''I recently achieved a lifelong ambition of buying my own fishery, Borwick lake in Lancashire has been a specialist carp fishery for the past 30 years, the previous owner had stated that he hadn’t seen otters at the fishery, but I knew it was only a matter of time before we got a an unwelcome visit and decided to get a couple of quotes straight away, with the intention of starting the fence in the spring. The lake is an ex gravel pit approx. 35 – 40 years old , very pretty with lilies and...Steve Cream, Owner Borwick Lake, Lancashire
"The service that Otter Stop provided was top quality. From initial request for information and proposal through to final installation was completely hassle free. "They developed a top quality product on time and to budget. Their care and attention to detail during the 7 days on site was impressive with their knowledge of what fisherman need always at the front of things. "Dave Marvell and his team worked solidly through the 7 days despite the appalling cold and wet...David Hammond - Owner Gwinear Fishery Cornwall
"On behalf of The Carp Society I would like to say a very big thank you to Dave Marvell and the team at Otterstop for the fantastic job they have done at Horseshoe Lake. I first became aware of Otterstop at a conference at Sparsholt College where Dave was giving a talk. The following winter I discovered a couple of dead Carp on Horseshoe, the carp had obviously been attacked by a predator and although I couldn’t be 100% certain the culprit was an Otter , there were enough...Miles Carter - Fisheries Manager for The Carp Society

You were thoroughly professional and the finished article looks amazing.

"I just wanted to write and say that I am now sleeping at night, safe in the knowledge that all my fish are secure. Having spent lots of time and money on the 12 strand electric fence, I was pretty sure I had been secure before, but somehow they still got in ! I am going to add a single wire of electric about 3 feet up your fence just as a ‘belt and braces job’ but I don’t think I really need to, its just for my own sake. The fence looks very tidy, and the quality is excellent...Terry - Near Gatten Fishery, South Shropshire
"I have used Otter Stop and was very pleased with the speed of reaction provided by the supplier. I wanted to install very quickly and Mr Marvell pulled out all the stops to get me a fence to the site and installed within 2 weeks of placing an order. The supplier has worked tirelessly with me over a number of issues and was thoroughly supportive – I can wholly recommend their use. Service was particularly second to none."Simon Brain, BA Tech Arbor A - Chartered Arboriculturist

The total length of 1,400 metres around a perimeter that was mostly tree lined was in itself a challenge but you overcame every obstacle and finished the job within your timescale of 14-15 working days. "We will take pleasure in recommending you to any other fishery owner or club that are looking at...Dave Crookes - Dave Crookes Fishery at Hunstrete
