  • Tucking Mill

    Located two miles south of Bath between Monkton Combe and Midford, Tucking Mill is home to a variety of birdlife including kingfishers, grey herons and eight species of bat.

    This site can only be accessed by footpaths and cycle paths that run nearby. You can join footpaths from the road or take steps down by the south exit of the Two Tunnels cyling/walking route.

    Fishing

    Free coarse fishing is offered to disabled anglers at Tucking Mill, a small water storage lake stocked with roach, rudd, bream, perch, carp, tench and gudgeon.

    There are 24 swims on site, six of them have specially designed wheelchair platforms large enough to provide space for two wheelchairs.

    Each disabled angler may bring along an able bodied assistant who can also fish from the same platform.

    Perch approaching up to 4lb in weight have been caught as well as a decent number of chub with the better fish weighing up to 4lb.

    Common and mirror carp are popular targets with fish well into double figures caught each year. There are also a couple of white and orange coloured koi carp weighing around 5lb.

    A recommended bait for good all round results is bread, either in punch or flake form for float fishing or as surface crust for carp in the warmer months. Maggots are also effective, as is corn. Pellets will work too but it pays to feed them on a little and often basis.

    Rod and line tactics are successful while the pole can work exceptionally well at times and you do not have to fish a long way out.
