    Hi m8.

    Well I live near you in Bilston. There is a really good pool near me called Ladymoor Pool. I fish it often and get some good sport. Most Carp that come out are around the 4 - 5lb bracket. Meat, corn and boilies work well. My PB out of there is 12.5lb Common.
    I hear that someone caught a 26lb one but cannot confirm that.
    There is not too much hassle there as it is a pretty 'open' place.
    There is another pool near me called the Rocket Pool. It's ok if you go with someone but on your own the kids can become a nuisance!
    Moorcroft Nature Reserve is also ok. Plenty of fish in there but big Carp are rare.
    All of the above are free to fish and easy access from the roads.

    You should be able to find all 3 on the web if you need more info just get in touch.

    Parkes Hall also is good for Carp - again free fishing.

    Hi
    I have just took fishing up again and live in the west midlands, I found this link which may help us....Have been to Dayhouse farm fishery...seems ok there and there is another close by (Romsley area) and on both you can park by your peg one has two pools and the other has about five pools.

    brockamin pools in worcester is decent,got 2 pools,bottom pools got the lumps in,carp go up to 30+ in there,i had quite a few 20's out last year.both are runs waters & you should have some action.you can get a day ticket or season ticket from alans tackle in worcester.The fishery is fenced off & you are given code for gate & you dont get that many in the week so you wont be bothered.
