he Chronicle Fishing
Team are a group of
like-minded everyday
anglers who love to
fish and share their
experiences, tips and
of course photos.
We all come from different walks of
life, ranging from office boys to burly
builders, but we all share a common
passion for catching carp, hopefully
big carp. We hit the banks come
snow, wind, rain or shine in the hope
that our alarms sound, followed by the
heart racing moments every reader of
this magazine has come to love. From
the humble beginnings of a simple
blog site (, Rob
Maylin and Big Carp have given Team
Chronicle the amazing opportunity to
review day ticket waters. We started
with the quality and well renowned
Churchwood fishery in Brentwood
Churchwood Fishery,
Set in the private grounds of owner
Steve Sands’ back garden, more like a
national park, the exclusive Church-
wood Fisheries boasts three pristine
lakes – two carp waters, Churchwood
and Jenkins, the third being a oneacre catfish lake. Pulling down the
long driveway into the secure car
park, we gave Steve a call to let him
know we had arrived. After exchanging handshakes and some chat we
loaded our gear onto his quad bike
trailer and were ferried down to our
swims, saving us the backbreaking
task of getting our mountain of tackle
to the lakes – well appreciated by all,
we have to admit. On arrival to the
w a t e r s , y o u c a n ’t h e l p b u t b e
impressed by the quality of the well
maintained grounds, neatly trimmed
trees, grass reinforcement matting,
spacious wood chip swims and a
large fisherman’s lodge, which has
been designed with the modern day
carp angler in mind. This includes hot
and cold running water, microwave
oven, fridge, power sockets and a
spotlessly clean toilet and shower.
The shower room is only available for
longer sessions and the key is available on request.
The main feature of the venue is
the beautiful 2.5-acre Churchwood
