Often recorded in the river, the Peaks Fly Fishing podcast is mainly geared around fishing trips in and around the Derbyshire Peak District & South Yorkshire. Sit back and listen to the river trickling past and discover the waters where Isaak Walton fished and the fish that live in them. Take in the magic of those hidden urban streams and the gems that can be caught. Recorded by fly fishing author, film maker and pro-coach David Johnson on his local rivers and sometimes further afield too. I fall in so you don't have to.
