FISHING LAKES

We have 13 lakes and ponds in total (7 Dayticket Coarse lakes & 2 trout lakes and a further 4 exclusive Coarse lakes and ponds) covering some 18 acres laid out as follows:-. There is a main complex of 4 lakes which are stocked extensively with 18 spieces of fish. 5 types of carp to 30lb+. Roach, Rudd, Bream, Tench, Chub, Dace, Perch e.t.c all to specimen sizes. These lakes are available for day ticket and night fishing.

There is then a further 2 lakes on adjoining property. The bottom of these is stocked with Pike of various sizes and a few very large carp to 30lb+ which in this lake have a reputation of being challenging to catch also a few rudd and tench and very big Bream. The top lake is stocked very heavily with carp to double figures, Huge Crucian carp, Roach and Bream. This lake regularly produces bags of fish to 200lb+ during the summer months and a pleasure bag record was set summer 2006 with over 400lb in a 10hour sesion. There are also a few large Pike in here as well. These 2 lakes are available for day ticket fishing but there is no night fishing allowed on these 2 waters

We then have 3 further waters for the exlusive use of our holidaying residents and our season ticket holders. At the very top end of our property we have a water called the 'Old Stock Pond' and just above this a tiny unamed water but stuffed with all sorts. There is then a further water in our camping field called 'Trendles' which in the last 5 years since being built has been enlarged further on 3 occasions and is now double its original size and is stocked heavily with carp 1-7lb as well as small tench and a few silvers and as well as popular with residents we also rent this out for match bookings and private or corporate bookings are welcome.

See what our customers say:-

Hi Jason i just wanted to say what a great time I had staying at the fishery last week. I have fished revels on and off for quite a few years ( my brother and I even brought season tickets off your mum in 2003...£50.00 then !!! ). The fishery has improved beyond recognition over the years and is a great credit to you and the guys. My caravan was great and had everything I needed. It was also wonderful to walk about in the evenings and look round the lakes when everybody had gone home, such a peaceful place. I also fished a few lakes I had never fished before, and was surprised by not only the diverse species, but the quality. Healthy fish. I have pencilled in the same days for next year but will sort it out a bit nearer the time, when we come over to fish for the day. I also met some very nice people who stay with you regularly,very friendly, who I hope to meet next year. Once again, well done to you all, its a great place to be.
P.S.     Fantastic Eggs !!!!!!
yours Graham Walker

TARRIFS

A day ticket purchased from us entitles you to fish any of the day ticket waters on site we don't believe in charging separate for each lake as we believe if an angler wants to fish our waters then they should be free to choose whichever lake they wish. All our dayticket coarse lakes are easily walkable from the shop and car park and you do not have to drive to the different coarse lakes.


REVELS TACKLE SHOP We are the main Dealers for Middy, Maver and Browning Tackle for the Dorset area

On site is an extensively stocked 1000ft² tackle shop stocked with a vast aray of gear catering for all branches of angling from Coarse, Sea, Game and Specialist tackle. Every corner of the shop is packed with rods, reels, bags, nets, accessories and much more. We also keep a huge array of baits for Coarse and Sea fishing including maggots and live ragworm and lugworm. We are open every day from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. (3.30pm Sundays) later if we are about in the summer months. We are always monitoring the tackle trade for surplus or clearance stock so bargains are always available. And we pride ourselves in tracking down the more unusual items ideal presants for the angler who has everything.

We are always taking part in stock clearences either direct from the wholesalers or from other outlets that have closed down and we are always carrying a huge range of one off bargains sometimes upto 70%+ off RRP
