Perhaps the first thought to strike any fortunate angler who finds himself putting up a fly rod on the banks of Linthwaite Tarn is that here is a little taste of paradise. The achingly lovely view down from the tarn, through the woodlands and across Windermere to the hills beyond the water itself, surrounded by graceful trees and lush vegetation, the complete peace that surrounds the water, the entire absence of traffic noise but the occasional plopping of lazily rising trout. So it does not matter to any sane angler that the trout at Linthwaite House Hotel are not especially enormous or jostling for your fly like fish in a stew-pond. Rather are the Linthwaite fish just big enough to provide you with all the sport you should ever want in such a wondrous place.
