“Today I was able to see first-hand how exciting businesses such as Rutland Water Fly Fishing Adventures are ensuring that Rutland Water maintains its reputation as a hub of tourism across the country. As a region, we can be extremely proud that tourists come all over the world to visit England’s smallest county, and long may it continue!”

“It’s great that a local politician is taking an interest in what Rutland Water has to offer. We have the best trout fishing in the UK right here in Rutland, the best county in England, with customers coming from all around the world to experience it.”
