Musson Liggins have advised clients on a number of fishing lakes and water courses during the last year. Fishing Lakes vary in style, size and design from man made facilities to managed gravel pit lakes, some with river connection and to rural lakes set in woodland locations.
Demand for these types of property has been good and the practice has acted on behalf of clients who were selling, clients who were buying and lenders who were lending against the asset.
Nottinghamshire in particular around the Trent Basin has an abundace of fishing lakes, many of which evolved from former aggregate extraction and which have benefitted from silt removal, landscape managment and the installation of otter predation measures to protect fish.
The lakes are charactersied by the presence of Carp, Chub, Zander, Barble, Roach, Bream and Pike.
Angling clubs vary in membership, as do the size of water courses and some lakes with which we have been involved are in excess of 30 acres of water and in one instance the Angling Club had in excess of 1,000 members.
If we can help with advice, let us know.
