For the last year or two, carp known to be in the Bridge Pond have been conspicuous by their absence, so much so that anglers were begining to wonder if we’d lost them and as a result some new blood was introduced. And then out of the blue those once small stockies started to reappear with fish of 4 to 7lbs being caught, and a number of fish to double figures being seen. There were also reports of anglers losing hugh tench. Now just to prove the point Phil Bingham has caught one weighing 15lbs 4ozs. Well done Phil!
