Get into angling with these Fly Fishing Experiences In Derbyshire! Headed up by David Johnson, you'll appreciate his personable style of tuition and his enthusiasm for angling. David is highly qualified game angling coach and is a member of the Salmon and Trout Association, so he knows a thing or two about our scaley friends.
All experiences start with introductions and selecting the right rod and reel for you, with David and his team explaining hints and tips as you go. The fishing takes place at a range of lakes in Derbyshire, including a 50 acre park on the edge of the Peak District near Chesterfield, which boasts fishing from dawn until dusk and has well-laid out paths making the lakes suitable for disabled visitors too. Tuition can also be arranged on a beautiful private beat of the River Derwent near Darley Dale.
The lakes are re-stocked weekly with trout from the on site hatchery, so you should be fishing at least 1.5 to 2lb trout. David will explain to you just how important it is to know which fly to choose and when, with this fishery being particularly successful for fishermen and women casting little black buzzer, cat's whisker or bloodworm imitation flies.

He loves the way fishing is a challenge, relaxing and makes you feel connected to nature as you relax in your lakeside surroundings.
