Four top wa­ters to visit this month

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Contents -

THIS 18-year-old Shrop­shire wa­ter boasts four spring-fed lakes – Crany­moor, Lake­moor, Meadow and Marsh – each with its own in­di­vid­ual char­ac­ter, and all are well-stocked with rain­bow, brown and blue trout. The av­er­age size is 3lb but fish up to 20lb are caught daily. The lakes have been de­signed for ease of cast­ing and with dis­abled ac­cess to each one. Ar­eas in close prox­im­ity to much of the lakes have been cleared of ob­sta­cles, en­abling wheel­chair ac­cess as close as pos­si­ble to the wa­ter­side. The fish­ery’s com­pre­hen­sive fa­cil­i­ties fea­ture am­ple car park­ing, toi­lets (in­clud­ing dis­abled toi­lets), a small cafe and an ex­ten­sive tackle shop. A range of hot and cold food at the cafe is pre­pared fresh on site and in­cludes ba­con and sausage sand­wiches, cakes and con­fec­tionery. Un­lim­ited free tea and cof­fee are avail­able for vis­it­ing an­glers. The tackle shop can kit an­glers out with the lat­est tackle at an ex­cel­lent price. It stocks all man­ner of rods and reels, flies and fly-ty­ing equip­ment, sun­glasses and new ranges of cloth­ing. The fish­ery is a main listed sup­plier of Scierra, Air­flo, Wy­ch­wood, Greys, Snow­bee and many more well-known names, and its fly range runs to more than 2000 flies, tied by Fulling Mill and Iain Barr. On­line shop­ping is pos­si­ble via the fish­ery web­site. Begin­ners and more ex­pe­ri­enced an­glers can book fly cast­ing tu­ition at Eller­dine and win­ter fly-ty­ing courses are also avail­able. Group book­ings of the fish­ery are wel­come.
