Bank House Fly Fishery was opened in 1974 by local vet and his wife, David and Jan Dobson. The fishery is now owned and run by their son Ben and his wife Charlotte who also run Stocks Reservoir Fly Fishery.

At 2½ acres Bank House is only a small water, but it has been carefully planned and designed with fly fishing and wildlife in mind. A total of twelve small islands are scattered over the water giving the fishery a network of slow swims and pools. The water flows evenly around the lake before exiting from one of three outlets. This means that there are few if any `dead` areas where the water can warm in summer and become low in oxygen.
