Brown Trout Season Opens soon!

It is on again from Saturday August 6!

What is known as the Brown Trout new season opening casts off Saturday 6th till Sunday 30th April 2017.

That mean all rivers & streams plus the majority of lakes, classified as Brown Trout waters are open again.

For us fly fishers it can be a little early, as August is still winter, but if you want to have an early introductory workshop and visiting then, drop us a line.

Water … water everywhere, and how those fish did spawn!


A quality wild brown from an earlier high water season start – around the 4lbs on a #4wt – great fish – top action.

This year we have had the wettest late Autumn/Winter for years and don't the fish just love it.

I can't wait for the early Spring to come on and expect the waters to stay high for many weeks into the season giving the recovering trout excellent feeding conditions after their best spawning runs for ages.

Spring time enquiries are on the increase, so don't leave it too long to get in – check out the Bookings Calendar.
