You could argue that Thames Water’s Farmoor reservoir complex is not the most attractive fishery in southern England. There are two reservoirs to choose from Farmoor 1 and Farmoor 2 . Farmoor 1 is a catch and release fishery – a huge bag of fish is often possible on this fishery and the average size is good. I have never fished 1 from a boat and generally fish from the bank at medium range with buzzers. I decided to fish Farmoor 2 from a boat on this occasion – the weather forecast was for light winds and mild temperatures. I also needed a few fish for the table. Hopefully, the fish would be up in the water and there would be a chance of some action on dries and buzzers. Both 1 and 2 are concrete bowls and although this sounds grim the reality is that the concrete surround has weathered into the landscape and the Farmoors are a good place to be in the right conditions. I have never been disappointed with the quality of the fishing.
