“Fishing heaven”

Written on: 22/11/2020 by Redmunds (1 review written)

Docklow Pools is quite simply the best fishing holiday you can have in the uk when you stay here you can catch virtually every species of fish in freshwater. private Stretchers of the river wye and other local rivers . nines pools to choose from snake lakes stock pond tench lake specimen lake full of quality catfish I’ve caught two 35 pounders this year alone handsome grass carp mirrors and commons average size 15 to 30 pounds all the lakes you can catch double figure fish from . The scenery and wildlife is amazing so established is this wonderful area of Herefordshire that’s where some people get docklow wrong. They expect everything sparking new and shiny. But the beauty of docklow is lost on some folk who expect luxury around every corner some of docklows buildings were built a long time ago but docklow is not rundown or dirty like a minority like to say . It’s quirky and enchanting with some of the best customer service you will ever experience in your life across the whole complex. The restaurant pub coffee shop are outstanding. The meals are lovingly prepared and presented and tasty to boot the prices are very fair . The tackle shop puts most high street chains to shame plus they will tell you which lakes are fishing best they’ve got a full sized snooker table tennis golf . The accommodation is varied from basic fisherman’s lodges to higher end plushness me and my five friends stay in the fisherman’s lodges and always found them more than Adequate always clean and everything works . The problem with some people is some of the lakes can be tricky to fish if you haven’t been before and they give up then write a bad review some of docklows fish have been in the pools a long time not like some pop up commercials and can get wise and big so you have to use different baits and techniques or scale down a bit .but if you ask other residents tackle shop or owners they will help they’re a lovely bunch . There’s some lovely couples and groups who return every year there’s a great friendly atmosphere that you just dont get anywhere else . The nearest shops are in Leominster Aldi coop Tesco’s a lovely town with lots of history and antique shops well worth a visit . All in all if you want a relaxing stay in picturesque surroundings good food good company great fishing docklow takes some beating five stars from me faultless
