Welcome to Trout Fishing @ Latchford Flyfishers, Now in our 31st year

January 2016

2015 was our 30th Anniversary of the founding of the club. This is a remarkable achievement for a small club like ours to be as strong now as it was back at the start.


The turnout at the 30th celebration meal stands testament to that.  We welcome new members, but there is a waiting list. Please contact us to discuss being added to the waiting list.

Brownie from the Lake

We are a small members club fishing on an idyllic lake nestled in the Rib Valley just to the north of Ware in Hertfordshire, very close to the Essex border. We fish a 3 acre stocked lake and have fishing on the River Rib between Latchford and Standon fords.


We are a FLY ONLY fishery and the fishing is available only to members of the club, we do not offer day tickets


The Lake is stocked with Brown and Rainbow Trout and we are open From March till the end of December.  The River fishes best in May and June and we lightly stock the River with Brown Trout.


The Lake fishes well March through to the heat of the summer, it is slow in July and August and as it cools down in the autumn the fishing takes off again normally sometime in September but this depends on the air temperature and when we get rainfall in the autumn.


We welcome new members and if you are interested E Mail Laurence Lock on
