As a long time carp angler I have a strong belief of what a carp syndicate should and shouldn't be and have incorporated these ideas into the Deepings syndicate, a well run fishery based on a benign dictatorship with practical and sensible rules which the members don't have to agree with but do have to adhere to. Over the 11 years the syndicate has been running very little has changed in regard to the rules or running of the syndicate which I believe confirms their effectiveness. Membership is by invitation only and is in the main taken from the existing membership of 2 & 3 or on personal recommendation. The membership fee's are on a reducing cost basis to discourage the fish at any cost brigade and encourage long term members who want to enjoy uncomplicated, friendly fishing in a pleasant environment.



Midsummer 2012 finds us with a number of large carp captures in the Deepings 1 lake with a 50lb+ common/mirror brace to one fortunate member in July and all the fish showing at their top weights. Deepings 2 is going through a transition period with the specimen catfish being removed to offer a carp only syndicate, as a result the carp are increasing in weight proportionally with the best fish going 40lb+ and a handful of new 30's appearing. Deepings 3 is the new lake being in its third year the fish are doing well with carp to mid, low 30's and lots of doubles and twenties coming through. The Deeping Syndicate 'no publicity' rule has been relaxed until further notice.
