Come and meet Anglian Water’s fisheries team from 10am to 3pm. This is a great opportunity to meet with fishery staff. Flash Attack Flies and Greys will also be present. Peter Hartley our senior coach will be on hand offering casting sessions. Light refreshments will be served, copies of our new Hooked 2015 magazine will be available and season permits will be on sale.
Fisheries Manager Jon Marshall says “We are really looking forward to meeting anglers for a chat about the new season. One of the highlights will be the drawer from last season’s ticket returns which will see one lucky angler winning a Gold Season ticket to fish the 2015 season for free!”
Ravensthorpe opens Friday 27 February
Plans for the new season are well under way. Pike anglers have already been out on the water with fish being taken on the lure as well as dead baits.
Trout fishing commences on 27 February with expectations high for some good sized fish.
Grafham Water opens Friday 6 March
Rutland Water opens Friday 13 March
It will be an early start to the season with Rutland Water opening on Friday 13 March. Stocking will commence very early in March with Rainbows and Browns.
Any overwintered fish showing at the start of the season should be in tremendous condition, hopefully providing anglers with the exceptional sport that was witnessed throughout the 2014 season.
