Southeast of Manchester, the Wye fly fishing is well known for its brown trout and wild rainbow trout. The headwaters of the Derbyshire Wye are a series of five springs located above the town of Buxton. The Wye then runs downstream over 15 miles to the Derwent confluence near the town of Rowsley. The upstream sections pass through wild gorges and the lower sections are through meadows. The cold springs provide a relatively consistent temperature yearround.

To reach the River Wye for fly fishing, you will want to fly into Manchester.

Overall, River Wye is the 6th most popular fly fishing river of all 7 fly fishing spots in UK.
