About Woodford Fly Fishery

Situated in Carrickfergus, an historic Co. Antrim town, and nestled under the shadow of the famous Knockagh Monument, the fishery offers value-for-money fly fishing for both the beginner and more experienced angler.

Open 364 days a year, Woodford is a tranquil fishery set on a 7-acre site.  In addition to the main fly fishing lake, there is a smaller bait lake for worm-only fishing. Our well stocked shop supplies a comprehensive range of quality rods, reels, clothing, tackle and fly tying gear. You are welcome to visit and purchase in person. Alternatively why not log onto our ebay shop!

Weekly stocking of fish takes place all year round with fish from 1lb 8oz up to 17lb. In fact, in recent years, Woodford has become known for regular catches of specimens in the 6 to 10lb bracket. As well as rainbows, golden trout, blues and natural browns can all be taken on fly.

On site, our helpful staff are always on hand to make your fishing experience as enjoyable as possible. Please visit our Facebook page to find out more about Woodford.

Had a cracking day last week at woodford, caught a nice 2lb rainbow thanks to fishery member (Mark) who gave me a deadly fly which did the trick. The lunchtime fry was good too. Wouldn't it be nice if all fisheries were like Woodford! Looking forward to my next visit.
