I regularly get asked what’s my plans for the lakes…. 2016 saw us with 13 different 30’s caught, and I estimate another 10, at least, to be around that mark, and 3 fish over 35lb.

The fishing won’t be easy, but the rewards will be worth it, tenfold. A 3.5 acre field on the farm that had a single oak tree at one end of the field. I remember digging my first koi pond on the farm, I spent my first pay packet on a pond liner, a pump and some fish… Much to my parent’s dismay !. +((!+[]+(!![])+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![]+[])+(+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![]+!![]+!![])+(!+[]-(!![]))+(!+[]+(!![])+!![]+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])-[])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![]+!![]+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![]))/+((!+[]+(!![])+!![]+!![]+!![]+[])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![]+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])+!![]+!![])+(!+[]+(!![])-[])+(!+[]-(!! The Carp Syndicate History. It was at this time I dug my first lake, now known as Minepit. The perimeters of the lake and Birchwood house are protected by an otter fence and locked gates at all times. Providing a safe future for our precious stock! We will be here soon Not to copy it, like some people seem to want to do these days, I wanted my own fishery, making my own stamp and mark on the carping world. Members of Bleasby Carp Syndicate enjoy exclusive carp fishing on Long Island, and Willow. Both Long Island and Willow are mature gravel pits. Everyone thought I was mad, and then even madder when a few years later I wanted to dig another.

First it was in my mate’s large fish tanks when we were at school, and then onto small garden ponds. Who we are? Photos Courtesy of our Members and guests to our lakes. Birchwood Syndicate is a 10 acre carp water nestled in 25 acres of private land. I joined the day ticket scene in my early to mid 20’s (now 20 years ago !) My Dream from a very early age was to keep fish.
