Fishing in or around the New Forest is very attractive to Fishermen of all ages.

I am going to list a number of venues and contact details but as I am not a fisherman myself (although I had a taster day with Fish Wives and landed a beautiful Trout at Holbury Lakes)

Then for the lakes nearby.

Witherington Farm Fishery, Barford Lane, Downton. 4 disabled friendly lakes.

You could always borrow a fishing net from us and try and catch a tiddler from the Hucklesbrook that runs through the Old Orchard at Hucklesbrook Farm, New Forest Holiday Cottages. Sometimes it is just a trickle but other days it is full and fast, so be careful.
