ticket on weekdays with about ten
members, and the lake is available for
exclusive booking over the weekend,
Friday to Monday. There is a well built
station that holds a few unhooking
mats/cradles and landing nets,
provided in case you have forgotten
yours or should you decide to do a bit
of stalking around the lake. A few
barrows are there for anglers’ use, plus
small BBQ and small fire pit that can be
used on cold nights and social
The lake has a padlocked gate
leading into a small gravel car park (the
code will be issued at time of booking),
big enough for four cars. The car park
also houses an ‘I’m a celebrity, get me
out of here’ style eco toilet – much
better than a Portaloo in our opinion!
Once you are unpacked, you enter the
lake via a secure gate in the electric
otter fence, so please keep it closed at
all times.
Our time at Coombe Lake was a
successful one, with Kevin managing to
catch two carp, a beautiful 14lb 8oz
mirror and a smaller well-presented
mirror with lovely colouring, both
seemingly banked for the first time
judging by how soft and perfect their
mouths were. When showing Jonathan
our images, he then confirmed neither
had been caught before, and both had
put on weight from stocking, which is
great news, and we are sure it won’t be
long before Coombe is home to a
stunning 30lb carp or two.
This water is already well worth a visit
and a challenge awaits for any angler,
and with the way Jonathan is working to
further his fishery, plus with the growth
of his fish, Coombe will be drawing you
back for a visit time after time.
Hopefully we can get to go back in the
near future.
