Fewston Client Page

Fewston car park is small and has a small fishing office located in the toilet block - meet outside the fishing office. If you click the link below it will open a new web page in your browser showing the location in Google maps.


Whatever the forecast, you should bring waterproofs and seasonal clothing. You will need to wade to fish effectively at Fewston - chest or thigh waders are suitable. For safety you also need to wear a hat and glasses or sunglasses.

If you have your own fishing equipment please feel free to bring it along. In any event I will bring a full set of tackle with me which you can use free of charge during your lesson. If you don't have waders please let me know your shoe size and I'll bring some for your use.

There are toilet facilities in the car park.

Important: Please note that you will need an Environment Agency rod licence (coarse and non-migratory trout rod licence, currently £6 for a day ticket) available from any Post Office or online (https://www.gov.uk/fishing-licences). Failure to have a rod licence may result in prosecution with a maximum fine of £2500 and a criminal conviction; please ensure you have a rod licence before starting to fish.

For insurance purposes, I'm currently obliged to share my risk assessment with you - this contains special precautions owing to CV-19 on the final page (see below). Please bring hand sanitiser for your own use.
