Elinor trout fishery self catering cottages

  • 5 of 5

What an excellent place to stay even if some of your family are not into fly fishing for trout as there is loads to see and do and all close by plus there is some stunning walks, but if you are into trout fishing you could not ask for a better place to stay and fish. Elinor trout fishery often holds many national fishing competitions and you can fish it via bank, wadding, row boats and best of all you can use your own float tube here as well. It also holds float tube competitions in conjunction with the British float tube association early in the year. As you can guess I am a float tube trout fisher
