Lincoln Feather Benders and Fly Fishers

Fly tying and game fishing for all

Lincoln Feather Benders and Fly Fishers

The Lincoln Feather Benders  was established in 1992 by Reverend R Spaight and a group of fly tyers from the Lincoln area to meet through the winter months for evening fly tying sessions and chat. something that continues today providing tuition for beginners and an opportunity to meet guest speakers and tyers.

Since 2017 the Club has managed its own private water by agreement with Thorpe on the Hill Parish Council and welcomes members of all ages and abilities from the local area.

We have a summer programme of at least six away days on still waters and rivers and an annual Club day pitting members against one another

Eric East Memorial Lake

Brief description of fishery:

The Eric East Memorial Lake is a former gravel working of about 3.4Ha (8.5 acres) With gently sloping margins and a depth of up to 30′.

It is regularly stocked with Rainbow and Browns throughout the summer season with many fish overwintering and growing on.  Some good specimen fish can be banked with 4-5lbs being recorded from time to time.

Perch occasionally come to the fly during the winter and a good population of roach provide fry to supplement the natural insect life in the gin clear water

Fishing is fly only
