Croxley Hall Carp Syndicate is professionally run carp
fishing syndicate located on a private estate at Croxley
Hall Fisheries, near Rickmansworth in Hertfordshire.
Members of Croxley Hall Carp Syndicate enjoy exclusive
carp fishing on Croxley Lake, a mature ten acre gravel
pit which was dug over thirty five years ago and still
contains some of the original mirror carp. Around two
hundred carp are present, the majority being "Croxley"
commons weighing between thirty and forty three pounds that were stocked in 1996 at an average weight of two pounds. In 2004 a further twenty "Leney" carp were stocked around seven pounds in weight, these fish now weigh twenty pounds plus with a few over thirty pounds. Most of the Leney carp are mirrors. In 2007 thirty three mirror carp from the "Dinton Pastures" strain were stocked, some of these fish are already into double figures and could potentially outgrow everything in these rich lakes.
During the summer months multiple catches are quite common with most fish weighing over thirty pounds and many weighing thirty five pounds plus. The growth rates of the carp are monitored closely in the best interests of the fishery and its members.
