Have fished at Stafford Moor over the past number of years. This is a first class venue, very well stocked lakes set in stunning countryside. A great place to fish


Only been once. Even in all my years living in Devon I somehow over looked this place. Cracking venue some nice fish in the lakes there a lot of my friends and a couple of my team members fish it a lot. If your looking for a break they have amazing lodges too rent.


Supreme Baits Tester Richard Fisher had a cracking session taking over 20 fish topped by a 32lb mirror on the Supreme OA



As the weather starts to warm up begin your sesion casting a straight led to the islands with a hair rigged 11mm pellet and ping 4-6 8mm pellets over the top every 20-25 seconds. As the session progresses the fish will start to come up in the water now change to the pellet waggler fishing between 6 & 12 inches deep still pinging pellets over the top. Remember to keep pinging as you play the fish and try get tight to the island or on the top of bars. Have fun tight lines.
