Fly fishing in English Stillwaters with Clubfish World

Fly fishing English Stillwaters

Still Water Fishing in the U.K. is generally agreed to be the best in the Europe and by far the best is to be found in England itself.

The angler is spoilt for choice from the intimate, gin-clear chalkstream fed venues of southern England to the mighty, nature reserve reservoirs to be found all over the country.

Nowhere else in Europe can offer the combination of such stunning environments and highest quality fishing.

English still waters are renown for the quality of their fish stocks  

English still waters lakes and reservoirs are renown for the quality of their fish stocks - and for all year sport, king of the water has to be the hard fighting, tail-walking Rainbow Trout.

Many waters now practice catch and release but it still a contentious subject and debates continue between scientists authoritative bodies, and fishery managers and owners.

Whatever the rules for an individual fishery, one thing is still constant - the magnificent quality of fishing.

large Brown Trout pile on the pounds  

On most smaller clear water stalking lakes you can fish all year round.

Some venues incorporate stretches of chalk streams, which if they house grayling you can also fish throughout the winter.

Autumn can bring on the particularly spectacular sport of fry bashing, when large Browns pile on the pounds to take them through the winter.
