Mid Kent Fisheries - Sandwich
This canal type venue is owned by Sandwich Town council and is available to Mid Kent Fisheries members and residents of Sandwich Parish. The residents are issued tickets by the Parish council.
The residents are issued tickets by the Parish council. The venue is a canal type of water and fishing is from the town bank only. There is a towpath which runs parallel with the water making access easy for disabled anglers. There is a large car park directly behind the Town Hall which leads directly onto the towpath.
There is a very good stock of carp in the canal with weights reaching into double figures although the average weight would be 5-6lb. There is also a good stock of roach and rudd. The venue is great for a fun days fishing and a fantastic venue for teaching children to fish.
Make sure you take all your litter home!!!!!!
Carp to about 7lb to 8lb
Sandwich rope walk remembers the great maritime heritage of the town which was once the largest port in England. The rope walk was where the ropes for the ships were made. The Butts, on around the walls clockwise was where the bowmen practised their archery.
What were the walls and moat - where you are fishing - of Sandwich was transformed into this layout in preparation for the visit of Queen Elizabeth, the first one!
As part of our ongoing plan to provide an excellent service as well as creating fantastic waters throughout the south east we at Mid Kent Fisheries are pleased to announce that we now have on board kevin Durman, a licensed Angling trust coach.
