In 2014 New Mills had over 25 individual anglers win a spot in our annual Troutmaster fish-off.

The competition is to be held this Friday and Saturday from 09.30. As a result the fly lake will be closed to non-competitors for these 2 days...apologies for any inconvenience.

Let's hope for better weather than last year, where torrential rain led to very high, muddy, fast flowing waters!

This years winner will represent New Mills at the national fish-off at Grafham Water in September.

Good luck to all.....tight lines.

Stopped here for a light lunch and we were thrilled with what we found. Beautifully kept. Perfect setting. The food was superb, and very efficiently served by great staff. We will be back.
(Can't vouch for the fishing, but there were certainly plenty of people having a go!)

Fly fished here a few times now & always had an excellent day, there's some big fish in here to tempt you, also a smaller lake for kids to fish, great tackle shop with advice on flies, rods, clothing & techniques etc to try, also a brilliant cafe to get hot or cold food & drinks which is well appreciated. Great time, every time !! TripAdvisor-logo
