Day-night fishing permit (Back Lake)

Sleeps 1
1 Bedroom

Nestling alongside the banks of the River Stour, and scattered with dot islands, weed and reed beds, lilies and other features, the Rum Bridge Back Lake will appeal to more experienced specimen carp anglers, populated (as it is) only by large mirror and common carp ranging from 22lbs to a current lake record of 42lb 11oz.

Compostable ‘eco’ toilets are located close by. There are also hot showers, flush toilets and a field kitchen available to all our guests. The extensively stocked onsite tackle and bait shop offers a comprehensive selection of terminal tackle, bait, hot and cold snacks and other essentials, seven days a week. And our hot food delivery service mean you won’t even need to leave your swim – making long stay carping an altogether more civilized affair.


Though small and very well stocked, the Road and Back Lakes are weedy and extremely tricky to fish – trickier, indeed, than many lower stocked gravel pits several times the size. So, please DO NOT BOOK EITHER POND unless you are: an experienced carp angler, used to targeting big fish in challenging conditions; or you’re content to enjoy your time on the bank, with great facilities and the possibility (if not prospect) of a new PB.

Although bivvy-fishing on the Back Lake is limited to just two anglers per day, day-night fishing is also permitted from the ‘Carper’s Cabin’ (twin bed) pod, and 'Baywatch' the

twin-bed tipi.
