The summer is approaching, and trout anglers thoughts turn once again to that most special time of year, the mayfly hatch. Famous trout rivers and lakes and Stillwater fisheries across the country are well stocked with trout, giving keen trout anglers and families the opportunity to get out and enjoy the simple pleasure of catching and cooking their very own catch of the day, safe in the knowledge they are not damaging wild fish populations.

Whilst many are lucky to belong to a local fishing club or have access to a favoured beat, day tickets at a local trout fishery offer an affordable day out for all the family. For information on a local trout fishery or fishing club, why not check out the Stillwater Trout Fisheries Association (http://www.troutfisheries.co.uk/) or the Association of Scottish Stillwater Fisheries (http://www.assf.net/) for a list of well managed sites.

If you are looking for fresh ideas with what to do with your catch or for ways to use up the stockpile of fish in the freezer from previous successful days out! - The British Trout Association has a fantastic library of trout recipes, from simple bbq dishes and delicious salads to dinner party show stoppers.

And dont forget, if you have had as much luck fishing as the happy Royal couple then British trout is readily available at thousands of farm shops, fishmongers and supermarkets across the whole country! For further information please visit www.britishtrout.co.uk.
