I'm not that experienced at this but I'd choose......Chatton, Spring/early Summer, buzzers.

Sorry it's not a still water but the River Derwent before anywhere else...if I had to choose a still water I would have said Witton Castle a few year ago, but not any longer, Now.......Chatton...!! Still love the Derwent Resevoir though....!!

Cow- Green for me because they are wild fish and you dont know whats going to grab your flies.You can also get all seasons in one day up there.

I would love to say Witton Castle, but like Ant said not now, in the few years I have been going I have seen it go downhill, hopefully it can return to its best, so I would have to choose Langley Dam in the Spring

I can not narrow it down to one purely on the basis different venues offer different types of fishing
bank fishing = belflask
boat fishing = lockwood
river fishing = the tees pierce bridge (browns grayling)
tees = salmon fishing (locations top secret)
