Wistlandpound Club – Visit Blagdon Lake

posted in: Game Fishing, Sidebar | 0

Wistlandpound Fly Fishing Club Members traveled to Blagdon Lake the birthplace of Stillwater Trout fishing in the UK. The day was probably the hottest of the year to that point with a clear blue sky and relentless hot sunshine blazing down upon the mirror calm lake. Far from ideal conditions for trout fishing and I don’t think anyone expected the fishing to be easy.

The fishing did prove challenging but England International Matt Kingdom and I managed five fish each all hard fighting rainbows with full tails.
