The bream in this lake with pretty surroundings and a good depth have come on tremendously and subscribe well towards a good day's fishing. Pellets have been successful, but simple bread flake has accounted for a range of good specimens from a variety of species including 5lb chub from the upper level portion.

Highfield Fisheries Ltd, as it is officially called, at Thorpe Abbotts off the Harleston-Diss road, is owned by Gary Miller, and run by his daughter Charlotte.

There is plenty of choice to get the wind behind you or sit in the sun on the nicely prepared swims. The biggest top lake has produced the best specimens as far as weight goes with ghost carp carp exceeding 20lb and mirrors to 28lb. Good silver fish too, and roach of 2lb have come from the other lake with the island in. Reasonable depths from most swims permit a number of approaches to try but a small feeder fished out, has taken the edge of late.

The first long, narrow, shallower water on the left of the entry has produced surprisingly good form from the first impressions one may draw of its potential with, not just carp and roach, but there are a few bream cruising about still in the 7lb range too.

Sweetcorn has taken the most consistent catches of sizeable fish all round, but small lumps simple bread fished really close to the edges took some beautiful crucians to the pound mark in the two bigger lakes.

Topcroft Lake Quiet Sports fishery has been slow fishing well out at both ends, but patience has paid off for those feeding the margins and sticking with it. Bungay's John Kelly thought he was out of luck when the strong wind tipped his umbrella, box and bait over spilling it into the side. With a bit of smart retrieval work completed and reorganisation, the two pints of lost maggots soon saw a shoal of carp up to 4lb make the water muddy in no time at all at his feet as hungry commons gorged on the feast, giving him 20 lbs in a matter of minutes.

Broome Pits has seen a bit more colouration in the water and fish more enthusiastic to feed. B Pit has shown the best form for general fishing, but D Pit receiving attention from carp anglers in particular has thrown up several doubles and a 23lb mirror. Day tickets are available on the bank priced £5. Sweetcorn in the far corner and down the slope out on to the shallow bank in the car park area of A Lake, has at last been productive for tench with a 40lb bag of fish to 6lb the best of late.
