Kennick in May

Our May event at FishabilityUK with a fly rod takes us down to the Westcountry, to fish one of the first reservoirs in Europe ever to be stocked with rainbow trout! Built in 1884, Kennick fishery is a few miles north of the village of Hennock on the east side of Dartmoor, with the fishery run by the South West Lakes Trust since 2000.
