The River Flit is a short river in Bedfordshire, England. It flows through Flitwick, then past Greenfield and Flitton, then through Clophill, Chicksands, and Shefford, then past Stanford, before meeting the River Ivel at Langford. Its name is not ancient, but rather a back formation from Flitton.[1]


According to the FishHere website the river is "noted for carp, dace, perch and roach fishing. Run by Shefford and District Angling Association. Permits are available from local tackle shops".[2]
