Malham Tarn has a fly fishing history of more than 150 years and it must be one of the few places that's seen little change in that time. Fly fishing at Malham Tarn is by boat only for it's wild Brown Trout and requires specialised equipment, techniques and plenty of determination.
Malham Tarn is within easy reach of Leeds, Bradford, Manchester, Harrogate and York and with a direct rail link to Skipton from London Kings Cross makes it easy to visit even from the South of England. Malham Tarn is an ultra rich "food factory" for trout which makes them difficult to catch but when you do catch one it's often large and there are no more beautiful trout anywhere in the UK.
