The Bacheliers have been busy! Here’s our round-up of the nettings and stockings so far this winter…
The well respected Bachelier family own five of our venues – Jonchery, Jonchery #7, Brocard Small, Brocard Large and Brie. Whilst these venues are all unique in their own way, they also share something in common – the fantastic looking Bachelier strain of carp.
Each winter the lakes are netted and the stocks are checked. Small fry are removed and sometimes other homebred fish are introduced. Here’s our highlights so far;
Here are just a couple of the 44 carp newly introduced to Brocard Small last week. The carp that went in weighed up to 45lb. They’ll join stocks of around 450 carp (to mid fifties) and catfish (to 110lb) already residing in this 29 acre lake.
The sun came out briefly during the netting at Jonchery. Bailiffs Mark & Franck managed to get photos of their personal favourites;
And to finish it off here are a handful of the incredibly stunning carp we’ve seen at the Brocard Large netting this week.
