Fishing trips on the River Wharfe & River Ouse in Yorkshire, England
Alex Peters, local specialist angling expert, describes why a day spent river fishing for Barbel or Pike, or lake fishing for Carp, in Yorkshire is an experience never to be forgotten...
"The River Wharfe rises high in the Yorkshire Dales spilling into lush green rolling countryside as it reaches the historic towns of Lower Wharfedale. The river glistens as it flows over gravelly shallows between deeper pools, and gradually, fish other than trout and grayling are found.
The most large and exciting fish in the river Wharfe are the predatory
Pike and the
hard-fighting Barbel. These fish are wild native species and since the last
ice-age have adapted ideally to their beautiful environment.
Prepare to share the river bank with Deer, Foxes, Kingfishers and occasionally the rare fisherman!"
As well as fishing for Barbel, Pike and Chub on his local River Wharfe, Alex can now take you to other venues depending on the time of year, the weather and your requirements.
Alex will use his intimate knowledge of the water and its inhabitants to your advantage. Whether you choose to fish for ferocious predatory Pike, powerful Barbel, bold and brassy Chub, or big carp, Alex will ensure your day's fishing will be one to remember whatever the time of year.
Fishing trips are tailor-made to your requirements and can be day, afternoon or evening trips. The comprehensive service can include transport to and from the river (within a reasonable radius) or you can meet Alex at a convenient place near the fishery.
The maximum number of anglers Alex can take is 2 (preferably only 1 person if beginner).
For newcomers to the sport, Alex can teach the different arts of
angling including trotting a float, legering (both static and trundling),
swimfeedering, Pike methods including static deadbait, wobbling,
paternostering, and crucial to being a successful angler - the art of reading a
water to figure out where to fish.
