Wild Brown Trout Fishing

Balderhead is one of four of the very best wild brown trout fisheries for Any Method in the UK  that we have in the stunning Teesdale countryside.

Full of fighting fit, unique coloured trout, these 100% natives have descended from the original upland brownies which lived in the streams before the dams were built. Lightning quick and very hard fighting, these fish are a joy to catch.

Surrounded by the fantastic scenery of the North Pennine grouse moors, there are few more tranquil and relaxing ways to spend a day’s fishing than roaming the banks of these waters, and even fewer places where you can catch truly wild browns. A focused day fishing in the great outdoors is akin to mediation – an activity linked to decreased anxiety and lowered blood pressure.

Pick up your rod today and help your body relax with this excellent sport. Book tickets here.
