This list of local syndicates and clubs is compiled by Peter Cockwill as a guide to what exists rather than what is available in this area. Most of these fisheries require an introduction from an existing member or being on a long waiting list but the waters are usually lightly fished, beautifully kept in very private grounds where a high standard of conduct is expected.
