Get Together programme for Gargrave 19 May

Thursday, 26th April 2018

The 2018 WTT annual gathering beckons, running over the weekend of 19 & 20 May 2018, based around the village of Gargrave, near Skipton in N Yorks. It’s a really excellent chance to meet and chat with like-minded trouty types, listen to some inspiring talks on work in the patch and even fish some of Yorkshire’s finest trout rivers.

Early arrivers will meet for a pint in Lothersdale at the Hare & Hounds (Jonny Grey’s local) on the Friday evening, 18 May; if you’re staying over in Gargrave, we’ll try to arrange group taxis from Lothersdale back to Gargrave. Saturday will see a day of doubtless brilliant talks, in the village hall at Gargrave (programme here), followed by a walk along the River Aire, guided by WTT Conservation Officers, to see issues impacting the river and some of the work that is being done by WTT, the Environment Agency, Aire Rivers Trust, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Hull International Fisheries Institute, and local angling clubs.

On Saturday evening, we’ll enjoy a second pint and perhaps a curry in Gargrave before waking to fish fantastic local club water (with many thanks) on the Aire, Ribble and Wharfe.

Please do join us. £10 will cover lunch, tea and coffee, booked either by returning this booking form to Christina in the WTT office (office@wildtrout.org) or calling on 02392 570985. Details of the fishing will be arranged once you’ve booked in. If at all possible, please book by Friday 4 May; thank you.

We very much look forward to seeing you.
