The Lakes at Pondwood
The Lakes at Pondwood
The history surrounding Pondwood fishery dates back to 1660. Lake 1 was historically a duck flight pond where the farmer at that time would poke his gun outside the door and bag a duck or goose for dinner. These flight ponds were a part of life for farmers and farm workers as the market was often a long walk or cart ride away and the livestock of chickens etc. for dinner could become a bit mundane.
Over the coming Winter we will be continuing with the revamp of Lake 2. Also we will be revamping the Woodland lake, filling in the channel that always created an imbalance and making new swims. This will then be stocked with multi species as with the Snake and used for additional match angling.
Winter 2017 - Spring 2018
A huge amount of work was undertaken last winter and spring on a complete drain down and restock of the Snake Water. Thankfully it is now back to all its former beauty and is hosting some great fishing matches.
The café is new and equipped with state of the art equipment and facilities. There will be a range of food throughout the day that may change from time to time depending on circumstances. Please see the menu of the day as displayed in the café. Although the café has its own car park this is not for long term parking so please use the car park as applicable to your circumstances.
NEW TOILET FACILITIES:
The toilets have been newly constructed for your convenience. These are cleaned on a regular basis but there will always be a time when one or more of the toilets or facilities have been abused or just visited by someone who was not feeling too well. If this is the case and we have not yet been aware of this, please let us know so we can rectify the situation.
OPEN MATCH DATES:
Open match dates will be displayed as far forward as possible but should this not be the case for whatever reason then Facebook will no doubt display them being a fast-responsive way to inform.

Josh has just started a library of YouTube films that are both entertaining and informative. If you would like to subscribe to his films just click subscribe on any of his works on YouTube and the rest is automatic. The films are not just about fishing but other aspects of the sport and water management such as commercial aeration systems and bridge building and much more. Obviously, this will not happen overnight as it is an ongoing development.
