  • 7 minute video interview with 2 local fishermen shot by myself
  • Trout fishing at Draycote reservoir (brown and rainbow trout) from the bank or from boat on Draycote Water - 5 mile circumference reservoir 600 acres lake). Fishing is from 2nd March to 30th November (2018). On the official, very comprehensive, Draycote fly fisheries website. See also the weekly reports. Draycote is very exposed, so there is usually a breeze which is ideal on hot summer days. On overcast days or days where it is windy elsewhere make sure you wrap up well because on a day when it's windy everywhere else, there may be be a howling gale at Draycote! It's recommended to phone ahead and book a parking place for your car if bank fishing. There are 32 boats with outboard motors also available. Gutting room available for your catch. Cafe and toilets.
  • Fishing Tackle shop in Dunchurch This is a very nice fishing tackle shop, just a few minutes away from Draycote.
