Cromford Fly Fishing Club hosts WTT habitat demonstration day
Posted on March 06, 2015
Cromford Fly Fishing Club hosted a Wild Trout Trust habitat demonstration day on their stretch of the River Derwent at Cromford, Derbyshire, in mid-February, led by WTT Conservation Officer, Tim Jacklin.
Woody debris was installed in 4 locations on the river by using numerous techniques i.e.. brushwood revetments, hinging trees and tree kickers. These techniques are known to provide benefits for fish especially the juvenile stages as well as the wider ecology. This experience has been put to good use on subsequent club working parties.

Many thanks to Cromford FFC for hosting the day and to the Environment Agency for the sponsorship to make it possible.
