Blithfield Anglers is a trout fishery on 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 42 powered boats. In addition to being a popular site in the Midlands for fly fishing, Blithfield also offers high quality pike fishing.
Blithfield Anglers is open for full day or flexible 4 hour permits as well as offering a range of season ticket options and benefits for those interested in membership. For more information on all of our facilities and fishing options click on the links at the top of the home page

Continuing on from late August's wonderful conditions, September began with exceptional 'top of the water' sport which the Reservoir is renowned for. EDF Energy held a match at the start of the month which returned a rod average of just under 14!! Bags recorded continued to reach double figures with several specimen rainbows of 5lb being caught. On the 18th September visiting rod Mr. W. Jordan recorded a bag of 23 fish whilst on 20th September Dr. I. Greaves had 20 fish to his boat using dry fly tactics. As the month drew to an end the splendid September sport continued apace with the banks fishing as well as the boats and rising fish clearly visible all across the Reservoir. October forecasts thus far favour another month of near-perfect conditions for boat and bank anglers alike.
For anglers interested in Pike fishing at Blithfield Reservoir, John Davey has organised 2 weekends in February 2015. Please contact John directly for details on 07766 880718 or firstname.lastname@example.org
