Belmont Valley Fishery** (Egerton Road, Belmont, Bolton, Lancashire)

Coarse and Specimen Carp fishing lessons available on 2 lakes. Belmont Valley is nestled at the foot of Winter Hill in a beautifully wooded location. The fishery comprises of two waters, a specimen Carp lake which takes some beating both in it's stock of specimen Carp and it's looks and a coarse fishing lake which holds more than one or two surprises. I have caught lots of fish from both lakes and this is a firm favourite of mine.
