Fly Fishing Lessons At Blackdyke Fishery, Norfolk

I am happy to announce that I have recently added another great fly fishing location here in Norfolk from where I will be running extra beginners and improvers fly fishing lessons. See dates below.

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.


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.

The facilities there are probably the most up to date of any fishery in the region: There is a good anglers lodge with toilet and shower facilities for ladies, and gentlemen and they also cater well for the physically challenged. A fully fitted kitchen is also available for large or small events. Tea, coffee and snacks are available to all during fishing.

On the lake there are 3 boats with electric motors and one wheely boat for physically challenged anglers. There is plenty of bank space with varying depths of water from 10’ to over 20’ in places.  As the fishery is based on chalk with a clay underlining the water tends to be very clear, which produces an abundant fly life.

As mentioned, I will be using this fishery for both Beginners and Improvers courses this year. Please contact me for any bookings as we tend to get booked up In the Spring quite quickly. I have attached the dates for the courses below:

  1. Hi Tim

    Many thanks for your patience on what turned out to be a very enjoyable “one to one” lesson this morning. You were very patient with me! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and hope that I can remember all your tips and put at least some of them into practice!

    The paddock, and then the water, await!!

    You are truly an excellent, experienced, encouraging, and sympathetic tutor – who could ask for more?

    Hope to catch up with you again sometime.



  2. Hello Tim,

    My name is Thomson Walter and I want to know if there is any availability for 7 students to come to your place for private fly fishing lessons. Also, the 7 students are citizens of the United States. They want 3hrs per student for 2 weeks.

    If there is availability, kindly let me know about the dates, quotes and accommodation availability as well.

    They are looking forward to arrival on: 10 August of 2010,
    Departure date: 22nd August .

    They want to have their Private Fly Fishing Lessons with your company.

    You can write me to my direct email.

  3. We live down in Brighton and my husband has done a spot of sea fishing down at the Marina. He’s expressed an interest in fishing inland (sorry not sure if that’s fly fishing) so I’ll have to show him your site.

    It’s a really pretty blog btw and the pictures look fantastic. I’ll see if he’s interested in a course (maybe an early b’day present 😉

  4. Great stuff Tim

    I’m looking forward to the coming season will be in contact with you for getting some of your expert coaching

    Keep up the good work. There are lots of us out here that need help!

  5. Sounds terrific; I might visit there one day. I’m gonna bring a friend with me, so excited!!!!!

  6. Hi Tim,

    I just wanted to ask if this was a natural lake, or if infact this is a man made lake, and if so when was it originally populated with fish stock? We have a small lake on our property and I am thinking of stocking it but am unsure of how long I would need to leave it prior to fishing the stock?

  7. Hi Tim
    Is the lake at Feltwell open to the public, if so what is the cost of day ticket and what are the catch limitations
