Beat 37: Fernworthy (Evening Ticket)


About Beat 37: Fernworthy (Evening Ticket)

An Evening Ticket with a Two Fish Limit. This has become the most consistent fishery across the South West Lakes Trust waters. Set on the highest points on Dartmoor, the lake offers traditional fly fishing for natural and stocked brownies. A beautiful reservoir and stunning fishing, with fish happy to come to dries or wets. During the last few seasons anglers have been catching in excess of 10 fish on regular occasions. The dry fly fishing can be superb with the sedge hog fly an absolute must in your fly box. We stock a range of sizes from 7 inch to 2lbs. Last year several brownies caught at 3lb and another at 3lbs 1oz.
