Hotel Endsleigh is a member of the historic Endsleigh Fishing Club and as such can offer guests access to some of the best salmon fishing in England. With eight miles of bank along the River Tamar, guests can fly fish for salmon and sea trout every day of the fishing season (15th March to 15th October). The bank is divided into 6 beats which are fished in rotation throughout the season.
The hotel has all the fishing equipment needed for two people to have a wonderful day by the river. If you are already an experienced fisherman you are welcome to bring your own equipment. We also have a wonderful and skillful ghillie (John Dennis) who can show you to your beat, give you tips on the best way to catch that salmon or even show you the rudiments of casting if you are a complete beginner. If you feel the need for more than an hour’s guidance then personal fishing tuition can be provided at an extra charge and by prior arrangement. Please note that these beats are primarily for fly-fishing. Salmon is the main catch but sea trout, brown trout and grayling can also be caught.
The responsibility to have a licence is that of the angler. Licences must be obtained before fishing and can be obtained from the Post Office, by phone on 0344 800 5386, or from www.gov.uk/get-a-fishing-
Pre-booking is essential. Please note that occasionally the River Tamar is un-fishable due to heavy rain on the moor the day before. No charges for fishing are made in these circumstances.
