Ogden day 10am Sunday 5th June 2016

Ogden Day, Sunday 5th June 2016 from 10 am just downstream of the main road bridge in Bakewell.
On this day it will be one hundred and fifty one years since Mr James Ogden demonstrated his floating flies on the Derbyshire Wye below Bakewell Bridge. The day after, the dry-fly-only rule was adopted on the Peacock Fly fishing water and has been in place ever since. 
There will be a re-enactment of his demonstration to catch a fish. Let us hope he is successful!
