Although a huge venue Bradley's is unusual as far
as large English gravel pits go in that it is a consistently prolific
fishery for the carp angler and general angler alike. The carp population
is in excess of 2500 fish with approximately 40 - 50 of these being
very old original fish (this is a rough estimate).
Bradley's is a clearwater fishery with plenty of gravel
patches. It is rich in life and now that gravel abstraction has
finished is set to become one of the UK's premier carp fisheries.
In terms of other species Bradley's is well known
for its Tench with 100lb + bags still commonplace. Tench are caught
into double figures with a good average size of 4lbs + to be expected.
Roach & Perch can also be caught and during the winter months
the pike angler can expect good sport with large catches commonplace.
Pike fishing is relatively unexploited however now that new bank
space has been created there are many new areas to explore. Pike
tend to hug the drop off. Action can be expected throughout the
day however the first hour of dusk can be particularly rewarding.
