Home Farm Fishery
The lakes at HFF were established in 1988 and began life as a commercial fish farm. The emphasis then was the breeding of exotic carp - kois, Golden Orphe etc. Many of the original fish can still be found in the two main lakes.
In the year 2000 the lakes were bought by the present owner and the day ticket business which we see today was founded.
All matches and reservations for night fishing should be booked directly on 07713 886654.
In 2003 it was decided to introduce Wells catfish to the specimen lake. These would compliment the extensive carp stock. Following the purchase of catfish stock from Burton Mere the record catfish now stands at 59lb 6oz with larger weights expected soon which is testament to the water quality and gives a growth rate of over 4lb per year. The carp strains are - common, mirror, ghost and grass carp. The current carp record is a 28lb 6oz mirror caught in 2007. There are well over 150 double-figure carp and many more of 20lb and over. There are also many large Perch, the largest so far weighing in at 4lb 12oz.
Each year has seen vast improvements. There has been an extensive annual restocking of quality fish and a major replanting programme of aquatic and land based plants, which gives the site its present day picture postcard appearance.
