The river Dove is a prime Derbyshire river, famed mostly for it's inclusion in the book "The Compleat Angler". The river first forms on Axe Edge Moor and continues for around 45 miles where it then joins the River Trent. Charles Cotton's "fishing temple" stands on the banks of the river near the village of Hartington.
The River Dove has an excellent population of Wild Brown Trout and Grayling. Flies for the River Dove mainly revolve around Olives, Caddis & Terrestrial. There can also be an excellent Mayfly hatch.
