Barlow Trout and Coarse Fishery

Barlow Trout and Coarse Fishery


Mill Farm,
S18 7TJ


Barlow Fishery offers anglers a choice of fly fishing or coarse angling in separate lakes. The Fishery can arrange coarse fishing lessons and professional fly fishing tuition for school parties, small groups, birthday treats or on a one-to-one basis.

Due to the hard standing paths and roads, the fishery remains practically mud free, even after the heaviest rain allowing easy access to the coarse lakes.

English breakfasts are served at peak times at the log cabin snack bar, which can be found close to the coarse lakes' car park. Most of the food is home cooked and contains mainly local produce.
