Fly tying is an interesting and important part of fly fishing. Getting the flies right/matching the hatch can have a significant impact on a successful day’s fishing, or otherwise. Our good friend and regular visitor to Frensham, Tim Glass (pictured) demonstrated his excellent skills at a small event we held recently. For more information please feel free to contact me.

We are pleased to advise that we are holding our ticket prices for the next few months before we review them again. By doing so, we are absorbing the cost increases that we are experiencing ourselves……….’every little helps’ as they say. With more favourable weather in the pipeline, please be assured that we are gearing ourselves up to offer the best possible fishing conditions for our visitors. We look forward to seeing you at Frensham soon.
Whilst reflecting on the year that has just passed, a very big thank-you to everyone that visited Frensham in 2023. Looking ahead, I can assure you that I will be doing all that I can to maintain (and improve) The Fishery this year. Good health and best wishes for 2024.
We were very pleased to host locally based society, The Illustrious Company of Trout Ticklers (TICOTT), once again this year at Frensham. 14 seasoned anglers came along last weekend and enjoyed a full days fly fishing in more favourable weather conditions than last year, when it dropped down to minus 5 degs! On conclusion of proceedings, the much coveted annual trophy (photographed) was duly presented along with some vouchers to allow those winners to return to Frensham in the New Year. We are very grateful that this most amiable group have selected Frensham over the years and very much hope they continue to do so.
As well as hanging up our stockings this year, we already have been stocking the Lakes in the run up to Christmas. To get into the Christmas spirit we are also offering coupons which make ideal gifts for family and friends Book Fishing – Frensham Trout Fishery and will be offering a 10% discount on all ticket prices, from Tuesday 19.12.23 to Sunday 31.12.23 incl. Simply use the code VOUCHXMAS23 when making your booking. Best wishes for the Festive Season to all of our visitors to Frensham, both old and new. Thank you for your great support in 2023.
As well as stocked fish, we are very fortunate at Frensham to have wild brown trout. Most are pretty small, but occasionally you can catch bigger wild fish like those in the 2 photos attached. Both these were caught by emerging buzzers last Friday in Heron and Meadow.
With cooler weather and good water conditions, there are some great fly fishing opportunities at Frensham throughout the autumn and winter months. Don’t forget to turn your clocks back on 28th October, come along and visit us, and brighten up your day during the shorter daylight hours*. The accompanying photos will hopefully help whet your appetite………… * during November – February PM ticket holders will be able to arrive at 12.00 midday
