Exmoor has a number of rivers, lakes and reservoirs, many of which provide good fly fishing opportunities. Rivers to choose from include the Barle, Exe and Lyn. Exebridge Trout Fishery ponds are within walking distance from the Inn and provide an excellent day’s trout fishing. The Anchor Inn has teamed up with a number of local qualified fishing guides who can offer a full and comprehensive package of lessons as well as advice on where to fish and when. Again within walking distance of the Inn is a large carp pond and tickets can be obtained nearby. The Inn also has fishing rights on the river from the gardens, which are free to residents.
