Set on one of the highest points of Dartmoor, this picturesque reservoir offers traditional fly fishing for wild and stocked brown trout. They stock fish up to 4lbs with the average size being 10-12 inches. Fishing is from the bank only. Traditional dark fly patterns (Black Gnats, Bibios, Beetles, and Hoppers) as well as sedge patterns (Invicta) work well. Fish the margins and walk the banks to cover as much water as possible. ‘Catch and release' option available (barbless hooks to be used), otherwise up to 4 fish over 7" may be taken in a day.
