Best Flies For The River Dove


Located in the counties of Derbyshire & Staffordshire, the river Dove is famous for it’s prominence in the book “The Compleat Angler”. It’s an excellent fly fishing river and Charles Cotton’s “fishing temple” still overlooks the river. The fly fishing in the Dove is predominately for wild Brown Trout and Grayling and responds very well to all fly fishing methods.

Flies for the Dove revolve around the usual mix of Olives, Caddis & Terrestrials. There can also be a bumper Mayfly hatch on the Dove so make sure you have some Mayfly patterns in your box if fishing at that time of year.
