Wimbleball Lake, Exmoor, Somerset

Wimbleball lake 400 acres of water lies like a jewel amidst rolling moor land and thickly wooded areas. This is where South West Fishing For Life was born. In 2008 on a cold but sunny April day we held a Taster Day with just 5 ladies!


As the years have gone by we have grown.
