Near Durrington, a two lake spring fed fishery on the banks of the Avon, 3 and 5 acres each stocked with rainbows 2lbs to double figures.
There is also a 1 mile stretch of the Upper Avon for brown trout and grayling. Brown trout April to October, grayling October to March. Frank Sawyer country, for me the excitement of the induced take on gin clear water never fades over time. Don't you just hate it when a stockie scoots in and takes your fly before the biggie you were stalking gets to it? Grrrrrr!
There is a club house and facilities for disabled anglers.

The Wye threads its way through both Wales and England and was histiriaclly one of the best salmon rivers in the country. No longer the river iit once was the Wye is recovering and it is hoped that the demise of the Irish drift nets will restore the river to its legendary state. It is recovering too and what can we expect when it comes good? Stopping for a pint and a meal in a pub in Hoarwithey the evidence of past glories was displayed in cases on the bar wall, salmon to make the mouth water and by reports the big uns are still about. Armastone near Hoarwithy produced a 51lb fish, one of two to Mr Wynndham in 1914, the second one was just a 40+ pounder.
