What's in the Derbyshire Wye this month?

Though the river was rather high at the Rowsley end I thought I would challenge myself by trying to fish it. Just gathering my thoughts when Bernie Maher appeared armed with his kick-sampling kit. The colourfull results are shown in the photo. There were many shrimps of varied sizes (all smaller than the ones I have been tying). Cased caddis; quite large and dark, and a mayfly nymph.
And no, I didn't catch any fish, clearly the shrimps were too large!
