Located on a small 60 acre farm on the outskirts of Essex and London, Picks Cottage Fishery was originally used as pasture for the cattle on a small family farm. The first lake, known as ‘Top Lake’ today, was constructed in 1987 by Andrew T Roddick to irrigate the families 'pick your own fruit' business.  With the popularity of angling growing rapidly through the 1990s, the fishery soon expanded to the four lake fishing complex you see today. Throughout this time, we have continued to take great pride in the lakes and ensure they are maintained to the highest of standards.

Picks Cottage Fishery is currently managed by Andrew James Roddick, the son of Andrew Thomas Roddick. 'Jamie' as he is known to most, grew up on the farm and has a lifetimes knowledge of Picks Cottage Fishery. Jamie is committed to the development of Picks Cottage Fishery and continuing the good work started by his father. Since his tenancy in 2010, Jamie has continued to direct the fishery in a positive direction and ensures that standards are maintained to the highest of levels. Jamie's philosophy is simple - great fishing, great facilities, great service!

Testament to the fishery, the majority of our anglers return year after year for the great sport available at Picks Cottage (in some cases even decades!). Our lakes are stocked with traditional English bred carp with strong English heritage. We are firmly against the importation of foreign bred stock and the use of fast growing strains which can be found in many fisheries throughout the UK today. We implement a long-term stocking policy, ensuring a natural and sustainable fishing environment is provided for our stock.
