Watermark has become famous for its crystal clear water and high
quality fish we grow on-site in our own spring-fed stock ponds.
The high flow rate in these ponds ensure the fish are almost wild,
which means a 4lb minimum leader due to the fighting ability of
these pristine fish. This is an ideal stalking waterand is one of
the best dry fly lake fisheries in the area.
Through the Seasons
The buzzer fishing is second to none. Try a superglue
buzzer in size 12 or even 10 on a 12-14ft leader, fished figure
of eight. Look out for the green drakes in May, with lures always
a good bet on intermediate and fast-sinking lines.
The fishery is blessed with deep, cold spring-fed
water. If the water warms up, you need to go deep. Try a boobie
nymph, or a large lure and you will consistantly find hard-fighting
silver fish throughout the season.
A variet of lures on intermediate and sinking
lines are deadly. Just remember - brown trout must be returned out
you're a beginner or an intermediate angler, one of the best investments
you can make is in a days flyfishing tuition with our instructors,
who will inpart years of experience, and fast track you into the
world of flyfishing. Call us to arrange - 01285 862680
