Dry Fly Fishing

Private estate Lake near Longstock, Stockbridge

Part of a beautiful nature reserve in the river Test valley, this secluded private estate lake has very clear water. It's linear 2+ acres are lined with reed beds and woodland as well as ample access to the water for the fly fisherman. This gives a very secluded feel and offers some sanctuary to the wildlife. It flows slowly and is comparable to fishing a meandering stretch of river due to its shape. It is very well stocked with both brown a rainbow trout to double figures and has an amazing fishing lodge on the bankside. This lake offer very good sport on the dry fly.
