F1’s and carp proving popular stocking choice

November 27th, 2014

This year we have seen a high demand for our F1’s which are proving a popular choice for stocking into match waters.  Their ability to feed all year round has been a major factor in this with the float going under even in the winter months. Stockings that we did last year to club waters have reported improved catches throughout the summer and also into the autumn.

The growth rate of our stocks this year have been impressive and we have plenty of 6-8″ and 8-10″ for sale.  Will is delivering to both club and commercial fisheries all over the country.

Application to register a fishery CEFAS form

November 25th, 2013

In order to stock a fishery, lake or club water most need to be registered by CEFAS which involves completing the appropriate form  This is a relatively straightforward process and usually the registration number for the stock waters is obtained within 2 weeks.  This number is needed for the Environment Agency application form for stocking coarse fish.
