Opening day at Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers’ Club

Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers’ Club

In Things to do by Bernard CarterLeave a Comment

Miller’s Dale has long been a popular spot for anglers, (as the name would suggest), and to this day members of the local Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers’ Club can be found in and around the area enjoying a peaceful day by the Wye.

Cressbrook &  Litton Flyfishers’ Club enjoy the use of eleven miles of river fly fishing on the river Wye which goes past the bottom of our garden. The river is a haven for wild brown trout as well as rainbow trout and in the lower beats there is also a thriving population of grayling. You will find spectacular hatches of upwinged flies, including the iconic mayfly, stoneflies and caddis flies, and together with a huge population of freshwater shrimp, the Derbyshire Wye is the perfect place for dry fly and nymph fishing. The club takes their responsibilities very seriously and employ three river keepers who patrol the river, maintaining the banks, protecting wildlife, as well as preventing and dealing with poachers.

The Club has 140 members led by Head Keeper Chris Dore.  Fishing of this quality is highly sought after – the club has a lengthy waiting list – however if you are staying with us and wish to sample the fishing you can do so by buying a Day Ticket.
