With an afternoon to kill I made my way from bagging up at Ladybower across Derbyshire in search of new horizons (Ecclesbourne). I managed to check out the Wye while driving through Bakewell which was very busy due to the bank holiday. I eventually arrived at the Ecclesbourne and rushed down to have a good look around this little gem. I walked downstream checking things out and managed to spot a few small wild fish. This stretch will be stocked but not yet, so any fish spotted today have a good chance of being wild. First impressions are what a super little river this is, and although nothing was moving today, come May this will be a superb fishery in my opinion, and frankly I can't wait. I had my kelly kettle with me for the walk, so I boiled up a nice cup of rosy while sitting on a tree stump, watching the river like a hawk. I took a few pictures to give a rough idea of the size/type of stream the Ecclesbourne is.
