Bookable swims on The Big Lake.

Peg 31

Winter 24 hours £40
Summer 24 hours £50
big lake  peg 31
(The above prices are based on 2 anglers)
This double swim has been extended to be more spacious and it’s produced well all year round including Summer and Winter months.  Located near to all amenities, not far from the shop and next door to the café, this peg also has portable toilets off the road directly behind it.  It has been a welcome addition to our bookable swims and so far has proved popular with all anglers, especially those travelling long distances or with mobility problems.

The depth of water in peg 31 averages around 7ft. This is a double swim which gives the angler to the right of the peg, the opportunity to fish Peg 32’s water, which is now shut.   

There is plenty of gravel throughout this swim and there is no need to cast past the 70-yard limit.

(The above prices are based on 2 anglers)
Spacious double 3 rods each but also suits up to 3 anglers with 2 rods each. 
If you’re travelling a long distance and want to ensure a place on the Big Lake we’ve opened this swim up as a bookable peg.  The Flag Pole is situated on a small headland in the popular, more shallow area of the big lake.

It has a secluded walkway down to the swim and is ideal for families and fishing socials.  Because of its spacious swim there’s plenty of room for 3 bivvies with extra room for a barbeque area.
