Here is a short aerial video of Brocard Large during the drain down and netting this November. We also managed to get some great photos as the carp were returned to the lake.
39 acre Brocard Large is drained and netted each year, small roach and zander are removed and the carp stock safely passed back over the net. This takes place once the lake has closed for the winter. We found it interesting to get such a clear view of the old river bed that runs through the lake. The lake is relatively shallow and the bed is mainly made up of clay with a covering of silt. You can see photos of the lake once filled with water here.
Here are some photos taken when returning the carp to the lake…
