Tar Farm Lake No. 8

The Tar Farm Lakes have been a work in progress for many years now, but in recent years we've managed to bring together all the environmental and planning issues, to the point we are at now - where the lakes are completed, planted, the tacks and car parks are in place, the fish are stocked, and the lakes are ready to go. The Tar Farm complex will only be fishable through pre-booking via Catch fishing platform and App https://www.gocatch.fish/ and you will be able to book individual pegs or the whole lake, depending on availability.

Across the whole Tar Farm complex, we have stocked about 2,000 carp, to a value of around £250,000 with the fish ranging from 6lb fish to just over 30lb, so the lakes will provide amazing sport from that start. Lake-8 only has 8 pegs and has been stocked with fewer fish. For this water we decided to stock fewer fish with a bigger average size, with the aim to try and create a real big fish water for years to come. This waters stock is made up of about 240 fish, with at least 160 of these being stocked at 14lb or bigger, this includes a healthy number of twenties to just over 30lb. During test fishing, the complex also produced pike to mid-20's and perch to 3 ½ and we've also seen so very nice roach and rudd. We also seeded the waters with quite a few small tench and crucian carp, which hopefully we'll see at specimen sizes in years to come.

**Important Notice** To get to the Tar Farm Lakes you will need to travel via Cogges Lane, this is a single-track road with limited pacing places and some blind-bends - So PLEASE watch your speed, especially near the residential area of cottages and around the bends. There's no rush to get there, your peg will be pre-booked, and the lakes aren't going anywhere so above all else, makes sure you get there safely! The postcode for the Tar Farm Complex is OX29 5AL.

THERE IS NO CLOSE SEASON ON ANY OF THE LINEAR DAY TICKET OR SYNDICATE WATERS
