The Fly Fisher: Bringing urban fishing to a global lifestyle audience

Urban fly-fishing has had an underground vibe for as long as we can remember. Sure, it’s featured on plenty of blogs and charity auction listings, and even some memorable magazine interviews, as well as the book that launched a thousand urban fishing adventures, Trout in Dirty Places… … but we reckon this might be the […]

Merry Christmas to all Urbantrout’s supporters!

It’s fair to say that 2016 has been unexpected in lots of ways. But one thing hasn’t changed – the growing community of urban fly-fishers who’ve been reading this website (and sometimes sporting our own favourite eco-branded fishing gear in search of the big one in destinations near and far). We’ve got lots of exciting new […]

Marine plastic pollution: Catch it in your river first!

If Broken Windows Theory didn’t exist, you could almost make a case for not pulling all the shopping trolleys out of urban rivers. After all, when every other scrap of habitat has been dredged out or covered in concrete, even a stray shopping cart can offer shelter for fish and invertebrates from floods and predators… … […]

Rivers by Design: A new primer for urban and post-industrial river restorationists everywhere

Last week’s annual River Restoration Centre conference was buzzing with conversation about an exciting new publication by the EU LIFE+ funded RESTORE partnership project: the Rivers by Design manual. Rivers by Design is subtitled A guide for planners, developers, architects and landscape architects on maximising the benefits of river restoration. So it was always likely […]

Urbantrout has a new tag!

Thanks to some amazingly nifty design skillz from our good friends Duncan Soar (urban fly-fisher, IT guru and photographer extraordinaire) and Dominic Skinner (designer of the iconic Dunk Mug) … … the Urbantrout logo has gone all conceptual, weathered and (we reckon) damnably funky.
