The Monument

The name "The Monument" is derived from the old relic that is located on a hill overlooking the fishery. It is the remains of an old water windmill. I had been searching Shropshire for a few years, trying to find the ideal location to create a purpose built day ticket carp fishery. As I think you will agree if you visit "The Monument" this site has everything. Download videos of the various TV programs filmed during the development of The Monument: Part1, Part2, Part3, Part4 The pictures showing the valley before work commenced and the two natural spring fed pools already on site. These are now the water source for the main lake with the spring pools being used as stock pools to grow young fish on site. The creation of the lake commenced in Nov '02 with the work being carried out by A.P. Hall & Son, Contact Tel. No. 07860 560 032, who specialize in this kind of work. The lake was completed in January ’03, after which the features were constructed on the lakebed to make “The Monument” a very interesting water to fish. As you can see from the photo the features are substantial in size and will make life very interesting for both the anglers and the fish. The fish were stocked in February/March ’03 and are being fed quantities of pellet to maximise their weights prior to opening. The lake is 9 acres in size and has 15 swims. The monument has been created to offer excellent carp fishing in pleasant surroundings to everyone. I hope you visit us and enjoy fishing “The Monument

 

Advice and Tips

1. The Monument Carp are now clever fish so don’t think you can just roll up and catch them

2. Look at the underwater features in the fishery office so you know your swim

3. The bottom is clay so camou your rigs to suit

4. Bait – get on the going boilie and keep trying something different, prawns, sweetcorn, maize, large pellets – they all catch

5. Keep your casting to a minimum and back lead to put the lines on the bottom

6. Keep quiet and sit back

7. Feed the swim 2 or 3 times per day to keep fresh bait going in

 

Fact File

The Monument in terms of a fishery is nothing short of phenomenal. The growth and condition of the fish is incredible with many fish growing in weight by up to 7lb last season.

 

The Monument as of today has over 300 fish of which 294 are original stock that are still only 8 years old. Now we also have an unknown quantity of magnificent 3 year old fish weighing between 8lb-16lb, these are mainly deep bodied commons. My guess is there are at least 40 of these young fish present.

 

The Monument holds: -

30 x doubles

200 x 20’s.

Over 60 x 30’s up to 39lb

At least 5 x 40’s up to the lake record of 49lb known as ‘The Pet’ although I believe the fish known as the Scattered Linear will be our first 50! This fish was 31lb 2 yrs ago and reached 46lb-10oz in April 2007.

 

The average weight during the Spring of 2007 was approx 24-00lb. The potential of The Monument is incredible! See the fish in the picture gallery.
