Torre Trout Farms Ltd

Fish worth getting your tackle out for!

Torre Trout Farms Ltd are three fish farms located in Somerset, United Kingdom. | Producers of Tiger Trout, Sparctic Trout, Brown Trout, Somerset Blues and Rainbow Trout

The Sparctics are coming!

After 3 years of care and specialist husbandry the Sparctics are finally ready to be stocked. 

Combining the bright yellow, pink and orange spots from the Arctic char and the amazing patterns of the Brook Trout this truly is a beautiful fish.

Fishing tips 

The feeding habit and behaviour point towards a deeper feeding fish, we have noticed that the Goldens in the same ponds feed around 12 inch’s higher in the water and although we can see them aggressively feeding they rarely break the surface.

The picture above does not give the Sparctic enough credit for its dazzling colours, however you can make out the Brook markings by its dorsal fin.  

Wessex Water. 

These fish have been exclusively grown to be stocked into the brilliant Wessex water reservoirs of Hawkridge and Clatworthy. The special relationship that we have developed over the years with Wessex and their dedicated rangers can only benefit fishermen and the fishing community as a whole. 

All of us here at Torre hope you enjoy catching  them!

The Sandy trout

The elegant Sandy trout are growing well despite the warm summer weather and reduced water flows. Yet another different cloured trout and basically a rainbow trout with colours in between a rainbow and a golden. Like all unusual strains they are difficult to farm and fragile to handle.

The pail complexion of the scales makes this trout true to it's not so original name.

We are pleased to give our customers (and in turn their customers) more choice and excitment of catching something beautiful and different. 

They are now up to size, however we have limited stock available, if you would like some, please order early to avoid disappointment!

The Golden Ticket

So we now rear the beautiful Golden trout, this is a story of love and hate (or dislike).

Love of the sight of these majestic animals gliding in the glistening water, the excitement the thrill when it surfaces and realise you really have hooked something special and different. 

Dislike from the fisherman that says they look like goldfish or golden orfe  (they don't) and have no interest in catching a "ornamental fish".

Although they are harder to farm than the bog standard Rainbow trout, here at Torre we really have taken to them and there seems to be a cunning escapee in most ponds!

Whether you chose to release, keep or even fish for these magical trout the choice is yours, but if your lucky enough to catch one and pose for a photo you will always remember catching that Golden ticket.
