Teardrops Two, Milton Keynes

Teardrops Two is a pretty, tree-lined pond with features aplenty.

There is a decent head of carp in the lake, to over 30lb.

The lake funnels into a narrower section with dense overhanging trees that the carp frequent, particularly when it’s warm.

Margins,  small traps, stalking and surface fishing can throw up a bonus fish

- James Armstrong

Teardrops lake 2 is a more prolific water with more fish to go at on the complex.

There are some good sized fish to go for including a common which goes between 28 to low 30 depending on time of year.

The average size is mid to upper double.

Tactics are similar to lake 1 – margins, small traps, stalking and surface fishing can throw up a bonus fish or two.


Jimmy began his angling on the river Ouse with his father fishing for roach. His passion grew quickly and developed into an out and out specimen hunter.
