Blag­don Lake in North Som­er­set

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Contents -

BLAG­DON Lake sits at the foot of the Mendip Hills in an Area of Out­stand­ing Nat­u­ral Beauty. Its 440 acres con­tains deep basins and long banks, plenty of points and promon­to­ries as well as shal­low, shel­tered bays. Most of the seven-mile perime­ter has easy bank ac­cess but to ex­plore the more re­mote areas a boat is the an­swer. Gareth Jones re­veals his favourite areas.
