Welcome to Rutland Gillies 2017



A very merry Christmas and a happy new year to all of the followers of Rutland Gillies.

We hope to see you all again next year.


Hi Welcome to Rutland Gillies 2017

As you all know Rutland gillies is run for you the anglers and therefor a none profit making site. So what we put on the site are the reports from all the top waters in the land, as sent to us, by them, If any reports are not wholly correct, then we apologise in advance, but can only print that which we are sent. Most reports are sent weekly to us, so you don't have to wait six week's to read the fishing report from any water in the press. We pride ourselves in being as up to date as possible in the time available.

We now have a page for all competition fishing, FISHERMEN'S NEWS. If you would like to advertise free, any fishing competition please send me the details so we can let the anglers see it first.

  Over the years myself and my very good team have taken out a lot of novice and good anglers here at Rutland Water and many other waters through out country.

This year as I am semi retired, I will hopefully have more time to take you out to catch fish.  Rutland Water is a very large lake and fishing it for the first time can be a daunting prospect, But if you go out with one of our Ghillies we will be able to point you in the right direction from the onset, as we fish the water every day and know how the areas are fishing, we can give you a quality day out. Buzzers, nymphs or even the Rudder we can give you a day to remember.

If you require anywhere to stay we have a list of local b&b's and hotels that can put you up. Stamford, Oakham and many other villages that have pubs and b&b's in area  all a short drive from Rutland Water.

Please call to book your day with us as soon as possible for individual or group block bookings.

Rutland Waer  opens on the 13th March 2015, we start on that day for bookings, so why wait, book up with us as soon as you can, so we can give that day to remember.

Please call 07973954552 for prices, availability and booking.

We here at Rutland Gillies have been very busy bringing you the very best in fly floatant. For a 30ml bottle the price is £5 plus p&p. This bottle has a small brush so that when you take the fly out of the water just brush a little of the dust into the fly and it will float again with no hesitation. This dust works on nymphs, and all dry flies on the market today and it will not harm the fly in any way. To order your fly floatant please pm me. Many thanks Ziggy. Rutland Gillies

UK Weather

  • Cooler weather on the way for November
    One of the warmest October months on record gives way to a mild start for November. It will turn colder as we move through the month and this will bring some nightime frosts. It looks set to be a rather unsettled month with showers and longer spells of rain.
