The club are pleased to announce three new waters on the Manley Old Hall Fishery. We have shared access to the pools commencing 1st June, fishing from 7.00am till 9.00pm summer months then 7.00am till dusk winter. No night fishing allowed.
Although Manley Old Hall is run as a commercial fishery the waters have a more natural feel to them and are situated in picturesque Cheshire countryside, the only thing in common with your normal commercial set-up is the fish stocks. All three pools have mixed species with carp, tench, crucians, roach, rudd, bream, and perch in all three pools with the added bonus of chub in Cherry Pool. Each pool houses some surprises with the odd 20lb carp present.
There is good access to the waters with several areas were parking behind the pegs is allowed.
The top pool is called Black Poplars, this water is 200 years old and originally a house stood were the pool is now situated. This is the shallowest of the three pools with the average depth 4′ 6″ and has 26 pegs. There is a large head of tench and crucian carp plus plenty of silver fish and is also home to the fisheries biggest known carp.
Cherry Pool is the middle water and also the largest and deepest with depths up to 8′. This pool again has 26 pegs and is heavily stocked with mixed species and also holds the largest head of carp. This is a ideal match water and the club is allowed to hold matches on all the waters with a additional £5.00 pegging fee.
The bottom pool Silver Birch is a long canal shape water which is something of a unknown quantity as this water has rarely been fished and is rumoured to hold some big carp. At present there are no man made pegs and fishing is on the bank along the track. This water again has descent depths with 6′ – 7′ in places, with 12m across to the far bank.
The fishery rules are situated on the notice board, it is the responsibility of all members to familiarise themselves with the rules below which will be added to the water specific rules in the clubs map book shortly.
