Time sure flies, its five years since the Riddell’s took over the fishing at Leighton Reservoir and the fish farm at Swinton. Leighton Reservoir takes a lot of looking after, keeping it stocked to a level so that it provides good sport, not too easy and not too hard, judging from the catch returns we do, dare I say have quite a number of happy fishermen! At the end of the day, it’s you, the anglers that make the place what it is, so thank you to all of you who come and fish. Even the most experienced angler has bad days, but even on the days where you do not actually catch trout, Leighton Reservoir is a beautiful peaceful place to sit and watch the world go by. Earlier this month we launched a new website, a group one with loads of information about each of our sites, Swinton and Bessy Beck trout farms, Leighton Reservoir and Bessy Beck trout fishery, please take a look and let us know what you think. www.leightonflyfishing.co.uk Over the past five years we have been building our stock on the farm, and we are now able to provide high quality fish for re stocking other fisheries. We are seeking new customers to add to the ones we already service. If you are a member of any club or syndicate who run a trout fishery please contact us for a competitive quote, we can supply various sizes of trout.
