Leigh Mill Fly Fishing Syndicate

Members only. No day tickets

Latest news (as of 15 September 2021)

The new 2021-2022 fishing season started on the 1 March 2021. 

During last year’s fishing and with the onslaught of this terrible virus that is Covid-19, we had to close the lake from the end of March to mid-May and introduce restrictions during the three lockdowns. Despite these traumatic and unprecedented events, the fishing has never been better. The lake was, and still is, in excellent conditions and a record number of visits to the lake was registered and the highest catch for the past 5 years or more has been recorded.

The new season expectations are high.
