Reepham Fishery, just outside the historic town of Reepham, is regarded as one of Norfolk's premier coarse fisheries, having been established for many years on spring-fed lakes. Recently an extensive programme of improvements was completed to create a popular venue for both day ticket fishing, and fishing holidays.
Match Lake - a 1 acre lake opened in the Spring of 2008, with 20 pegs.
