South West Fishing for Life





July 15th SWFFL we hosted  a cookery day at Wimbleball lake  with celeberaty chef Ryan Riley from Life Kitchen.  He demonstrated recipes for people who have had cancer treatments and struggle with enjoying food again. It was a very enjoyable day and evryone learnt something about taste!

The Cornwall/Siblyback groups lead coach has had to retire due to his health.We ar hoping to find a replacement.



We are always looking for Level 2 coaches to help with the growing groups and volunteers to make cups of tea and chat with people. If you would like to get involved please contact  Patrick Chairman  ,  Sally fishing co-ordinator  or Gillian -secretary   Thank you..









Blagdon Lake

We have now moved the Chew Valley group to Blagdon Lake.

During the winter months the group meet for fly tying at a different venue, please ring Gillian on 01398371244 for the address if you are interested in joining in.The Blagdon group meets on the 4th Saturday of each month from 10am -1pm and finishes with tea in the lodge. 



Blagdon sits upon the Mendip hills in the historic county of Somerset in the heart of the West Country and commands a stunning view of the Yeo Valley. It can be approached by road from various directions and is little more than 30 minutes drive from Bath, Bristol, Wells or Weston-super-mare.



Route planners

If you’re trying to reach the lake using a route planner the nearest postcode we can find is BS40 7UN, that of Blagdon Visitor Centre, which is next to the lake. If you’re aiming for the Fishing Lodge (01761 462 527), when you reach the centre’s entrance turn on to the road (Park Lane) directly opposite it. The Lodge’s gateway is a little way along before the road narrows and is on the left

If you would like to come and see what it is all about please email or tel. Gillian 01398371244
