Trout Fishing on Farmoor Reservoir for anyone interested to having a go at Fly Fishing for Trout !!!!! ????


Recommended Posts

Hello, as above, i have been fishing the above for many  years and had been a member of FFF Club when we fished Number 1 Reservoir , i was looking at going again this year to fish on Number 2 which is a Day Ticket Venue so i thought there maybe a PW member who would like come on a day with me to learn Basic Casting etc and hopefully catch a trout or 2 , Welcome to bring a Partner or friend , I have the Rods/reels, etc oh and big landing net 🤔😊, it can be good fishing on a nice warm breezy day, i will not fish myself but help you enjoy a day out trout fishing, Partners or friends/ family not wishing to fish there is a nice walk around the Res or Bird Watching, There is also a nice Cafe, Have a look on Google maps, There are various tickets, Day/ Afternoon/ Evening but depends on time permitting if you have a fair drive to Oxford, i would prefer a week day or maybe a Sunday , The weather is a factor in Trout Fishing eg To Hot is no good, so Best is mid late April, May/ June/ July August if not to hot, September October, Oh i am not one of those expert trout fishers you see only the Telly , i just like to enjoy time out fishing and fresh air, a flask of coffee and sarnie and a bit of cake 😊, if of interest let me know

A very kind offer and I hope someone jumps at the great opportunity you are giving.  Haven't fished Farmoor for maybe 15+ years, as it is quite a drive from the Fens, and I would need to by-pass Grafham, Rutland etc etc to get there !!

I hope someone takes it up  🐟

Do you know what, maybe it's not too far from me! If you'll have me OPP I'd love to make the trip, if we can make it work?

Hello, Yes that will be Ok,  let me know when you would like to visit but the weather needs to improve over the next few weeks, there is more chance of catching a trout when the days are a bit warmer and trout start to feed in mid water or top water rather than sulking on the bottom , the A 420 from Swindon would be a good route as it passes the turn off to Farmoor, Will keep you posted on a Fishing day

Thank you for this kind offer.

I live in Minster Lovell so around ten miles from Farmoor and would love to join you and learn to fly fish. I am retired so can go almost anytime except Tuesdays.

Thank you, appreciate it.

I work full time so will need a bit of notice to book the day off. Thursdays or Fridays generally good for me if they suit you? No rush, happy to wait till the weather warms up and the trout are hungry! My wrist is recovering from surgery anyway, so possibly the longer the better. Let me know, and thanks again for the offer.
