After being away for the past week I’ve been itching to get out and fish. I was hoping for a couple of hours on the river, however the recent rain made that not possible. So me and my dad ventured out to Stocks Reservoir near Slaidburn in Lancashire. It is the largest fly fishery in the north-west of England and is stocked with hard fighting Rainbow, Brown and Blue trout. At stocks you have the choice to fish from the boat or the bank. giving you the opportunity to explore 4 and a half miles of shore line. while boat fishing gives you 350 acres of open water to go at.
