Open House at Grafham Water
Saturday 19 February

Come and meet Anglian Water’s fisheries team from 10am to 3pm. Talk to the representatives from Hardy, Sonik Sports, Snowbee, Guide Fishing and Flash Attack about their new tackle and clothing ranges. It’s a great opportunity to talk about the season, get some help with casting techniques and see the latest fly tying techniques. 

More investment for anglers
We are pleased to take delivery of another wheelyboat from the Wheelyboat Trust at Grafham Water.  The Grafham anglers will recognise it as a 16ft Rutland boat.  Its hydraulic lifting platform enables wheelchair users to board the boat from the pontoon via a small ramp.

Also look out for new Coulam 15 and 16 boats on all our waters during 2011/12. 

A new pontoon section with new rubber fendering will be installed at Grafham Water prior to the start of the season as part of the pontoon improvement programme.

Season permits
A wide range of season permits, offering excellent value, will be on sale at our fishing lodges from 19 January
