Default Barn Elms Trout Fishery

Has anyone ever fished here? I think it's a perfect spot for a beginner. The fishery is located between Reading and Newbury.

We gave it a try and had a ball. Its a stock filled lake (filled each week) and there are tons of brown and rainbow trout here.

Have you given it a try? If you are in the area, you should!

The really nice thing about this place is that if you are totally new to fly fishing and don't have any equipment, they can get you set up with one of their instructors. Great for a beginner.

I agree, it is a great place to get started. They offer instruction, equipment, and loads of fun (and fish of course). My daughter enjoys going here. I'm just teaching her to fly fish.

It sounds like a great spot to take my son and teach him how to fly fish. At this point, I'm not sure if he's totally interested so I don't want to spend the money on equipment.

That is why it's perfect, you can rent it and there are people there to help and give instruction. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on all new fishing gear for my daughter. I let her use my stuff (older stuff), then when she liked it enough, I got her some of her own for her birthday.

Fly fishing can be such an expensive sport to get into. That's why I like to take beginners to places where they can rent equipment. I have a hard time letting someone else borrow my equipment.

That's a good tip. Maybe I should familiarize myself with other types of equipment so I can improve my techniques and get my first catch.

Skipper I'm with you, I never let anyone borrow my fishing equipment. I mean of course my daughter or my wife could borrow it though.
