Perhaps someone from abbey would like to clarify what the rules are on using boats are to free weeded fish and I was also recommended after being there for six days that they recommend using mainline braid by the baliff didn't say that on the website either perhaps it has been updated now I'm not sure

Don't think you'll be allowed to use boats that early in the year, no need anyway. A pair of chesties is essential though imo. 20kg is more than enough boilies, hemp/red band/maize etc with a bit of something yellow on the hook I've never needed an echo sounder.
Love the place, shame is so expensive now

Me and 2 others are considering a february trip out there.

We've fished Atilla twice now, mainly because we've had it to ourselves.
We've had some good fish out of there and seen some very big fish , abit under rated in my opinion.

We fancy the last week of february though for 4 days on fox dependant on how busy it is...angling against 6 others with bait boats out constatly which i saw when i was there a few weeks ago isnt angling in my book.
FFS, it was a 50 yard chuck to where they were fishing.

Lovely complex, Rupert lets you get on with things....and its close to calais.
Will probably see you in Feb Rupert for the third time in less than 6 months LOL.

Sounds like it could be worth packing the van and getting oneself off to Abbey....

Hi Rupert.......the Fox is certainly the one to watch for 50's......I've seen many commons during the spawning ritual in the top bay 2010 that were pushing and beyond 50lbs barrier......can't wait to get back out there.......say hello to Seb, Yvellene and the Team from me

Most of the 40's came from Heron, surprisingly 10 of the 50's were from Fox which indicates we've massively underestimated the current sizes of the Carp in there as we thought there were probably somewhere in the region of 15 in the lake and it would be a bit unlikely that they'd all get caught in the same 4 day spell?! This can only be good for the future as we reckon there are around 350-400 40lb+ carp in Fox and if the uppers all start to push on then god knows how many 50's the lake will hold come this time next year or by the spring of 2013?!

PS I have just had another one from peg 6 but fell in while netting it which is why I'm online now, drying out in the Clubhouse!!
