Bardford Lakes, Norwich
One of the most popular privately-owned still water coarse fisheries in East Anglia, Barford Lakes are about 7 miles West of Norwich, in Norfolk. The fishery offers a range of sport to suit pleasure, match and intermediate carp anglers and has been featured in many angling magazines and on ‘Sky’ Television’s ‘Tight Lines’ programme and Discovery’s ‘Carp Crew 2’.
Pleasure catches of more than 100lbs are common and some have been known to break the 200lb mark.
The fishery was started just over 15 years ago and since then has developed into a popular match and pleasure venue. Barford Lakes offer two pleasure day-ticket lakes, a training lake (which is only charged at £2.50 for beginners) and a 30 peg match water on the main site, as well as 4 other match lakes nearby.
