Looking for a new place to go around the birmingham surrounding area's .

We normally fish lavender hall or alvechurch fisheries , have tried hollyhurst lakes and barston . Any other places ? we like to fish boilies and have two rods , some places are restrictive in terms of rules and dont allow bolies or two rods . Looking to beat personal bests of 20.5lb , any help would be great , ta

Hi Laura,

Couple of thoughts, you could try Hopsford Hall near Ansty Coventry (not far from Hollyhurst Lakes) or you could try Bishops Bowl near Southam, bit more of a trek but well worth it. Both places you can fish up to 3 rods, no bait restrictions and both would give you a good chance of a new pb, both can be found on the internet, both get busy at weekends if you can get during the week its better. Oh and both have toilets :)

as i fish around the worcester area if that is not too far there are a few decent pools around here :D

 

Apart from Brockamin ( which ain't what all it's cracked up to be) I'd love to know where aswell :shock:

 

Plz don't say ..... Dingle pools, top barn, holt pools, leigh sinton or evesbatch :roll:

Laura, you're spoiled for choice. Try Salford Park, in the shadow of Spaghetti Junction. It's often overlooked and is seldom busy.

 

Kingsbury Water Park has several pools/lakes to go at. Pine Pool holds some very good carp and the park has toilet and cafe facilities.

 

Packington Somers, near Meriden, also has several waters to try and has similar facilities to those at Kingsbury.

 

Take a look at www.fisheries.co.uk as there are several fisheries listed which would probably suit your needs, particularly Hoar Park Fishery near Nuneaton.
