Weycroft Bridge Fishery

Weycroft Bridge Fishery is a privately owned stretch of the river Axe between Weycroft Bridge and the railway bridge nearly a quarter of a mile downstream.

We are situated in a very peaceful and tranquil setting, day tickets are limited unless a small group of friends would like to fish the venue together.

“One of the best kept secrets in Devon”  Set in approximately 4 acres of grazing land, bordered by the railway line.

*Enjoy a day’s fly fishing while your partner enjoys  one of our holistic therapies at affordable prices.



As per Environment Agency recommendations the fishery is “Catch and Release” only and barbless hooks must be used at all times. Day tickets must be booked in advance as there are no day tickets available on the bankside.


A current E.A. rod licence must be made available for inspection when requested if fishing for salmon, sea trout or brown trout.
