    Yeah that pool is really dodgy. The first time I walked from Ayton to little Ayton along the river fishing must have been about 1971 or so. When we got near the bridge we saw two blokes with two big trout. They said theres plenty in there. They went and me and my mate fished the same tiny pool they'd fished. I went home with takyhomer, and caught several more fish. We then cycled there every day practically to get there for about 5 oclock. The same pool never let me down once. I always went home with a fish. There was a reason for that though. The river was stocked with trout from Ayton AA. A lad from school always wanted me to show him were I was catching from, but I wouldn't tell him. Then one day I showed him and he just laughed and wouldn't believe me. We walked down river a few hundred yards and then we seen a load of splashing. It was a trout about 5lb chasing a shoal of minnows. That sort of shut him up. I also used to walk over Little Ayton bridge, cross the field and into the wood behind the house. The fish were all wild in that section. I still fish the Leven at Weary Bank down stream for big trout and grayling.

    They've got Salty Beck, the Esk between Castleton and Danby, the Leven from Wearey bank downstream and a small pond off Wilton Lane. Salty beck got polluted so the EA gave Guisy some compo to stock it. The EA stocked it too, I'm led to believe. They usually have vacancies, so you should be in with a shout if interested.

    get me some details dave prices etc,may be something to think about with it been local.is the esk fly and worm?.
    and this pond of wilton lane does it have much going for it.

    Ponds got some big perch in, chub, roach etc. Some members love the place. You can drive up the field and park right next to it. Its somewhere close to go at a drop of a hat. Esk is worm and fly and spin for seatrout, as is skelton beck is too. The Leven can be fished all year practically, with it holding chub and grayling. I think initially price was about £62 first year, then 42 after that. The club don't offer fishing like the big clubs do, but its local fishing and the club is very friendly, and flexible when it comes to paying your subs. Ill drop you a pm with an address and number.
