Blithfield Anglers is a trout fly fishery at Blithfield Reservoir close to the village of Abbots Bromley in the heart of rural Staffordshire.
The reservoir, owned by South Staffs Water, offers over 11 miles of superb bank trout fishing, as well as excellent ‘top of the water’ sport from a fleet of motor boats and is a popular site in the Midlands for fly fishing. The entire Blithfield Estate has been designated with SSSI Status which means it is recognised as a very special place with parcels of ancient woodland, a wide variety of flora and fauna including wading and over-wintering wildfowl and it is a protected habitat.
Blithfield Anglers is open for full day or flexible 4 hour permits as well as offering a range of season permit options and benefits . Contact us for more information.
Please note – there is currently no pike or perch fishing available except on organised days with Staffordshire Predator Angling Group.
