It's nearly impossible not to catch a decent chub here

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?!
