    Default Peacock Fly Fishing Club- Wye, Derwent, Bradford and Lathkill

    Its been four years since Glen started the old thread and with three rivers added, I have been asked to start another to keep it up to date.

    Its hawthorne time so its got to be black and floating if you are coming fishing in the next week or so.

    Thumbs down Tagged fish

    Under an agreement with a previous tenant, that allowed the fishing to come back in-hand before the expiration of an existing lease, we have had to put in a number of triploid brown trout in to the Derwent.

    These fish were reared on the Estate and are good quality fish farm trout. We have tagged the introductions with a coloured, numbered metal tag in the ‘passenger side’ gill cover. For your interest green tagged fish have been put in above the confluence, blue from there down to the Dukes Seat Car Park and gold to the lower limit.

    As you know we only have four rules; Dry Fly Only, no wading and catch & release on the Lathkill, Bradford and Wye and no lures on the Derwent. You are welcome, and we would appreciate, you keeping these tagged fish if you catch them, with the corollary that the fish without tags should be returned.

    We would appreciate your help, in what is a difficult time for the river.

    Good idea to have this fresh thread to take into account the additional waters.

    Please may I check on the rule about no lures in the Derwent?

    Does this mean we must not use muddlers and sculpin style flies to represent bullheads? In fact do we desist completely from using fish imitations?

    Personally, I don't mind either way but I did want to be sure.

    Fine - but. This sounds pedantic. But might not be.

    Fancy Wet Flies such as Red Tag, Treacle Parkin and Grayling Witch. Am I OK to assume these are not lures?

    You are right to assume they are not lures.

    Great afternoon on the Derwent yesterday, the Darley Dale direction. WBT (at least I'm sure they were) up to 1 lb, Rainbows up to to 3/4 lb and good Grayling but can never guess they're weight with any accuracy. Like Fullfin on the Derbyshire thread, I had some joy with a huge Mayfly (only one I had), with a Griffiths Gnat and a weighted quilled nymph. No joy with Hawthorn although there were millions of them around.
    Had my binocs with me to watch the Dippers, such wonderful birds I think, and didn't see one. Ah well.
    That's it for me until end of Mayfly, so a rest for the car and a dent in BP's fortunes.
    Del.

    ps, what's the story with the Bradford during Mayfly? Not sure as haven't been on it yet.

    Everyone seems to be smiling on the Derwent this year. The dippers hatched off just up the stream from the car park, in waterfall cave. They are far better equipped to deal with flood when they nest on side streams, unlike the kingfisher and the sand martins who regularly get wiped out by a sudden raise in water on the main river.

    We've seen a few mayflies already. One hatched and sat in the middle of Cupola Dam on the Lathkill for a good many minutes, with three of us watching. It was finally smashed, to a cheer to mark the opening of festivities.

    The Bradford is an interesting river, with s series of pool towards the top. We (you) have it all, from April 1st to Sept 30th. Let Jan know when you are going up- by text if you can. I'm showing a rod up there this week.

    Very pleasant few hours on the middle Wye today.

    Low, clear water and bright sunshine kept the larger fish under cover, and a blustery wind rendered good presentation somewhat challenging, but it was possible to use the wind in places. And, of course, there were a few sheltered corners.

    There were plenty of small brownies and rainbows happy to rise in streamy water, a few up to 9" or so. I left these alone after establishing what they were (stunningly beautiful fish, mind) as there were some greedy little fingerlings amongst them.

    Hooked one decent OOS Grayling which was successfully released without netting. Still claiming a Wye MacNab though
