Main Lake Syndicate

The Main Lake is the place to chase monsters and realise your dream of holding a carp that is almost too heavy to lift!

The stocking and management of this lake has been conducted in a no compromise style designed with one outcome in mind: the creation of the finest big carp water in the UK.

The Main Lake comprises 18 acres of scientifically-managed water, with depths ranging from three to 18 feet. Features include numbers of gravel bars, a large island, and lush marginal growth.

Many of the comfortable, woodchipped swims are large enough for two anglers, and have been carefully positioned to give each occupant their own area of water.

Our stock of fish in the Main Lake is very well documented; we are not one of those waters that claims to have big fish but cannot provide good, recent photographic evidence! Every catch is recorded in the Catch Log and this enables us to keep very accurate tabs on the growth and number of our fish.

The documented stock of upper 30s and 40s is increasing all the time, with some fish gaining in excess of five pounds in a single year. This is the result of an extremely rich environment, something we have scientifically cultivated over many years.

We currently have an astonishing 21 fish over 40lbs, including the Gurm,The Boss, The Mommon and The Netted Fish whom are TRUE UK 50s and still growing. In addition to this we have a number of fish set to be 50 plus and a further 6 fish which we expect to go over forty pounds in the next year.

This incredibly high level of big carp in just 18 acres is virtually unprecedented and is the result of our own breeding programme, recognised by CEFAS, which utilises the latest aquaculture technologies (see Commercial Activities page for details).

To further enhance the Fryerning experience, we are actively working to reduce the overall number of members. This will create an even more exclusive and unique big carp syndicate!


At Fryerning occasional guests are welcome at our discretion. Members are allowed only one guest at a time. When you intend to bring a friend whether fishing or not, please let us know in advance.


The Fryerning syndicate is for like minded, positive anglers whether they are vastly experienced or new to the sport, we have the waters to accomodate all abilities to take their angling and P.B. to the next level. As all serious anglers know, effort equals rewards and the rewards are certainly here to be achieved at Fryerning!

Of course we can’t promise you will get a 40lb carp first cast (although this has happened!), but we can guarantee that the opportunity to catch true monsters is there. Challenge yourself we promise you won’t be disappointed!

XL Carp is run with you in mind – we have the expertise needed for you to have the very best chance of improving your average catch rate and chasing the dream of a giant P.B. carp!
