For only £26 per day you can fly fish for trout. This entitles you to take five fish and then continue on a catch and release basis, provided you use barbless or debarbed hooks.

If you have limited time, but would like to experience fly fishing on Blithfield Reservoir, then a day permit or 4 hour permit is perfect for you.

If you are new to fishing and require some tuition we can provide a free, one-off tuition session. Please contact us in advance to make sure that we can accommodate you
