The new arrivals at Revesby Estate are currently residing in special ‘growing on’ ponds. They will be transferred to the main fishing lake once they hit their target weight.

Revesby Estate fisheries manager Tom Winspear, said: “Our mission is to give our members the perfect fishing experience and our restocking programme allows us to do just that.

“One of the main aims of recreational fishing is to catch the biggest fish possible and, by using our ‘growing on’ ponds to grow the fish up to size, we are able to stock the main reservoir up with lots of big fish for members to enjoy!”

He added: “We look forward to seeing our 200 new carp grow and hopefully we’ll see our members catching some record-breaking fish in the near future!”
