Frequently asked questions at Barringtons

How much bait will I need?
We usually recommend between 2.5kg and 5kg per angler as we don't recommend the "fill it in" method.

What bait do you recommend?
We recommend our own Bazza Bait which is a high quality, made to order freezer bait. We can also advise you of commercial boilies that have proven themselves here if you message us. We can also let you know which ones do not work here.

If you supply bait on site, will I be able to get more bait during my stay if I need it? 
Yes

Is my UK carp set-up suitable for use at your lake? 
Rods should be at least 2.75 test curve, reels with larger capacity spools, e.g. 10,000 size spools or larger.

What hook size do you recommend? 
Size 4 & 6 micro barbed.

What breaking strain of main line do you recommend? 
A minimum of 15lb.

What is the surface of the swims - can I use bank sticks?  
The swims are gravelled and you can use bank sticks. Although a rod pod is recommended on our swims.


Are any special tactics required?  

Generally the throwing stick is king. Spodding is not recommended. Avoid putting down beds of bait as the fish swerve them (once you put it in, you can't take it out). Casting is more effective than using a bait boat in general.

Do you recommend use of a bait boat?
Swims 6 & 7 have spots where it would be easier to reach them with a bait boat. Generally, we recommend casting. 

Can I drive all the way around the lake in order to unload? 
No, but you can drive to the back of swims 1 & 7. Your gear can be taken to your swim by Barry in our boat.

Is the lake secure? Can we leave our gear on the bankside if we go out?    
We consider the lake to be secure. It is 3km from a main road and we don't get casual visitors. When you go out, we stay at the lake to ensure the safety of your gear.

Can we drink the tap water?    
Although the tap water comes from our house tap, we do not recommend that you drink it. There are signs displayed next to all taps stating this. We also bring bottles of water from our house that we use for drinking and cooking and can supply to anglers. We can also take your water containers home to fill for you.

Do you have UK plug points?   
No, but there are USB points in the outside kitchen for you to charge your phones/tablets. We run a 12 volt solar system for electricity which runs the lights and the water pump. We can also charge your boat batteries for you.

How far are the nearest supermarket / petrol / tabac?   
The nearest town with these services is about 6 kilometres from the main road, which is 3km from the lake. The Tabac is closed between 12 and 2.30, as is the Pharmacy. The three supermarkets (Lidl, Aldi and Intermarche) are open from 8.30 to 19.30 except for Sunday when only Intermarche is open 9.00 to 12.30. The petrol is available from Intermarche and you pay by bank card at the pump.
