MERE BECK FLY FISH­ING

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Where To Fish -

MERE Beck dif­fers from many still­wa­ters in that it is a mov­ing water fish­ery: around a dozen ponds are fed by water that is cir­cu­lated around them by means of pumps and small cas­cades. The venue boasts a broad va­ri­ety of bank­side land­scap­ing that will suit most an­glers. Rain­bow, brown and blue trout are stocked but only rain­bows and blues may be re­tained. All hooks must be de-barbed or bar­b­less.

Three, four or five-hour or full day tick­ets may be pur­chased and an­glers wish­ing to con­tinue fish­ing past their ticket’s time limit, may pur­chase ad­di­tional hours at £3 per hour. Evening ses­sions are avail­able. These must be pre-booked and paid for in ad­vance. The warm, com­fort­able lodge has toi­let fa­cil­i­ties, a small shop for ba­sic tackle and flies and of­fers com­pli­men­tary tea and cof­fee. All lev­els of fly an­gler are catered for, from ex­pert to ab­so­lute be­gin­ner and tu­ition and tackle hire are avail­able. The fish­ery now has a card pay­ment fa­cil­ity. Much of the water is ac­ces­si­ble for peo­ple with mo­bil­ity re­stric­tions and the fish­ery wel­comes ju­nior an­glers (an un­der-17 may fish free with a pay­ing adult). When ap­proach­ing Mere Beck, do not turn into ‘Mere Lane Fish­ery’, which is a coarse fish­ery next door to your des­ti­na­tion.
