I'm a keen fly fisher living in Ravenshead. I regularly take advantage of Derbyshire & Yorkshire's varied trout and grayling fishing. I've just read in this month's Fly Fishing & Fly Tying about your project and was really excited about it. Please let me know how I can get involved in your venture to restore a smashing little river almost on my doorstep?

Kind regards
