A Guides Day Off (What did you expect?)

A Guides Day Off (What did you expect?)


For most of the fly fishing season, I am busy delivering fly fishing lessons in the Peak District. Most of my fishing these days is for the Grayling during the winter as that’s when I finally get a bit of time off. Last week however I had a rare day off and went fishing of course! I fished on the lovely Derbyshire Wye, a limestone stream which is most famous for it’s wild population of rainbow trout.
