At Hotel Indigo we have teamed up with Stuart Wardle of The Durham Fly Fishing Company, a top UK & International Fly Fishing Guide and Tutor to provide a range of unique and exclusive fly-fishing experience for our guests.

Whether you fancy trying fly-fishing for the very first time on the local River Wear or are more experienced and would like to explore some of the wonderful fly-fishing opportunities in the region, we can arrange a bespoke experience to fit around your own schedule. It really is a great way to discover the area and a wonderful way to be completely immersed in nature.

Here’s a taster of the kind of packages you can enjoy:

A 2-3 hr session based near Durham City and fishing a stretch of the River Wear.

  • Learn the art of casting a fly
  • Learn about the food (insects) the trout eat and where they live in the river
  • Have a really fun experience immersed in nature
  • Use your new skills to catch a wild river brown trout or grayling
  • Receive a unique and exclusive Hotel Indigo Experience memento of your day to keep and impress your family and friends

Get in touch with Stuart Wardle on 07904 278 889 to book your fly-fishing experience, or contact the team at Hotel Indigo Durham for special accommodation rates.

We had the most fantastic [wedding] day. The whole weekend was amazing. Everything went so very well. The food was amazing as always, the décor and the ambience was all perfect. All of our guests had a wonderful time and are still talking about it, especially those who stayed over. The staff were an absolute credit…polite, helpful, courteous and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. What a wonderful experience it was and we will never be able to thank you all enough.
