Major Vince Gwilym - fly fishing

A day fishing, fly fishing in Derbyshire with Welsh international fly fisherman, Major Vince Gwilym, on the river Wye, Derwent or Carsington Reservoir (9 miles from Duck Pond View)

Return to Home Page
The river Derwent flows south from Ladybower reservoir towards Derby, through some very fine scenery. The upper reaches make for some good fly fishing with plenty of trout and grayling, whilst as the river runs down below Matlock an increasing number of coarse fish are to be found including barbel and chub. The river Trent has lost some of it's popularity but good catches can still be had at Swarkestone.
