Nice video
Stunning venue if you like the unknown, and have the money, and plenty of time to graft at it.

The ability to night fish, fish a long session, fish previously unfishable areas etc etc and they had one 30?

I think you can assume that 1,000 is a lot of money for a water that does not give up her (crown) jewels easily.

Obelisk has been well fished and is pretty much a known quantity wrt the stock etc.

VW is a completely different thing. Not least because it is about 300 acres (I think) and you have previously only been able to fish about 1/3 of it.

No mate. It sounds awesome.
I thought it had been well fished in the past and the bigger carp were known? I suppose with a water like that anything is possible though.....

Yonny have you ever walked around the place? It's got a feel to it like no other lake I've been too! It could easily throw up big uncaught carp, record pike, bream, roach or perch. It's an amazing water but for someone to reap the rewards a lot of hard graft would be needed!

I don't know about that but it is mentioned in one of Chris Ball's books. A 26lb carp was found dead there in 1926 so it certainly has history!

Does anyone know if it's true this place was stocked with fish from Donald Leney in the 50's?

Definitely VW as Obelisk gets a separate mention. Fished it many years ago on a feeder and caught well, bream and wildies at c.4lb. If I still lived in the area I would definitely consider joining

Given that they're opening it up as a syndicate I'm very surprised they didn't name the venue. Was it VW or Obelisk?

I'd be really interested to see that too. I know they had opened up the north bank last season to a select few in order to try and assess the stock.
