6½-acre day-ticket carp lake within a country park with 11 other fishing pools, where modern carp fishing tactics work best
Kingsbury’s acclaimed six-and-a-half acre day-ticket carp water with mirrors and commons to the low 30s and plenty of doubles, Pine Pool is a traditional carp water where modern carp fishing techniques work best.
Never stocked with fish less than 5lbs, Pine is best fished with boilies, trout pellets or trout pellet paste, sweetcorn, luncheon meat and bread crust, flake or floating crust – in fact, just about any bait that catches carp. However, anglers who ring the changes tend to have the most consistent sport and heaviest catch weights.
There are two pegs with concrete platforms suitable for wheelchair access. These pegs can be used by able-bodied anglers but must be vacated if a wheelchair angler arrives and wishes to use the peg.

Stock: Lots of mirrors and commons to low thirties and plenty of doubles
