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.

Has anyone got the article to scan by any chance? I'll try to it in the local shops but if it's last week I don't know how it'll go!

It is VW in the article (last weeks carp talk) that Simon crow is fishing and has the good fortune to have a couple including a 30

Yeah it must be vw as oil davies has put pictures up recently of a lake that looks to be Vw! So I would say it most definitely is!

No sorry Josh I don't. But it's defiantly in the Windsor area might even be in the grounds of the Castle? Apparently it was being filmed for Nash tackle..

It's bigger than 130 acres, nearer 250/300

Kells, not sure mate, do you have a link or article by any chance?

Is this the same water as recently fished by Simon crow in the windsor area that's opening up as a syndicate??

Hmmmm, does seem a bit steep if the stocking isnt much. I did wonder if it held a few lumps, but to fish for perhaps a handful in 130 acres isnt so appealing.

Its a beautiful place, those reed line banks are amazing. The place is huge.

I don't doubt you at all Josh.

If I lived nearer and had the available time I would also consider joining. I absolutely love the place, to me it was very much fishing the unknown and that was the appeal. Interesting to see that there is no new parking for the syndicate so it's still a hell of a walk to most of the swims at least you know once you get there that you can be on for 3 days rather than the day sessions I have fished on there.

Don't hold me to it but pretty sure it did as two anglers told me.

I think the grand is alright if you fish year round and value your surroundings. I'm half tempted to go for it. 80 a month by direct debit makes it less wounding.

Might have done Josh, I thought the stock was well known in there and went to low 30's but I am probably 5 years out of date on that!

My answer was just about VW, I haven't fished Obelisk.

I thought the obelisk did a 40+ last season?
