Hyde Lane, Buckingham

Hyde Lane is a stunning mature gravel pit.

It is a very private lake located on the outskirts of Buckingham and you rarely see anyone from the public because the fishery is gated and well out of the way.

The fish move a lot on Hyde Lane and keeping your eyes peeled is a must!

- James Armstrong

The lake itself is heavily tree and reed lined, providing large amounts of sanctuary for the carp to explore. Of course, such areas are magnets and make key hotspots for the angler.

The lake is relatively shallow all over meaning that location is generally easy. Look for telltale swirls, bubblers or showers and you are onto a winner. In summer, look to the shallower areas such as the boom section of the main lake car park.

The fish move a lot on Hyde Lane and keeping your eyes peeled is a must, find the fish and your chances are greatly increased as they don’t give themselves away lightly. The lake is a difficult and weedy one so taking the time to find clear spots is time well spent.

There are few nuisance species present; bream, tench but the crayfish can cause issues at certain times of the year.

Hyde fishes best in the early spring and the back end of summer but winter time can throw up a few surprises if you put the effort in, you never know you may have one of the historic Hyde Lane originals in your net.

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!
