Small coarse fish needed for stocking Wirral pond

Postby fish41 » Sun Nov 18, 2007 11:18 pm

Our small fishing club (3 small wirral ponds) suffered an algal bloom on one of our ponds this year (first time ive experienced this in almost 20 years of fishing the pond). Spoke to EA and they put it down to one of 3 reasons 1) weather conditions and water level this year 2) fertilizer from farmers field 2) increase in nutrients due to some bullrush clearance we carried out in spring.
We lost all or most of our fish roach, perch and possibly a few crucians but a long lost carp reappeared.
Looking for help in locating a source for couple of hundred small fish.

Cheers
Rob

what club is this? how do you go about joining?
i used to be in the irby club but they've rapped up so i'm looking for a new club.
i don't know if you of damhead lane in willaston, but the paddock of land with the pond in was sold a few months back, i'm not sure what's happening with the pond but there's a big "no fishing" sign now. it could be worth approaching the farmer to see what the score is. the pond is absolutely stuffed with small stuff, but there's also big carp, tench and bream in there and also about a dozen grassies, which is very rare nowadays.

remember if you undertake any fish moving you'll need a permit from the EA and i think a bill of health too.
if you got caught without them then the club would most likely fold under the fines.
my dad is in the "rookery" angling club (part of the irby working mens club) and they recently looked at purchasing from Hamptn Springs.

Thanks guys for help. The EA are ok about stocking if it is an enclosed pond/lake without any water courses running into it. You then only need a section 30 consent form which is free. The health check stuff and heavy fines come if you try to introduce stuff into water which is either running or has streams running into or out of it.

Will give Hampton Springs a buzz.
