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 32 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.
Tackle hire is available at £5 per day, per float rod and landing net.
Please note that the cost of a permit to fish is extra.
These rods are only suitable for use on the Carp N' Silvers Lake, or Canal and Canal Basin.
To avoid disappointment, please phone our shop in advance to reserve your rod, as they are popular.
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.
Anglers who want to fish the Carp N’ Silvers Lake, Canal or Canal Basin
who arrive before our shop opens are welcome to carry on and start fishing,
but kindly requested to come back and pay for their permit when our shop opens at 9 am.
Anglers who arrive after this time should purchase a permit before they start fishing.
All anglers for the Cat N’ Carp Lake or Specimen Carp Lake
