The Milemead team.
Milemead Fisheries is owned and run by brothers Andrew and Paul Evenden.
They bought the rough grazing land known as Milemead in 1986.
Between them, they have built up the fishery from scratch, which is no mean feat
when you realize that when they both started their dream, they were just 22 and 18 years old.
Even now 33 years on the Fishery is still evolving.
The Fishery is located in a quiet valley approximately 2 miles outside of Tavistock, West Devon.
With 5 coarse waters in total we can offer something for everyone,
from the complete beginner to the most serious specimen carp angler.
We have a well stocked fishing tackle and bait shop, selling top branded stock,
snacks, cold drinks and most of the items that you left at home.
Please note that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are sorry, tackle hire is not currently available.
Ladies, Gents and a disabled access toilet are located adjacent to our shop.
We also have a new separate shower room, with coin operated shower £1 per 10 minutes.
We are also have a separate dish washing room, next door to the shower room.
