River Wharfe

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Tactics -

Prob­a­bly the most fa­mous of all York­shire’s fly-fish­ing rivers, this beat’s mix­ture of runs, pools, rif­fles, glides and pocket wa­ter lends it­self to all fly-fish­ing meth­ods. The club’s wa­ter starts just above Lin­ton step­ping stones, run­ning down­stream to Bar­den Bridge and it is mainly dou­ble bank. It holds both wild and some stocked brown trout and also grayling. Good num­bers of mayflies, stone­flies, case­less cad­dis and ter­res­trial in­sects are present and fish re­spond well in par­tic­u­lar to dry flies, nymphs or Spi­ders. AD­DRESS Burn­sall, near Skip­ton, North York­shire, BD23 6BU (brings you to the Red Lion). A de­tailed map of the beat can be found at the club web­site be­low.
