Willows

Opened 2006 Willows is the most recent match lake at Hampton Springs and with 35 pegs and a bridge to the far side it has become a favourite match lake for some of our regular clubs. Although the fish stock is not as mature as in some of our more established pools it has plenty of fish in 2-4lb category. Mirror and common carp to 5lbs, plenty of chub and barbel to 4lbs, bream to 1.5lb, crucians and tench to a 1lb.

Two islands run the length of the lake and therefore from most pegs poles can reach and fish to the edge of the islands. Caster, chopped worm, pellet, sweetcorn and luncheon meat, fishing either to the island or in the margins or under and close to bridge give some good match bags.
