4 Day Festival 2015

This year's 4 day festival will be fished from Friday 14th August to Monday 17th August 2015. Further details can be found by clicking here

We try to keep the anglers on each lake low in order to provide the best fishing.  The sections are not always the same each day too so you don'tfish with the same people all weekend. All the venues are close together and you have plenty of time after the draw, but for transport reasons anglers travelling together can be placed in the same secion, please ask when booking.

Please email or call 01603 759624 to book in.  Accomodation can be arranged, please get in touch.


We hope you find our site informative and welcome any feedback. Should you have any queries about fishing in Norfolk then please get in contact we will be pleased to assist and look forward to welcoming you for a day's fishing.
