A rare opportunity to acquire a stretch of fishing rights extending to approximately 1.76 miles between Kilgram Bridge and Charlcot on the north bank of the River Ure.

The fishing rights are situated on a stretch of the north bank of River Ure between Kilgram Bridge on the western boundary and the small hamlet of Charlcot on the eastern boundary.

The popular market town of Masham is situated approximately 3.5 miles to the south of Charlcot.

The property comprises a predominantly brown trout fishery although the improving nature of the River Ure means that runs of Salmon and Sea trout are now being experienced.

There are 12 established pools with extensive bank clearance work having being undertaken over recent years to improve entry and egress points thereby improving access for wading.

The vendor currently uses the fishing rights on a private basis however there is scope for an investor to let them or operate a syndicate whereby members/rods are charged
on an annual basis.

River Ure
The River Ure was once one of the best salmon rivers in the UK supporting catches of 3,000 salmon per annum, however pollution during the Industrial Revolution decimated the run of migratory fish.

Nowadays The Humber River System is seeing dramatic improvements in water quality and alongside the removal of physical barriers to salmon, returning to their traditional spawning grounds in the upper reaches of Yorkshire’s river have seen a dramatic recovery, particularly in the River Ure. This River is now probably one of the most improving salmon rivers in England with increasing numbers of returning fish year on year, confirmed by increased catch returns.

The Ure Salmon Group has been established to undertake such projects as extensive habitat improvement work to the main river and its main tributaries such as Bishopdale Beck and the River Cover. Other projects include a structured salmon smolt real program utilising the rivers own natural brood stock to mitigate for the loss of spawning and nursery areas lost through the development of local reservoirs.

The sale of these fishing rights offers the potential purchaser a real opportunity to own something special, and to be part of an historic angling story.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.
