Sheffield - Yorkshire - suggestions

Saturday, we ship my daughter to Sheffield (University - Masters) and likely to visit - once or twice in 2013. What suggestions are there for the wife and I to fish (we both fly fish)?
Wharfe in May? Guides?
Judy is not into the fish of a thousand casts though, and we prefer rivers.

If you leave it untill the very end of May or early June then, if you want to treat yourself, you could try the may fly fishing on the Derbyshire Wye - the Peacock Hotel at Rowsley has a good stretch. The Wye is a limestone river & is almost unique in the UK as it has a successful breeding population of wild rainbow trout as well as browns & grayling; it has some very good sized fish too.
The fishing is upstream dry fly & as said the mayfly hatch should be in full swing around then. Not cheap but norwhere near prices for the Test or other Southern chalkstreams, but the most lovely surroundings & crystal clear water, it's not "Spey" fishing but is is really good fun. - All about 45 minutes drive from Sheffield.

Regards, Tyke

Yes, I was not expecting the tickets to be cheap in most locals.
