Carp For Sale
Carp is just a Carp? Well you would have thought so but we would like to show you different. The strain of Carp we breed at the Priory is unique to our farm and was created 30 + years ago by crossing two very distinctive strains. The strains in question are the classic Leneys which are the original English strain farmed by Donald Leney, long scaly and a steady grower with more history than any other. The second strain is the German Dinkensbhul, which is shorter framed less scaled Carp but with an incredible growth rate and very domesticated which is ideally suited for farm and fishery life.
By crossing the two strains we have created fast growing Carp which are a mix of leathers, mirrors, linear’s and fully scaled, perfect for a good mix within a fishery. From many years of farming this strain it has proved itself time and time again as a hardy strain that is suited not only to the busy life of a match fishery but also to that of a specimen Carp lake or gravel pit. There is nothing better than to hear of one of our Carp reaching 40lb or a match fishery report where you see a healthy bag of our fish winning a competition. We grow and sell Carp from 3-4 inches right up to double figure and such is the popularity of the bigger sizes we take bookings for the fish a year in advance!
Stocking 3-4lb Carp into the Grange in 2006 these fish are now upper forties as reported by fishery manager Kenny Gates, so this shows the potential. Blunham Angling bought the same size fish and within a year these fish were hitting mid double and in 2011 were being caught at 28lbs, and have the looks to match! . A Carp is not just a Carp and these days people want more from their fish, so we at Priory Fishery offer a service of contract growing your fish to your size and requirements.
