Traditional Windemere Charr Fishing


The traditional method of catching Windemere Charr has remained the same for at least 150 years, and bears testimony to the skill of the old professional Charr fishers. This skill has been handed down from father to son...In days gone by, on about 12th of May, twenty-five boats with their complement of 50 anglers would assemble off Waterhead in the North Basin where most of the Charr were congregated. This meeting was called The Carnival, and good fishing was expected by all. As an old-time Charr fisherman said: 'They'll take a flat-iron in May!' And May is still one of the best fishing months of the season.
