One day for 2 rods fly fishing for pike on a Yorkshire river, accompanied by Jonny Grey. This is a very different type of fly fishing experience, exploring a few locations on different rivers or several miles of a particular river depending upon conditions. There’s nothing quite like seeing ‘Dreadnought’ materialise from the depths just behind your fly, or the flash and lunge of a pike swipe at the very last instant just as you are lifting off. Several fish over 20lb have been landed in the last couple of short winter seasons. Jonny has gear if required and will provide lunch.
One day for 1 rod on the upper reaches of the Lancashire Wyre accompanied by Jonny Grey. The Estate once again have very kindly offered access to their private trout waters. WTT helped Wyre Rivers Trust and the Estate to improve the condition of many of the spawning tributaries of this beautiful and virtually unfished part of the river. Here is an extremely rare opportunity for one lucky angler to explore different reaches of varying character and reap the benefits of that work. Jonny will provide lunch. 2020 season.
