Stocking

Some of the stocking at the Lay-by Pit in recent years

December 2014

Some 4 to 5 tub loads of Crucian Carp and 5 to 6 tub loads of skimmers were introduced to the pit by Ian Moore and Glenn Shipley on 5 December.

The fish looked healthy and fit and shot off as soon as they were introduced to the water. Not one dead or lethargic fish.
Looks like Ian has found a good supplier!

March 2014

Tom Harbinson provided the 600 small mirror carp up to 10 ounces, and 100 bigger Commons to 5 lbs put in to the pit on 10 March, which it is hoped will eat the weed and colour the water.
