Fly Fishing in Devon

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011
I’ve just finished a two day novice course with Geoff from Suffolk. Geoff had booked up some while ago, and had been eagerly looking forward to visiting the fly fishing school to start his new hobby.

We always try to exceed our client’s expectations here at the school so we had a good chat to start about what Geoff wanted to achieve and how we could set out about delivering.

Although Geoff had read and watched a lot of fishing related stuff he needed help in clarifying all the information in his mind. It can become really confusing when you have different commentators telling you the same thing but using differing descriptions and explanations.

Geoff is on the money!

Over the following days we had a string of firsts and grins, with Geoff making his first cast with his new rod, landing his first Taw wild Brown Trout caught on his own dry fly. It really doesn’t get any better then that and for those of us who can  remember landing our first fish, it is just the best feeling knowing that you put the mayfly on the money and the fish gladly rewards you.

Hope to see you again some day Geoff, still grinning I hope and enjoying all the wonderful things the River Taw has to offer.

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.
