Canals Trust

The Canals Trust have over 2,000 miles of waterway to look after for the many interest groups who use them. With so much water it is no wonder that fishing is high on the list of activities.

The Trust issues a Waterway Wanderers Permit that entitles you to fish on an impressive amount of water throughout England and Wales (for just £20).

Ravensnest Trout Fishery

The fishery located in woodland near Tintern is actually part of the river Angiddy with weirs separating it into three fishing pools covering 7 acres. These weirs act as waterfalls oxygenating the water and acting as a magnet to fish. It's only the second fishery I have found that has water flowing through it and if fish hang about for a while they will be fitter rather than fatter which is great sport.

Stocked weekly with rainbows, blues and tigers the fishery also has good stocks of brown trout to about 4lbs.

The Pump House has all the facilities you might want with a free cuppa available but you can also buy other hot and cold drinks and food. They may even be licensed now. There is also a tackle shop in the pump house. Open 7 days a week from 7.30 am to 9.30 pm they offer catch and keep and catch and release tickets and an "After Work" evening ticket. For a quid you can, if lucky, catch a tag fish and win the kitty.
