I've seen loads.
Some good rules there, but the barbless one is the best.

That would probably have been the original big common that went on to be over 50. The 50 common now wart and the 60 Lee Jackson are different fish.

there used to be a document / image hosted on this site that showed the section 30 from when the big common was stocked - pretty sure it was at 30+lbs from holland.

no idea where karlos got it from but it was here for all to see - must have been around 15+ years ago when Dave Lane was fishing the place.

Yeah agreed on the barbless, although the type of lake makes a big difference ie weed snags etc. Helps when people don't try and pull their heads off

Rules seem fine...

Interesting with the barbless rule, I've yet to see a venue where barbless has contributed positively. (although that's perhaps for previously discussed debate somewhere in the archives)

Best to speak to the owner reg rules, but main ones were

No leaders
Barbless Hooks
Rig tubing to be used
Nothing on the line above the rig tube - sinkers etc
No fixed leads
No dropping leads
No oils, korda goo or oily pellet
Large unhooking mat and framed sling needed
Make sure all fins are tucked in before a fish is lifted from the water.

The rules are all in the interest of the fish and nothing is left to chance on that front. I have never seen a fish from there with a ripped mouth etc which talks volumes for the level of fish care. Basically if your line breaks for whatever reason the aim is for that fish to be left with the bare minimum and be able to loose the hook very quickly.

What are the rules? Are they publicised anywhere? Two rods,etc?

I seen a photo of a approx. 6lb fully scaled stocked and it is now nudging 30lb. Seems to have the perfect, healthy environment for the fish to keep growing like they have and continue to do.

I concur with Carpy clarkey. The present stock were either put in at low weights in single figures following being imported from Holland, or spawned in the lake. I believe a few also were bought and stocked a very low single figure weights from British fish farmers. The owner will tell you the history. All carp are imports it's just whether they are first or second generation etc, so all this stuff about wrong uns people talk of is rubbish. Illegal imports and fishing being brought in a huge weights and stocked is another story, but this doesn't apply to strawberry.
Good luck Josh. It's a tricky place but the rewards are awesome. Some of the best looking and conditioned fish I've ever seen. The rules are all about fish protection, which is why the fish are so mint.

The one that went in at 30lb went about 2002, the big common there now grew on from a small weight and the second biggest was spawned in the lake and has grown on from there. The big scaley mirror thats 46lb was from a local fish farmer and has grown from single figures.

The import arguement is an interesting one, after all leneys were imported from Poland and the kent riverboard fish were from holland or belgium

I can remember the controversy over the origins of the stock, like a few other waters at the time.
The thing is, all carp were imported originally, and as far as i know the SF fish were small when stocked, and have done well for so long, in a pressured environment, so i guess people must draw their own conclusions?

There's no doubt that the fish are lookers, and so big. Apart from that, i know very little about the place?

you're talking ********.

I've seen the scans of the section 30's that showed at least 1 of them imported at 30+ from belguim.

long time members of this site will remember the section 30's were actually posted on here.

it was a fair while back (15+ years I would think) but they were definitely imports - legal ones.

It's the most amazing song ever. For me, it speaks volumes. I feel strawberry fields forever is a place in parallel universe that is beautiful peaceful and it has everything that I want. It's a place that would make me forget all pain or make me happy in every possible way. It's an imaginary heaven for me!
