New Stock.

Posted by Richard on November 24, 2016 at 5:45 AM Comments comments (0)


White Springs has again added some new residents to the Specimen Lake. They have introduced nine new thirties from the same supplier who has given us such beauties as the Turk, Bruno, Warrior, Big Jaffa, Hob Nob and Cheryl to name but a few.


The introduction of three Commons and six Mirrors have, yet again, added to the already well stocked Specimen Lake.


All fish were in pristine condition and have never been fished for before and if like the other stock they will be hard fighting.


Here at White Springs their policy to be the best fishery in the Uk has certainly taken an up turn with these new residents.


Here we have all weights and pictures of the new specimens that will make the lake one of the most fished here in Wales.


Many thanks to the staff at White Springs for their continued dedication to make our specimen angling as good as anything throughout the country.


31lb Common.



32lb Mirror.



37lb Mirror.

All fish have yet to be named, so if you fancy your chances. Contact the fishery to book your place on the Specimen lake immediately.

Exclusive. Pods the introduction.

White Springs, over the past three years has become one of the most forward thinking fisheries of its kind. If not, just in Wales, but throughout the UK.


From a restocking policy to bring the Specimen and Big Pit lakes to a standard of angling that can compete with any carp lake throughout the land.


An introduction of gravel bars to the lakes to provide a safer environment for its residents and to keep stocks in pristine condition.


Another is the use of carp cradles only, also to protect the fine specimens that our lakes hold.


These are only some of the examples of how well the lakes are being run here at White Springs.


The stock that the lakes hold will always be the fisheries priority but so are our anglers, who keep returning for the fantastic sport that we strive to provide here at White Springs.


This is why we are now proud to announce the first look at our new lakeside pods which will eventually and in time be provided to every swim on the Specimen Lake.




We have also sited one of our pods on our ever increasing in popularity Big Pit Lake, which in future will have more pods placed in the more popular swims on the lake.



These state of the art pods provide everything for the Tech minded carp anglers that we have now become, with the introduction of smart phones and tablets to the already large amounts of tackle that we carry.





These pods are here to aid us, as well as shelter us from the elements.


Once complete, the pods will provide a kitchen cupboard and work station with microwave and fridge freezer for baits and food alike.




They provide an environmentally friendly look and feel about them. Apart from their ergonomic design. They are fully insulated to keep you warm in winter and even better, cool in the summer from them long hot hazy days.




Eventually with their anatomic shape these pods will blend into the fisheries environment without them being noticed.


Each pod can hold two anglers and their equipment with ease and still you would have enough room to bring a guest.






Also a parking place in situ with the pods will also be an added feature.




Power is provided in each pod with plenty of lighting and power points with USB ports should you forget that charger or power pack.



A television aerial and socket is also provided so that you can tune into your favourite TV shows on the long cold winter nights when bites become less frequent.




The pods are also fully draught proof with upvc doors and windows, so once you have heated your pod, the only time you will lose the internal heat is when you’re up and running out the door for that screaming buzzer.




Again the fishery has come up trumps with the introduction of these pods.


Gone will be the days of all your kit soaking wet and half your bivvy blown across the lake when having to set up in the wind and rain.




Now comfort is our main aim for our anglers and an already psychological edge that you will have, knowing that your 24, 48 or how ever long you decide to stay on the bank will not be blighted by whatever the elements might throw at us.


White Spring’s innovation has again excelled and has brought carp angling into the 21st century. Modern day angling for the modern day anglers.


Please contact the fishery for more information on the availability of the new pods or our other cabins.

And until next time, tight lines and all.

Can anyone tell me which are the better lakes and pegs for catching nice Tench,and what are the best methods and tactics on Whitesprings to catch them ?

I usually use the good old fashioned trusty Lift Float Rig with either a bunch of small redworm or a Lobs tail over chopped worm and Hemp,sometimes Caster over Hemp and Corn but i just cant seem to get them,tho it catches the Carp amongst others i really want to get to the Tench,any Tips or tricks for these beautiful fish would be gratefully appreciated,Tench season is almost upon us and next month is the best time to start fishing for them.

So come on guys,any Tench fishermen out there give us your tips..
