Aller Lake

Venue Description

Aller is known as a wild Lake, formed many years ago in the heart of the magnificent Filliegh Estate , here in North Devon.

The fishery has been stocked over the years with ‘ fingerlings’ of several species with  the help of the Environmental Agency . These fish have grown on and re-produced to form the lakes  fish stocks.

This is not a commercial / competition type coarse lake . Do not expect  Carp of 25lb, Tench  at 10lbs or  Roach at 3lbs. Nor will a session produce  hundreds of mixed  fish to stuff a keep net.

What we have is back to the 60’s type of fishing. . Not so much equipment that a wheel barrow is needed to transport it all !

Just bring your rod, reel,  line,  and net. . A comfortable seat and bait.  Bread, bread paste, sweet corn , maggots. and luncheon meat will catch all

For you Carp anglers an unhooking mat is mandatory, as are barbless hooks in all cases .
