Our superb fishing venue provides the discerning fly fisherman with the opportunity to fish in tranquil surroundings from either boat or bank. Membership includes full use of the clubs facilities including unlimited use of the clubs boats and life jackets. There is ample private parking next to the fishing lodge, which is located close to the lake. Our members are friendly, helpful and always willing to share a tip or two on how to increase your catch rate.


Over the last five years the average catch rate per member works out at just under two fish per visit. While our members enjoy fishing on a catch and release basis they can also take up to three fish per day. Many of our members fish on a catch and release basis and statistics show that on average only 20% of stocked trout are taken each year. That coupled with regular stocking should mean there are plenty of fish to be caught. View historical catch returns here and the current years figures here.

Our membership is run on a non-commercial basis, and is limited to sixty members, to ensure that the fishery remains unspoilt and a unique and pleasurable place to fish. We ask all our members to renew their membership promptly as not doing so could result in a new member taking their place.
