About Us

Peaks Fly Fishing started life as a fly fishing school based in the Derbyshire Peak District. Over the years we have grown in to one of the leading fly fishing coaching organisations in the UK teaching hundreds of people every year how to fly fish.

It's through these thousands of hours on the water day in day out that our coaches have accumulated a huge knowledge of natural flies and their imitations, this is where our fly shop was born. We stock and sell the same patterns as our guides & coaches use on the water.

The fly shop is now a family business run by husband and wife team David & Vanessa Johnson.

Our flies

When setting up the fly shop we decided from the offset not to adopt a "pile it high and sell it cheap" approach. It's impossible to produce and sell a premium fly at a discount price. Our efforts go in to sourcing and making the best product we can.

We want to sell the same high spec fly we use in our own fly fishing.

Our premium flies are made from the finest materials on premium hooks from Hayabusa, Kamasan, Partridge & Gamakatsu.

The website is developed & maintained from an anglers perspective allowing the user to search by insect type or fly category.

Please get in touch if you need any help or advice - David Johnson, Director.
