Farlows Lake Two, Iver

The lake serves as an ideal leisure water with action aplenty as these young naive carp have in many cases never seen a hook.

Simple tactics work very well, boilies and carp pellets being the going method.

Be ready for a sleepless night as large hauls of fish are common place on Lake 2. 






Try fishing solid PVA bags full of pellets complete with bright hook baits.

- James Armstrong

There are many features in the lake and the plateau on the river bank seems to produce consistently all -year round. Try fishing solid PVA bags full of pellets complete with bright hook baits – yellow or pink working well. 

This water holds Pike, Perch, Roach, Bream, Tench and Eels. The Pike have been caught to well over 25lbs and they offer excellent sport through the winter. 

When the channel was put in many Carp where trapped in the match lake and these have been landed up to 36lbs.

In addition to the original stock, 400 Carp weighing between 5lbs and 18.5lbs were added to the lake in 2013 followed by another 20 Carp weighing 13lbs – 17lbs from VS Fisheries. The total Carp stock is estimated to be 500 plus.

Jimmy began his angling on the river Ouse with his father fishing for roach. His passion grew quickly and soon developed a love for big-fish across the globe!
