Just when you thought this fly fishing blog was going to get back to being only about flyfishing I’ve got a couple of updates on some great walking missions I’ve already completed this year. First, we have the 6 Dale Trail which takes in…wait for it…6 Yorkshire Dales. Phil had found this walk on the Web, [...]
Finally! The barometer has moved, the birds are tweeting and the snow is gone from all but the loftiest peaks. Brought out of deep freeze once again, the team of elderly fly-fishing superheroes known to mortals as ‘The Roundhay Flyfishers’ has just completed its inaugural outing for 2013 and as is customary it was a [...]
Which is this one http://www.postoffice.co.uk/rod-fishing-licence There are other websites which annoyingly rank higher in Google (I’m no SEO, but I assume they’ve paid Google handsomely to get there??) that charge you additional fees for ‘arranging’ your rod licence. F*ck that!!
I’ve received the following update, which I’m sure will please many Yorkshire anglers. “Walton Hall is open again. Refurbished boats, new electric motors, seats with back rests. Over 1600 fish stocked weed management underway just need the weather to come good. Booking essential. Hope this helps, anything further just give us a ring. Johnny 07772 [...]

Yorkshireflyfishing’s resident medical expert has put together a quick info burst taken from our previous Lyme [...]
One of Scotland’s most picturesque lochs (and that’s saying something!). Can you name it?
Corporal Johan Tittenstein Graf von Klink is a no-show for the 2013 fishing holiday due to expending all his annual leave on a 3 week ‘strength through joy’ honeymoon, or something like that. This left the rest of us all wandering around in a state of confusion unable to function without his rod of iron [...]
Last night saw Martin Bamforth sweep the board at the annual fly tying competition with his nicely tied Klinkhammer. The competition is split into 2 parts. First the flies are judged by the panel, pictured below carefully scrutinizing the entries. Then, after the winner of that section is announced the flies are ’peer assessed’ i.e [...]
Blimey, is nothing safe? Just been reading that Richard Wheatley went into liquidation last month. When I got into Fly Fishing I quickly recognised their fly boxes as the most desirable, something to save up for and cherish. I actually had a swing leaf bought for me as a birthday present about 15 years ago [...]
Howdy folks! No fishing since Esthwaite because the weather has been mostly gash but hopefully things will start to pick up soon. I had a recent trip to Glencoe however which looked beautiful with a shake of snow over the mountains so I’m whacking up some pictures to keep the blog ticking over. These [...]
