To make the very most out of your limited fishing time it’s not enough just to be fishing in a good area on a good water. You need to be fishing the best places, on the best stretches of water, at the right time of year, using the right flies, with the most effective technique.

The specific services offered by our fly fishing guides include:
Fully guided fly fishing days start from as little as £189 with the cost varying depending on the location being fished; the number of people fishing and the time of year.

For guided days the responsibility for obtaining this (non-migratory trout) licence is the liability of each individual fisherman.

In the south of England Go Fly Fishing UK have guiding expertise on most of the main chalkstream and limestone rivers in Hampshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire and the Cotswolds. In Hampshire the famous rivers Test and Itchen provide superb Trout and Grayling fly fishing. In Berkshire the River Kennet is the top chalkstream for fly fishers. The River Wylye is the best of the Wiltshire chalkstreams and the River Coln is the very best Cotswolds fly fishing river. It is a rich limestone stream and as well as containing a good head of often large Brown Trout and Grayling it flows through perfect peaceful ‘picture postcard’ English countryside. The wild rivers of Devon - such as the Taw, Exe, Teign, Yeo and Clum - provide excellent fly fishing for wild Brown Trout and Sea Trout and Salmon are also a good prospect at certain times of the year.
Dave Martin runs Go Fly Fishing UK in the south of England, is an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide, has the Level 2 licence/qualification and has been REFFIS accredited. To the right Dave is pictured with a 26” Brownie he caught on a size 16 dry Adams and a 6x tippet. Dave guides full time and in total Dave has delivered well over 1200 client bookings, over one third of which were on the famous River Test.
In Yorkshire we have access to some exclusive beats on the limestone River Wharfe and River Aire in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Both these rivers offer superb wild Brown Trout fly fishing with the fish in the Aire often topping 20 inches. The River Wharfe is also a particularly good Grayling river. There are some excellent stillwater options in the Dales with one in particular, Malham Tarn, providing just about the best, although challenging, wild Brown Trout lake fishing in England – take a look at the picture to the left. This fish, caught at Malham Tarn by Steve Rhodes our head fly fishing guide in the north of England, weighed around 4lbs but Steve has had them there to well over 5lbs.
Steve runs Go Fly Fishing UK in the north of England, has lived and fished in Yorkshire all his life and is currently Chairman of the Grayling Society. He is an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide, has the Level 2 licence/qualification and has been REFFIS accredited. There are stretches of the River Wharfe where Steve has guided on more than 100 occasions and he lives less than one mile from where very large wild Brown Trout can be caught on the upper reaches of the superb River Aire.
In East Yorkshire we have access to the excellent limestone and chalkstream rivers around Pickering and Driffield, including the crystal clear Costa Beck, Oxfolds Beck and West Beck. These provide superb Brown Trout and Grayling fly fishing with both species running to large sizes in these fly-rich waters.
In the Lake District the River Eden and River Eamont are in our opinion the very best. Excellent fly fishing is available for wild Brown Trout and Grayling, with both reaching large sizes, and the Salmon fishing can be very good in the right season. The Lake District lakes themselves also provide very good Trout fly fishing.
The limestone streams of the Derbyshire Peak District offer excellent fly fishing opportunities and we offer guided fly fishing days on the River Dove, River Wye and River Derwent. All contain very good stocks of wild Brown Trout and Grayling with the Wye being famous for also having Britain’s only successful wild breeding population of Rainbow Trout....and there are many of them!
Go Fly Fishing UK offer guided fly fishing days on the rivers of mid, south and north Wales. The River Dee in north Wales and the River Severn and River Wye in mid-Wales all offer wild Brown Trout and superb Grayling fishing. The River Usk, in and near to the Brecon Breacons, is the best Brown Trout river in Wales, with both many and large wild fish. All these rivers also offer the chance of a Salmon and our head guide on the River Dee is a master Salmon (and Trout and Grayling) guide. The Welsh valleys and mountains are particularly scenic and also offer some very good stillwater options for those fly fishers who like to catch Brownies in unspoilt wild locations.
On the rivers of southern Scotland Go Fly Fishing UK offer guided Trout, Grayling, Salmon and Sea Trout fly fishing days. These waters include the world famous River Tweed and its excellent tributaries the Teviot, Ettrick, Yarrow and Whiteadder. Also in south west Scotland we offer guided fly fishing days on the famous River Nith and on an the nearby rivers Urr, Cree and Minnock. Guided loch fly fishing for both wild Brown Trout and stocked Rainbow Trout is also available in southern Scotland. The scenery in Scotland is majestic and the fly fishing is usually memorable.
