Trout Fishing Norfolk

Exclusive Private Lake in the Heart of Norfolk

Day trips available - May to Sept 2017 | Up to 10 People Per Trip.



 Trout Fishing Norfolk
These lakes are set in the heart of the rolling Norfolk countryside, where you can relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this idyllic fishing location.

Blackdyke Fishery in Feltwell, Norfolk has just been opened to the public and comprises of a terrific 8 acre lake that has in fact been established for several years. The fishing is proving to be all you would want from a small stillwater; there are plenty of hard fighting fish, all in the peak of condition.


Where is it?  Situated on the edge of the Norfolk fens, the fishery sits within easy reach of Bury St Edmunds, with Newmarket to the south, Kings Lynn and Swaffam to the East, Wisbech, Ely and Cambridge to the west. Contact me for directions.

Getting there by air: Nearest Airports are London Stansted Airport or Norwich Airport

What fishing gear to bring:  Your normal fly fishing gear (9‘ or 9’6” rods and floating lines.)

Don't have any fly fishing gear? We can arrange fishing gear for hire at £10 per head (including: rod, reel & line, nylon, 1 pack of flies, scissors and priest.)

The Itinerary For The Day:  We start at 9.30am and you will be met at the local inn and taken down the winding country lanes to the lakeside log cabin with all facilities.

Coffee will be served, followed by a briefing by the lake and then a quick demonstration of the casts and tactics most likely to succeed on the day.

Those of the party who fish regularly go off to try their hand, while the less adventurous will have a chance to practice under the watchful eye of Tim, your Instructor.  He will take everybody to a suitable place to catch a fish.

The fish in these lakes are hard fighting Rainbow Trout and can be up to 3lbs in size; some even more than that.

A BBQ lunch will be served at 1pm followed by more fishing until 4.30 when tea will be served and the catch weighed in.

To make this a fun day out, there will be prizes for 'the best novice' and 'the best experienced fisherman', 'the biggest fish' and the 'smallest fish'.

After this you can carry on fishing 'til dusk or leave happy and contented.

Day trips available - June & July 2017 | Up to 6 People Per Trip 


A day's guided fishing on the River Wye, covering all aspects of dry fly and nymph fishing on a limestone river.

The Derbyshire Wye is probably the most historic trout fishery in the north of England and one of the few rivers in the UK that rainbow trout have naturalized. Here you will have a chance to catch brown trout, wild rainbow trout and grayling.

The fishing is divided into sections (beats) and you will be allocated a beat in the morning and changing over to another one in the afternoon.

We will have lunch on the river bank, followed by more fishing in the afternoon with a break for tea around 4.30pm. We will carry on fishing for the evening rise, finishing around 7.30pm, then back to the hotel for dinner and relax in the bar where the stories of the day's fishing will no doubt be told.

Lunch today will be in the fishing hut on the river bank. The fishing on this river is upstream for dry fly or nymph only and stalking the fish is name of the game .
