Jacklands Fishing Lakes

Report Beginner

Session rating 5 out of 5

Only just took up fly fishing, used parklands as a base, the owners are very generous and let me come and go as i please on a day ticket due to work commitments. A perfect place to practice, today on my second go fly fishing i landed a 3lb rainbow. As i only get an hour a so a time i was chuffed, i will keep practising here for the foreseeable future until im good enough for the reservoirs. Thank you.
