Click on me Bream Carp Perch Roach Rudd Tench Pike

Situated just outside Layer de la Haye about 4 miles from Colchester, this is an excellent fishery, with a well deserved reputation for big fish. In the last year, Carp in excess of 37 lbs, Bream to over 12 lbs and Pike over 25 lbs have all been landed.

The lake holds an impressive number of Carp weighing over 20lbs, but is also a good fishery for the pleasure angler, with fish of all other species present.

Layer Pit is has a restricted membership which requires any new applicant to do four work parties and pay a joining fee.

Following the dredging operation a few years ago, access is severely restricted for the less active angler.
