The next important crossing over the river Ure West of Ripon is at the beautiful village of West Tanfield. The river here has begun to slow after its hectic tumble through Wensleydale on its way to the Humber Estuary and the sea. The river here host one of the oldest fly fishing clubs in the country – established in 1892 by the jounalist, writer and consumate Grayling fisherman Max Walbran. Sadly Max drowned in the river in 1909 and a splendid gravestone depicting rods, fish and a creal was erected in his honour in the village churchyard.

An original oil painting by David Stead, now available as a beautiful limited edition print on deep profile, archival quality canvas. The print is limited to an edition of only 150 and comes with a certificate of authentication
