Dogfish Freshwater: How did you get into fishing?


We’re not just into fishing, we’re passionate about it. I started fishing aged 9 and I’ve never looked back. To me fishing is a life skill that teaches patience, discipline and determination, all qualities that are greatly valued in any job. It’s also great fun to see people come back for more.

What to feed your fish with?

Carp feed

One of the most popular fish for pet fish is carp. Carp fish tend to eat a lot of aquatic plants and can develop gill issues if they do not eat enough. If you’re feeding a tank of carp, it is a good idea to feed a variety of feed for better health. There are a wide range of commercial carp feeds on the market. If you want to feed your own fish, we would recommend using a high quality wet food mix for superior health and growth rates. If you are feeding aquarium fish in the garden, you will probably need to mix the feed yourself to get the correct consistency.

Trout feed

Trout have great appetite for fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens. Fresh trout eat only what they need and do not suffer from the same gill infections that carp do.

Trout Feed

We make all of our own trout and pike feed from high quality, traceable ingredients and we stock the top brands of all of the UK’s premium premium brands. Our pike and trout feeds are made from fish meal with some forage to top up the flavour. Dogfish Freshwater fishmeal is a high quality, clean feed made from 100% sustainable fish. There’s no ‘dogfish’ in the name and our fish meal is high quality and ethically sourced.

Koi Feeds

We offer a wide range of koi and ornamental fish food. Our feed is made in the UK to a strict specification and your koi will get the best of flavour and nutrition. The koi food will be high quality fish and vegetable based and contains no additives or preservatives.

Carp Feed

Tail hooks are another option you may want to consider. While they are excellent for keeping fish in place during the fight, and are ideal for catch-and-release fishing, they are also good for breeding fish in fish farms. They are harder to set up than tie downs and they often become soggy with the blood during a battle.

We have tail hooks on all our koi carp food ranges. Carp feed is highly recommended for all fish keeping enthusiasts, especially those with large sized koi.

Fish Tank Propthane: What You Need To Know

While Fish Tank Propthane can be used in a very large number of fish tanks, it is an essential fish food additive in the creation of most goldfish foods.

We stock and supply the same food we use for our own fish.

Koi Food

Don’t let the colour and small size fool you. A fine koi feed is suitable for fish of all sizes. Our premium range has a special ingredient to combat nutrient deficiency and help your koi grow, build strong immune systems, and exhibit an incredible appearance.

Dry Shampoo And Shower Rods

We have a range of excellent products to help you build the ultimate kit for the perfect dry shampoo and shower rod! Our only factory free products leave no residue on the body, hair or bath walls, and come in a selection of colours for your personal touch!
