Wiggs Farm – “Back Pond”


Venue location only available for fully paid members

General description

A “silvers only” pond… this venue is a water for those who would rather give gear-bashing carp a wide berth.

Some absolutely stonking Roach (1.5lb+), Bream (2lb-4lb), Tench and Crucians make up the majority of catches with Perch and Rudd being present also.

We moved a lot(!) of quality silvers out of the “Big Pond” (Carp lake) at Wiggs over to this Back Pond where those folks who want to target quality Roach etc can have a real red letter day when it’s on form.

Quite a consistent depth all the way round… there’s the odd shelf and hole here and there but some swims are as flat as a snooker table! Great for matches and lazy anglers who only want to tie one rig. 😉

We had some juvenile Crucians, Bream and Tench delivered by the Environment Agency in the winter of the 2019/2020 season – these wee beauties, along with a brand new peg re-fit all the way round the pond has already seen a fair few folks enjoying their session on the Back Pond at Wiggs.

A nice venue to get a decent bag of mixed silvers from when you fancy something different from the usual “carp carp carp” of modern day commercial fisheries.
