My name is Vince Leader I am an avid angler with a passion for carp fishing. I have finally achieved a life long ambition to own a lake of the size and quality of Chilham Mill, the negotiations have been arduous but the reward is that Chilham Mill can remain one of the finest Carp fisheries in the country. I believe that by owning a lake with limited membership it will be possible to offer an exclusive relaxed fishing experience with none of the downsides associated with large memberships. It is a clear ambition of everyone involved in this project that Chilham Mill will not only be a top premier syndicate, but will be a friendly community for like minded anglers.
For those that are not familiar with what Chilham Mill offers, here are some brief details.It is a stunningly beautiful twenty six acre spring fed lake with depths to eight feet. There is a wealth of features ,every one of the thirty two swims has features in front of it. There is car access to all of the swims. The stock levels are in access of four hundred carp with eight known forties. There are more than 70 carp over the thirty pound mark and Pike to 35lb.
The lake has had a major makeover all swims have been widened and straightened or rebuilt where necessary, the base of each swim has been scraped and 10mm stones added. There has been extensive work carried out to the track that surrounds the lake this has been widened and hardened. We have introduced an environmentally friendly aeration system to keep the dissolved oxygen levels high which keeps our fish feeding all year! We also reduced the number of trees that surrounded the lake as it was impairing the wind flow and in turn effecting the oxygen levels in the lake.An otter fence has been erected around the whole perimeter, this has not only protected us from otters but will keep the lake a secure environment in which to fish. We have an ongoing stocking policy in place, c5 carp were introduced in 2012 and 2013 , further stockings 2015, 2016 2018 and 2019 have taken place, a further stocking of C4 ,C5, C6 and C7 will take place in the autumn/winter of 2020.
This years fees £1200 2020.
