OUR WATERS >>
The information and brief descriptions below show the the diverse waters the club holds together with the fish species that members can expect to find.
The Club takes Bio-security very seriously and encourages all members to take regard of the Check, Clean and Dry policies from the Environment Agency to try to ensure that we do not transfer any undesirable agents from one water to another.
If you wish to fish accompanied by your dog, please do not let the dog swim in the river since this blows holes straight through any Bio-security policies.
OUR WATERS >>
Fifty Nine Flyfishers club enjoys a 2.75 mile stretch of single & double bank fly fishing on the River Dove on the Derbyshire & Staffordshire border. The river was fished by Isaak Walton and Charles Cotton of Compleat Angler fame. The river holds a good head of wild and stocked brown trout. There are some impressive grayling present throughout our stretch of the river.
We have two beats of just under one mile each on the River Lugg at Mortimers Cross and at Aymestrey. These beats hold wild and stocked brown trout and resident grayling. The beats are mixed single and double bank fly fishing.
Near Bromsgrove is Cattespool Fishery a 1.0 hectare lake stocked with rainbow and brown trout. This lake offers some good stillwater fishing in a lovely setting.
Just inside Eryri (formerly Snowdonia National Park) on the River Dovey we have about 1 mile of single bank fishing. This is a spate river with runs of both salmon and sea trout. There are some brown trout present. There is a water fall and gorge about half way up the beat.
The River Teme at Knightwick is about 1.25 miles of single
bank fishing. This is a mainly coarse fishing beat with barbel and chub but there are some salmon, sea trout, with some brown trout to 4lb and good size grayling. A map is available and you can follow the link from our Members Only page which gives good and safe guidance for a number of wading areas in this water.
SORRY BUT WE HAVE NO DAY TICKET AVAILABILITY AS ALL OUR WATERS ARE FOR MEMBERS ONLY.
