Fly Fishing Kennick Lake

Friday, April 15th, 2011
We are pleased to report that Kennick is fishing really well. This warm weather is just what we needed to get the fish up in the water and topping.
Floating line and Damsel patterns have been the order of the day, with a couple even hitting it on the drop. The odd brownie have also been showing.
The best areas are, without doubt, Clampitts & Arnolds Point. This is quite similar to last year during the same period, except the fishing dropped away last year with cold easterlys sending the fish deep and grumpy. No such problem this year and although it was a blusterly northerly today, I think that helped break up the bright sun and kept the fish brave when coming to the fly.

Spiderman weaves his magic!
Well what a great day we had over at our sister fly fishing school. Pete had his annual workshop with the Crediton Fly Fishing Club, a cheery bunch of chaps who all successfully navigated the changing of the clocks to role up at the Fox and Hounds hotel on time!
It is always interesting to hear the opinions of fellow brothers of the angle and to show them new fishing techniques and fly pattern variations, so thanks to all who contributed. As always I enjoyed doing my entomology bit and Lee did a great demo on the roll cast and its uses on the river.
And for those of you who were wondering what the spider thing is all about – it’s Pete’s new nickname for me! I was demonstrating how to fish spiders down and across  for the guys to have a look at and the fish were very keen to get involved as well.
