Dads can indulge their hunter gatherer instincts in the Yorkshire Dales by enjoying a special Father’s Day (Sunday 18 June) ‘Catch and Cook’ fishing trip.
It’s hard to beat the taste of freshly-caught fish and Kilnsey Park near Skipton is ideally placed to offer a lake-to-plate experience for dads and their families.
After landing a rainbow trout from one of the scenic fishing ponds, the chef at Kilnsey’s Café by the Lake will prepare and cook it before serving the park’s twist on fish and chips with homemade mushy peas to the proud fishermen.
The Father’s Day Catch & Cook day costs £22.50 per person which includes the fishing experience, rod, and the landing of one fish that is then served as a lunchtime meal with a drink in the café.
Kilnsey Park, in the heart of the spectacularly scenic Upper Wharfedale, runs a fly fishery which includes fishing ponds specifically for those new to fly fishing.
Jamie Roberts, managing partner of Kilnsey Park explains: “Whether it’s the thrill of catching that first fish or enjoying friendly competition between other members of the family, the Catch & Cook day will be a great opportunity for dads to relax and spend time doing something a bit different from the norm.”
