RIVER IRTHING, BRAMPTON

In the winter this stunning little river turns into a grayling fishing haven where anglers can trot a float and catch fish to 2lb in stunning scenery.

The lower end of the river near the Golden Fleece pub is a good choice and you can snatch a pint at the end of your session. The stretch at Lanercost is also worthwhile as well as beautiful.

Most of the river is run by Brampton Angling Association who offer day tickets to visiting anglers from the Post Office in Brampton town centre.
