Straid Fishery

These are exciting times at Co. Antrim's largest privately run fishery. We cater for all levels of angler and 2013 sees us expand our offering of fishing experiences:

  • Our Main Fly Fishing Lake
  • NEW - Discovery Fly Fishing Lake
  • NEW - Coarse Lake
  • NEW - Castaway Fly Fishing School

Fishery managers Derek & Ray are in their third year at the helm, and building a reputation for making superb quality fishing available to the public.
Concentrating our efforts on quality stocking, clean and comfortable facilities and competitive prices has seen anglers travel to us from near and far.

Banks and paths have been cleared to allow easy access to the lake's margins.  Anglers with restricted mobility can be transported by staff to their choice of fishing stand. Enjoy the comforts of home in our newly modernised tearoom where complimentary tea, coffee and microwave facilities are available. You are welcome to come in for a rest and browse our fishing books and magazines. Refurbished Ladies and Gents toilets are available 30 yds from the tearoom.

Our Tackle Shop offers Shakespeare, DIAWA, Marryat tackle as well as Veniard fly tying products. We are bringing online and mailorder prices to local anglers, together with the opportunity to 'try before you buy'!


OPEN to PUBLIC: Wednesday to Sunday 9.00am to dusk

PRIVATE BOOKINGS: Mon - Tues by prior arrangement
