At 2½ acres Bank House is only a small water,
but it has been carefully planned and designed with
fly fishing and wildlife in mind. A total of twelve
small islands are scattered over the water giving
the fishery a network of slow swims and pools. The
water flows evenly around the lake before exiting
from one of three outlets. This means that there
are few if any ‘dead’ areas where the
water can warm in summer and become low in oxygen.
It also means that the trout movements around the
are widespread and determined only
by the availability of food. The islands and
the vegetation break the line of sight for the
so that even when the fishery is full with 16
fishermen it does not feel crowded and gives a
privacy with plenty of space available for the
