THE CARP N' SILVERS LAKE WILL REOPEN ON SATURDAY 17TH FEBRUARY
Milemead Fisheries is owned and run by brothers Andrew and Paul Evenden.
They bought the rough grazing land known as Milemead in 1986.
Between them, they have built up the fishery from scratch, which is no mean feat
when you realize that when they both started their dream, they were just 22 and 18 years old.
Even now 30 years on the Fishery is still evolving.
The Fishery is located in a quiet valley approximately 2 miles outside of Tavistock, West Devon.
With 5 coarse waters in total we can offer something for everyone,
from the complete beginner to the most serious specimen carp angler.
We have a well stocked shop selling top branded tackle, bait,
snacks and most of the items that you left at home.
Tackle hire is available at £5 per day.
Anglers who want to fish the Carp N’ Silvers Lake, Canal or Canal Basin
who arrive before our shop opens are welcome to carry on and start fishing,
but kindly requested to come back and pay for their permit when our shop opens at 9 am.
Anglers who arrive after this time should purchase a permit before they start fishing.
