Ultimate Big water fly fishing

Modern, still water, fly fishing on the historic and famous Grafham water.

Many methods of fly fishing used today were pioneered at Grafham.

Without doubt, Grafham offers the finest stillwater flyfishing in the UK. Multiple methods of fly fishing available on this water, from dry fly fishing, nymphing, pulling lures on a sinker and back drifting when the wind gets up. We offer both boat and bank fishing, the latter giving you the oppertunity to try the to the infamous 'Grafham shuffle' for huge shrimp feeding trout.
