Experience and Guided Days


The Yorkshire Esk is Yorkshire's premier salmon and sea-trout river with impressive runs of fish almost straight off the tide and situated right in the middle of Heartbeat Country.

We have a long standing relationship with the Egton Estate at Egton Bridge. Their 1.25m water has 15 named pools, easy access, and is the prettiest river you will ever find

The main runs of fish start around the beginning of June until the end of October. The Yorkshire Esk is a spate river and will always fish best after rain, that's why here at Fly Fishing Yorkshire we aim to get you there at the optimum time. We always fish the Yorkshire Esk on the fly and we primarily fish it with an 11ft Switch rod. You wilI also fish one of the pools used by Paul and Bob in the recent Mortimer and Whitehouse Christmas Special.

We are now taking bookings for the up and fast approaching runs on the Yorkshire Esk. Whether you're looking for a full days guiding or experience days for newbies to the sport, we will provide all your equipment, transport during the session, your EA rod licence and your day tickets.

Your day will be with Olly or Richie.

If you need accommodation, we use the fantastic Horseshoe Inn at Egton Bridge. We can't recommend it highly enough.
