Why I fish Manor Farm Leisure
a venue famed for it's big F1's 

Living in Evesham means Manor Farm Leisure is a venue right on my doorstep but I only fish it every now and again. It's a heavily stocked Commercial with 5 main match pools available and is framed for its big F1's. Plus it has its own 90 peg stretch of the Warwickshire Avon which is full of big Barbel and Chub.

I have an excellent choice of so many good commercial venues in the area and Manor Farm Leisure is a proven bomb and pellet venue which is fine but it's not a method I tend to enjoy much. I do take the odd match in though especially if it windy and it will be a rod match. Having said that the pole fishing is very good but with the pools being quite large the wind can get up. Making pole fishing difficult and I guess this is why the bomb dominates there.

As well as the great fishing, Manor does have the extra attraction of you being able to park your car behind a lot of its pegs for most of the year and with the amount of tackle us anglers carry these days that is a welcome blessing.

Manor has a café for a great breakfast before fishing and there is also a fully stocked tackle shop for your bait requirements. One of the many good things about Manor is that there are not many rules and you can fish pretty much what ever method or style you choose, plus you don't have to buy fishery feed pellets. Although the tackle shop always has plenty. All the pegs on the complex are made from concrete and they are also on two levels which is handy at the different times of the year. The pools can be pretty low in the height of summer and getting in to water may be a better option. In the winter months the concrete pegs may be under water and wellie's will be needed.
