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 vert 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.
