Guided Days

Guided fishing is a fun day out and a great way to meet new friends. Fishing equipment can be supplied or you can use your own. Either way, we'll do our best to get you into some fish.

The Northern Fishing School is based at Swinton Park Estate, North Yorkshire and comprises a casting tuition lake, Leighton Reservoir, the Swinton River Ure and River Burn beats.

Lake Fishing

The Northern Fishing School has a Learner Lake for newcomers to the sport and features large water targets for improving accuracy and Leighton Reservoir offers some of the best stillwater fly fishing in Yorkshire.  

River Ure

The estate has fishing for wild brown trout, grayling and salmon along its four miles of single-bank River Ure, split into two beats. The Swinton beat is bookable via FishPal; if you would like a ghillie please contact us.

River Burn

River Burn has over six miles of double bank, it flows through the heart of the Swinton Estate, rising on Masham Moor and flowing down through Colsterdale, past the villages of Healey and Fearby and joining the River Ure just south of Masham.
