Stuart Crofts

Stuart is a long-term friend to the Wild Trout Trust and is well known as both an angler and an expert entomologist. He is a superb all-round angler, always open to new ideas and eager to share them with others in his illuminating talks. As an entomologist he has developed a formidable knowledge of river flies, running courses at the Freshwater Biological Association and writing a book on caddis flies. He played a leading role in the campaign to clean up the River Don in Sheffield during the 1980’s, and now fishes the River Don in Yorkshire and River Derwent in Derbyshire.
