Bailiff And Experienced Fisherman

Owen is a very keen fisherman and he prefers coarse fishing over the many other branches of the sport, having fished in lakes from all over the UK and other very popular and well established fisheries he has now decided to settle down here at Trapp Fishery as “nothing can beat the peace and tranquillity that this beautiful lake provides”.


He is very enthusiastic and you will find Owen at the fishery every morning from about 09.00 hours. Owen is more than keen to pass on any fishing tips to newcomers and the more seasoned fishermen.
