Derwent at Shardlow

Shardlow, Derbyshire

The River Derwent at Shardlow is a very special stretch of river. There are few places in the country that offer river fishing like this, if you like a spot of stick float fishing then you should really go and check it out. The river also has a good head of barbel too - what more do you need?!
