Barlow Fishery - Open all year for trout, carp and coarse day tickets

Barlow Trout and Coarse and carp Fishery is set in 50 acres of beautiful secluded valley on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District and quite close to the South Yorkshire border.

Comprising of three trout lakes, four coarse lakes, a specialist carp lake,  a fresh water brook, holiday cottages and a camping club site, the fishery is situated only four miles from Chesterfield and ten miles from Sheffield city centre.  Day tickets are available for fly fishing from £15 per day and a full day on the coarse lakes will cost £5. Carp fishing costs £10 for two rods and overnight fishing is permitted at a cost of £10.  Usually, the trout lakes are re-stocked on a weekly basis from our own hatchery and the fish are normally introduced at between 1.5 and 2 lbs.

Facilities include ample car parking and toilets    Fly fishing tuition can be arranged and general advice is always freely available.

Due to our hard standing paths and roads, the fishery remains practically mud free, even after the heaviest rain.   Disabled anglers will find flat and easy access to the coarse lakes.

Barlow lakes are open all year from dawn to dusk.

Caution - Deep water

Children under 12 must be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult at all times.

The World of Donald McGill

Currently running, the Fisherman’s Friend cafe is staging a large exhibition of Donald McGill’s saucy seaside postcards, mainly produced early last century.

The display includes genuine cards sent direct from the trenches during the first world war.

Everybody is welcome - there’s nothing too blue or offensive.
