Foxhills Fishery, Walsall
Foxhills Fishery was established in 1982 by the Bull family who are still the current owners. The other part of the business, Foxhills Riding School and Livery Stables on Beacon Road (Established in 1955) was sold in September, 2011 in order for the owners to devote more time to the Fishery.
A bungalow was built for the family to live on site which now affords a more secure place to fish, plus offering our anglers better amenities such as well maintained toilet facilities, a small shop and hot food service..
There are three pools, obviously very well stocked after a 30 year period of breeding and regular re-stocking. Our pools are checked and regulated in part by world famous Dr. Bruno Broughton who is the country’s leading ‘fish doctor’. There are, in general, the same type of fish in each pool, roach, bream, tench, rudd, perch and carp (commons, mirror etc. to double figures) However the small pool has a particularly good amount of quality tench and the upper pool has barbel. All the pools fish in equally good measure, but naturally every angler has his own preference (they do not always tell the truth about ‘best areas’ because they like to keep them to themselves!) it is often said that “if you can’t catch at Foxhills, then you should change your sport”.
