Despite the cold, wind and heavy rain in the afternoon the first Wharfedale Fly Fishing Day was deemed a success.The event was held yesterday on the village green in Burnsall alongside the River Wharfe and was pretty well attended for its first time by fly fishers from far and wide, hopefully it will be repeated in future years.

The Appletreewick, Barden and Burnsall Angling Club had a successful day and received many enquires regarding their fishing on the River Wharfe and Barden reservoir, a good number of membership application forms were handed out to visitors who expressed an interest in joining the club.

From my own point of view it was great to see so many old friends and Go Fly Fishing UK customers and I look forward to being there again next year.
