A half day experience in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales where you can spend some quality time together learning to fish and creating memories. Fishing offers just the right balance of excitement and relaxation in the great outdoors, and there’s nothing to beat the sense of shared achievement when you settle down around a crackling campfire to enjoy a freshly cooked fish that you worked together to catch. The lakes at Kilnsey in beautiful Upper Wharfedale are the perfect venue to learn this rewarding pastime, with a long fishing history dating back to 1150. Our experienced guides share the secrets of mastering the basics of fishing so all you need to bring along is your enthusiasm to try something new. With a behind the scenes tour of a working smokehouse and the option to have a go at filleting your own fish.
