Stocked in 2003 with 2,500 prime carp to 18lb from British Waterways' bagging Mecca, Drayton Reservoir, Thorpe Lea has already proved itself to be a spectacular fishery and the carp are packing on the weight fast with four 30lb fish already reported. Bottom baits, floaters, zig rigs, method feeders, bagging wagglers and even the fly all scored in 2004 with non-stop action and mega hauls of carp.
