Layer Pit

Church Road, Layer de la Haye, CO2 0, Essex, United Kingdom

Situated just outside Layer-de-la-Haye about 4 miles from Colchester, this is an excellent fishery, with a well deserved reputation for big fish. Carp in excess of 40 lbs, Bream to over 12 lbs and Pike over 25 lbs have all been landed. The lake holds an impressive number of Carp weighing over 20 lbs, but is also a good fishery for the pleasure angler, with fish of all other species present. Layer Pit has a restricted membership which requires any new applicant to do four work parties and pay a joining fee. Access is severely restricted for the less active angler.
