Pottishaw Fishery is a family run business providing high-quality fly fishing for Stocked Brown and Rainbow Trout based on a policy of 100% catch and release.
With 6.5 acres and a maximum of 17 bank anglers allowed at any one time there is plenty of space for anglers to move around should they wish and the almost oval shape of the fishery ensures that wind direction is never a problem for casting- great for less experienced visitors and beginners.
The bank has been left in its natural state with areas of reeds and low scrub, this encourages fish to come in very close when feeding. In addition float tubing is encouraged and two float tubes are allowed on the water at a time.
The catch and release policy allows fish to thrive here, with fish feeding and behaving naturally, resulting in very strong and well-conditioned trout which fight long and hard when hooked.
At Pottishaw Tea and Coffee is provided free on request and at the weekends hot food is available. A spacious cabin with a verand and fire is available for anglers to relax in.
Pottishaw also provides for club and corporate days, contact the fishery for available dates.
