Cowlands farm is a mature 5 acre fishery situated near Braintree, Essex. The venue provides the members of the syndicate numerous angling opportunities, whether you prefer to sit behind your rods or stalk in the edge. Although classed as a farm reservoir it was dug for gravel extraction and hasn’t been used for irrigation in years. Soon after the lake was dug it undergone some major landscaping with many indigenous trees planted. These have now fully matured and the venue is a lovely place to wet a line. The lake is situated in a dip so the angler is well sheltered and protected from the full forces of mother nature. Cowland’s has a multitude of features which makes it an interesting place to fish. The old part of the lake has depths to 15 foot and there are some sharp drop off’s in the margins where the old lake previously was. There are a lot of carp present in Cowlands with untold twenties, around thirty 30lb plus carp topped by a couple of forties. The amount of 35lb plus fish has shot up recently and we are expecting more forties to push through.
