Peak District Fly Fishing Lessons November

Peak District Fly Fishing Lessons November

It’s been a mild few weeks out on the water. On the river, the surface activity has dropped off in line with the fewer hatching flies expected at this time of year. During our fly fishing lessons in the Peak District there have been sporadic hatches of large dark olives but most fish have been feeding down near the stream bed. Czech nymphs or heavy tungsten nymphs have proved most successful with caddis or shrimp patterns gaining the best results!…

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.
