A Dream Come True Exclusive
’ve been fishing Wraysbury 1
North sporadically since
around 2016 and taken part in
two BCAC finals on there plus
a qualifying round on the
south lake. During that time,
I’ve built up a pretty decent knowledge of the place and a love for the
venue and its stock.
It’s no longer the Wraysbury of old:
the super low stock beast of a water
that saw so many angling legends
grace its banks; but you can’t help
but feel moved when you arrive and
go through the gates. As far as I’m
concerned, it’s still a magical place to
be and the future is definitely bright.
There is a feeling you get at this
place that I’d imagine is matched by
few other waters. It’s an incredibly
beautiful, iconic water and its history
and stock have kept me going for several years now despite not really having enough time to justify the cost of
a ticket.
There is some incredible fishing to
be had here on both the North and
South lakes and the stock put in by
RK is thriving – with a number of
these beautiful fish now pushing the
40lb barrier. Of course, there are several of the older fish still present – the
likes of Jackos, the long Sutton, the
broken-lin, no-name – the list goes
on. Truly incredible carp. Add to this
the amazing facilities laid on by RK
and it just feels like carping paradise
to me. It really is infectious.
I guess this story really begins way
back before I’d even stepped foot on
the place. A friend of mine started
fishing the venue immediately when
it went onto the RK day ticket and
he’d been on and on at me to come
down there. He’d clearly been blown
away by the place and had some suc-
First session 2019.
