Dry Fly River fishing obsession in northern England.

River Derbyshire wye

River Dove

River Welsh Dee

River Welsh Severn



We shall be showing our fishing experiences on the iconic Derbyshire Wye which is unique to a wild rainbow trout that has been in the river since 1800s and by freak accident managed to sustain a wild population.

Also the River Dove (froome grayling)  and the Welsh Dee and Severn shall be included in the talk.

The talk shall be directed at dry fly fishing techniques  for preoccupied trout and grayling…flys shown shall be ones that are not known in the public eye.

Phil Ratcliffe (GAIA, FFF pro caster and guide ) will be on hand with casting techniques and questions to improve your line control.

The talk will be very informal and we would like all club members to join in the chat.

Some high res trout porn images shall be displayed on the projector.

Fishing stories will also be on the talk with some major success and failures.

After the chat and “Buffet break” we will have scott Webster at the vice showing his awesome ‘working’ flys.

Mark Brando will be selling a selection of wild pelts that cannot be purchased anywhere.
