The scrolling links above will guide you to the main information about the fishery.


Heronbrook Fisheries are situated just off the A519 at Slindon, two miles from Eccleshall. Set in 25 acres of the beautiful Staffordshire countryside there are now SIX amazing pools for you to try. All were designed and built by the owner Neil Dale. The first and most established is the Specimen Pool opened in 1994, followed shortly after by the Match Pool. These two pools have now been combined to make a fabulous 65 peg water, the new name for this water is the 'Match Lake'

The Canal was designed and built in 1996 mainly to suite the pole angler. In 2003 the Bridge Pool was added. In 2003 the Island Pool was opened and the Canal was extended. Meadow Pool was added in 2004

The home of match fishing

Heronbrook proves to be a club anglers favourite. From April to October every year nearly all the pools are filled with club matches. Booking the pools needs careful planning as it is often needs a club to book the pools 2 years in advance. Neil's open matches have to be planned in the same manner.

For a few years now Heronbrook has been a favourite for Major Events too. AT/Maver Pairs, Fisho qualifiers, UK Individual Championships, AT Supercup, Drennan Super League, NFA Disabled National, NFA Womens National, Police National, Army National are just amongst a few that have regularly used in the past or planned for the future.

Heronbrook is also used for DVD and National Magazine features letting the angling stars show their methods and techniques on a variety of waters.
