Tommy’s Hole is actually owned by WDAA, but up to recently it was probably the one of the most neglected waters in our portfolio.  The water is stream fed by Petty pool brook which brings a lot of sandy silt with it and over the years the silt trap that is at the entrance to pool filled up and the sand gradually built up a large sand bank which covered about a third of the pool.  So in early 2016 a plan was put together to bring the pool back to life. The old rickety bridge over the outlet stream has been replaced with a new very sturdy bridge and a small foot bridge was placed across the inlet which means for the first time in many years you can walk all the way around the pool. There is a good head of mixed fish species in the pool, with Carp present up to about 9lbs.  During early 2017 a contractor was engaged and the sand bank has been completely dug out and the banks have been landscaped. There is still plenty to do and the work is ongoing, Plans for Lily beds, permanent pegs, and further species of fish to be introduced as the pool becomes re-established.
Give it a LOOK you will be surprised at how much it has improved; also there is an electric fence around the pool now to keep cattle away from the water and anglers.

MEMBERS ONLY
The pool is now open all year round for angling.
Parking is minimal across from the old millhouse.
