The Wensum Valley's Catch 22 Fishing Centre is located in a peaceful and pleasant environment. Strong fighting carp up to 40 pounds can be found here.

Modern Complex, First Class.

The isolated Wensum Valley's Catch 22 Fishing Centre is home to beautiful fish.

We want to provide and preserve a quality packed fishery, which is nestled away in the Norfolk countryside. We're always thinking about how we can make anglers' experiences better and how we can improve fish safety and welfare.

Anglers can choose from a variety of ticket options to fit their budget. Whether you prefer carp fishing, bream fishing, pike fishing, tench fishing, or perch fishing, we have a ticket for you.

For these and other reasons, readers of Big Carp magazine selected Catch 22 one of the best 10 fisheries in the UK in 2016 and 2017.

How Many Lakes Are There?

We have two lakes on the property. One is a 23-acre Day Ticket Lake with 31 bankside swims, an island swim, and peg 32, while the other is a 4-acre Syndicate Lake with 16 swims.

Is it necessary for me to make a reservation?

If you wish to fish from a bankside swim, you may simply show up on the day. The Island Swim and Peg 32 must be reserved ahead of time.

What types of payment do you accept?

All major credit/debit cards, as well as cash, are accepted. We have a portable card machine, so we can accept card payments right at the bank.

All of them are cleaned on a regular basis, and the indoor ones are kept warm throughout the winter. Showers are available for a token fee that may be purchased at the tackle shop.

If you don't want to push your barrow to your pool, the quad service is excellent.

Stunning carp with a great fighting ability brought from the Netherlands with a MAFF license in 1992 and 1994. A few thousand were sent to the United Kingdom. The rest was made up of mirrors, leathers, and linears, with 65 percent being commons. The carp are a Germanic and Royal Italian breed based on traditional river carp, which explains their size and development potential.

Five known forties, 70 thirties, and a substantial head of twenties and upper doubles may be found in the Day Ticket Lake. It also has specimen pike up to 40 pounds, bream up to 20 pounds, tench up to 14 pounds, roach up to 4 pounds, and perch up to 5 pounds.

The amount of thirties in the No.2 Syndicate Lake is incredible. 60 carp, with 30 to 49 pounders accounting for 3/4 of the total. Smaller carp under 30 pounds were introduced into the lake 7 years ago from our stock ponds. There are also roach up to 4 pounds, big tench up to 14 pounds, rudd, perch, and a few pike up to 30 pounds.
