PostSubject: Wraysbury 1 day ticket water from Spring/Summer 2016   Sat Jan 30, 2016 3:54 pm

We received a newsletter from RK Leisure who are running Wraysbury now

The newsletter doesn't seem to be on their website so here it is:
January Newsletter 2016
Happy 2016!

We would like to wish ll of our members a very happy new year and we are looking forward to the great angling stories to come our way from our collection of stunning lakes in 2016.

There have been lots of developments and improvements made in 2015. The opening of Wraysbury 1 day ticket water has been hugely popular with people travelling from abroad just to fish the historic venue. The works at the lodge are nearing completion and the shop in Wraysbury village has been the starting point for many fishermen to collect the essentials before their bountiful stays on the Horton and Wraysbury lakes. But more to come on that later!

Horton complex is once again being preened and prepared for the new season. The blackthorn trees that were planted last year are coming along well and many surveys are being undertaken to ensure that the native flora and wildlife are protected and thriving. Also in 2015 saw the installation of further security cameras to ensure the safety of all of our members and fish stock.

This year also saw a change in the membership numbers and the introduction of a new 'Black' card. The numbers on the lakes have now been reduced by 25% to make the venue more exclusive for our members. You can read more information on the Black ticket below. Former team member Maria has returned to the company this week and will be looking after the smooth running of the membership packs and any queries or issues that our members may have. Please call the office if you have any queries and she will be happy to assist.

We look forward to welcoming the old and new members and hope you all catch the fish of your dreams in this new season ahead!

Wraysbury 1 South Lake to open in Spring/Summer 2016!
Following the separation of the North and South sides of Wraysbury 1 in 2015 we are delighted to announce the opening of the South lake for the 2016/17 season. Wraysbury's North lake successfully opened to the public in 2015 as a day ticket water and has seen visitors arriving from around the globe to spend time on the banks and try to catch one of the originals.

Wraysbury 1 South lake will open in Spring 2016 as another day ticket venue. The 70 acre lake is home to a large head of both common and mirror carp following on from the stocking of the venue in 2013/14. Those fish currently range from double figures up to 30lbs at present. Alongside these is a head of original fish the numbers of which are unknown at present, but there have been eight fish this season ranging in weight from 33.4lbs up to 42lbs. We wouldn't be surprised if there was a 50lb+ lurking in the depths.

For our predator fishermen and women, RK Leisure will be offering a boat service where the group will be accompanied by a pike fishing expert for the excursion. This will be followed by a lakeside barbecue after a long day on the water. More information on this and how to book will be announced in February newsletter.

The Wraysbury South lake 24 hour day ticket will cost £30 per person for up to 3 rods. There is no limit on the length of stay. We also accept exclusive venue bookings for large parties. To answer any queries or check availability on your preferred dates, please call the office on 020 7534 0540 or by emailing

RK Leisure Bait & Tackle Shop
It is almost one year since the doors opened to our small shop situated in the heart of Wraysbury village. For those that have not been to visit yet, the shop was originally tailored to suit the modern carp angler. However, this year we are giving it a twist and alongside the current selection of brands such as Mainline Baits, Korda, Fox, Avid, Cotswold Aquarius, ESP, Gardner, Dynamite, Navitas, Trakker, Fortis and Enterprise Tackle to name a few, there will be the addition of N-Brice, Matrix Innovation and Thinking Anglers as well as a selection of outdoor clothing and equipment.

To tie in with the new season, the shop will also have new opening hours from 08:00 - 17:30 hours from Tuesday to Saturday and from 08:00-midday on Sundays. The shop is closed all day Monday. For enquiries please call 01784 488060.

The New Limited Edition 'Black' Membership
In 2016 RK Leisure have introduced a new Black Membership ticket. This will entitle the ticket holder to fish the whole of the Horton Complex as well as giving access to Wraysbury 1 North and South lakes at any time, subject to availability within the booking system.

For those unaware of Wraysbury 1 North, it is currently home to 12 carp in excess of 40lbs and a further 28 fish over 30 lbs. As previously mentioned in the newsletter, the South side of the lake is home to an unknown quantity of large original carp up to 42lbs.

For further information please call the office on 01784 488060. If you have already purchased a ticket and you wish to upgrade, please speak to one of the team.

Update from Jones Pit
It has been a great and unusual start to 2016 with some big carp being netted in the first weeks of January, but more unusually, a catfish being caught at a time when they should be in hibernation!

Philip Randall had a great week on the lake with a collection of big fish being caught. The one pictured above weighed in at 28.4lbs.

Mark Francis had another great success bringing in a catch weighing 29lbs after only one hour on the bank!

But most unusually was the catch made by Ian Mortimer who banked a 36lb catfish yesterday. We hope to have a photo in the next newsletter!

Kingsmead 1
Paul McCarthy, pictured above with his common carp 37lb 8oz catch, was one of a number of successful Anglers fishing on K1 through November and December.

While the Church lake slowed down in its traditional manner, K1 has provided fairly consistent spells of good fishing during the colder weather, to those who have persevered, culminating i a 30+fish week in the middle of January 2016.

Boat Pool Update
Liam Medhurst has spent most of this season on the Crayfish Pool but had a rare foray across the complex to the Boat Pool where he set up camp for several nights in early December.

After a short time, Liam caught several fish, one of which was the lakes 'Big Ghostie' who weighed in at 27lbs+.
