Going Fly Fishing On River Wharfe? Get Ready For 9 Metres Deep Surprises!

The fast-flowing River Wharfe in Yorkshire is up to 9 m (30 ft) deep in places. It’s probably the most famous of all the rivers in the North of England for the top quality fly fishing it provides and its large stocks of wild brown trout and grayling.

River Wharfe is at its most scenic in the Yorkshire Dales and you can try the fishing spots in Ilkley, Addingham, Burnsall, and the very popular Bolton Abbey. At Bolton Abbey, it is more suitable for beginners -  the ideal place to learn all the fly fishing techniques, with well-defined pools and good stocks of trout and grayling.
