News of upcoming events in Yorkshire

There are several events we’d like to draw your attention to over the next few weeks in Yorkshire. 

The Great Yorkshire Show is this week (10 – 12th July) and as there is very little water in the rivers, why not pop along and see Jonny in the Salmon & Trout West Yorkshire Branch marquee. There will be opportunities for casting, riverfly samples and fly-tying demos, a river table to play with, as well as the opportunity to chew the fat re river habitat or get some advice for your local water if it needs a bit of TLC.

The following are workshops open to all, funded by Yorkshire Water under their Biodiversity Enhancement Fund. If you’d like to attend, please email Jonny (jgrey@​wildtrout.​org):-

On the 14th July, Jonny will be coordinating a small beck restoration workshop in partnership with Skipton Angling Association at Embsay Reservoir. 

Then, on the 17 – 18th July, in partnership with Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust, he will be installing woody deflectors and installing brash bank protection on the Cock Beck (a Wharfe trib),
