Bank House Fly Fishery

At 2½ acres Bank House is only a small water but has been carefully planned and designed with fly fishing and wildlife in mind and a total of twelve small islands are scattered over the water giving the fishery a network of slow swims and pools. The islands and the vegetation break the line of sight for the angler, so that even when the fishery is full with 16 fishermen it does not feel crowded and gives a feeling of privacy with plenty of space available for the roving fishermen. The Dobson family are passionate about natural history and try to manage the six acre site to maximize its potential as habitat. The islands and surrounding banks have been planted with a mixture of cover and food trees for birds and nest boxes are scattered all over. Some land has been planted into small woods and some set aside for scrub. The result is a compact oasis with many differing habitats that attract a wide variety of British wildlife also a Fishing Tackle Shop. For more information click Bank House Fly Fishery
