    Imarco, I hope your trip to fish for trout on the River Wharfe was a success. I'd be interested to know how you got on.

    Default Yorkshire's brown trout fishing season gets under way

    Keora,

    Still had in my mind to get back here for some info about our trip. Right now I am having a whisky tasting so not the best moment.

    For now have a look at our video...

    Cheers

    Great video Marco and glad I could be part of the venture. Who is that handsome chap @ 2:23??? He looks vaguely familiar...

    Back from a trip in Yorkshire Dales so maybe nice to share some of our adventures. We have fished from the 31st of May to Monday the 4th of June.

    The weather conditions were favorable. We did not see too much sun or real rain. We stayed at the Riverside Inn in Ilkley. Great hotel on the river Wharfe. Not really a nice place to walk directly into the water and go fishing because it is just too touristy there. A little further on (after buying a day ticket at our hotel from £ 11) we fished on Thursday and caught about five fish.

    Friday we fished in the Holme. Nice place with a lot of fish. Unfortunately the first fish dissolved. That was a big trout. That day about 20 fish caught.

    On Saturday jj took us to Addingham for a fishing day at the Wharfe. Beautiful place, beautiful pools interspersed with faster pieces. Really breathtakingly beautiful. The number of fish left something to be desired, but really a place to come back. The remembrance trees alongside the river makes it even a more special and respectful place, even more now when I think about that on this fathersday (donít know if you have this in England).

    On Sunday we found it hard to choose where to go. Ted wanted to buy an orvis superfine #4 so after a visit to Harrogate we drove to Pateley Bridge. Beautiful river called the Nidd. Narrow river with overhanging trees. There is not everywhere opportunities to wade through because of the depth but there are plenty of opportunities to fish off large pieces. The fish here has a lot of shelter from the overhanging trees and that is exactly the same as the activity on the surface. Regularly came fly on the water that were taken by the fish. Friend beaver was also fishing here. Great to see. Striking was the number of trouts of size for such a narrow stream. Permission for this stretch can be obtained from every corner of the street, like the spar in the town, 200 meters from the parking place where you can fish.

    Most of the fish have been caught on small CDC emergers and a small version of mayfly imitations. The thinner tippet the better the motto was.

    Now a number of weeks after this fantastic weekend a I still enjoy the experience.I have put my adventures of this trip on our Dutch fly fishing forum as well so you might find some more Dutchmen in your rivers in the future. Great to have so many chances to fish on a day ticket instead of only available yearly permits for locals. Hope it stays that way in the future.

    Thanks again for your tips and recommendations and a special thank you to JJ for taking us to a magnificent part of the Wharfe and pointing us to Weegmans in Otley for the best Pies in the world.

    Hope you enjoy the stroopwafels:-)

    Cheers
    Marco

    Just by coincidence I visited Otley today and I walked past Weegmans - yes the pies are good.
