Just the normal crew of fish in there.The shop just through the crossroads at Woodseats was where you bought your tickets from to fish(maybe still is ?).There were some ghost carp in there aswell. I fished there years ago & it was full of trout coming down through Eccy woods.


I spoke to a bloke called Mr Gribbon at the Hamlet years ago about fishing permission.

Its absolutely stuffed full of fish. Day tickets available from Woodseats Angling, Woodseats Rd (not at the bankside!)

The day ticket fishing is from the roadside only (opp side members only). Year ticket is 40/year (with an extra 50 for the first year to help with stocking prices)

The fish that are in there are Tench (up to 1.5lb), Roach (1.5lb), Perch, Crusian, Skimmer Bream and brown trout (officially). Apperently someone has illegally stocked a few big carp 5 of which came out a recent corperate match (biggest was a 7lb common)

Take lots of bait. The more bait you have the more you'll catch! Pellet is the cheapest method, but you'll be plagued with skimmers. I fished a 4 hour evening session and got through 1/2 kilo of worm and a pint of casters and half a tin of sweetcorn(and I slowed my feeding down to prolong the session!)

You only need to fish about 3-4 metres out

Bans are no keepnets, no meat (can't remember the rest)

Its worth a visit

I don't think there is any more info-

Its stuffed with silvers and tench- the bailiff informed me there were carp in there, but not many (they'd been put in illegally)

Use bread flake, maggots and worm/ caster to bag up all year round. If you are fishing from the roadside, then there is a ledge that goes off towards where the water goes into the hamlet (see the rails)

I fished chopped worm and caster and got plenty of tench (although it was the summer)

Get your ticket from Woodseats Angling - you can't buy on the bank

I worked at the cafe there for years,and belive me that pond had the biggest perch that i have ever seen,but when the pond was taken over by pete gribbon not one was found.Where did they all go,the river me thinks.i still think that this pond had the potential to be one of the norths top carp venues,but was selfishly stocked with fish that pete like to catch.Its ok if ya like catching bits but for big carp not that good,when i worked there the biggest carp i caught before he took over was 23 lb lovely ghostie.But all these were left to die while the pond was dug out.

1, The Pond was dug out because it was leaking into the Hamlet.
2. The fish were caught and removed by the Environment agency.
They were transfered to one of their holding Ponds while the dam was repaired but they lost them when the pond silted over.( Including the Lovley ghosties )
3, Mr Gibbon was not responable for restocking the pond the way it is now,that was done at the request of the Members,who were fed up of catching Perch all the time.

So what is in there now? Is it worth a visit come June? I'm just getting back into fishing after a break of several years. Having looked on Google I've not found much around sheffield that inspires me. Seems for the best fishing you need to travel towards either Doncater or Nottingham (mostly looked for still waters due to close season but happy to fish anything). Someone please tell me I'm wrong.
