About the Fishery
Backney Fishery is now under new ownership. Thank you to all angers who have enjoyed the stunning location and tranquility of the fishery over many years. Existing bookings will remain in place, but no further bookings are to be taken at present. Please note new contact details.
Welcome to Backney Fishery - a beautiful stretch of the River Wye consisting of both Upper and Lower beats for prime salmon and coarse fishing. This stunning, scenic area of outstanding natural beauty is tucked away, in Foy near Ross-on-Wye. We are very proud that it has been in the family for several generations and feel privileged to be able to continue to share it with those passionate about fishing.
Almost one and a half miles of double bank fishing (accessible only from one bank), Backney Fishery is situated a few miles upstream from Ross-on-Wye. The river is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and we work to protect the wildlife whilst creating access to a superb stretch of coarse and salmon fishing.
