All of our fly fishing courses take place at our HQ at the Fox and Hounds Hotel but it is not necessary to be a resident of the hotel for you to take either fly fishing tuition or guiding from the Devon School of Fly Fishing.
We have a private lake stocked with hard fighting trout and over 5 miles of the famous River Taw where we are able to show you how to catch trout, sea trout and salmon. With the coast just a short drive away we are ideally placed for salt water fly fishing locations and for something completely different, fly fishing for pike or carp can easily be arranged at nearby locations.
We believe in providing the best service possible and will always go that extra mile to ensure you learn lots but also that you enjoy yourself!
All of our team are AAPGAI qualified to the highest standards but also understand the need to teach you in an easy to understand and jargon-free manner. Most of all though, we are fly fishermen and if we are not out teaching or guiding we are out on the water ourselves!
We are able to offer a wide selection of courses and also hourly fly fishing lessons. So if you are just in need of a quick “tune up” we are on hand to help!
The fishing school also runs group courses throughout the year covering a variety of subjects. Please check the site for more details.

Being based at the Fox and Hounds Hotel means that we are able to offer the complete fishing break or holiday under one roof. If you are travelling from further a field we are able to organise your fishing and accommodation in one simple phone call, saving you the need to hunt around for somewhere to stay. You can rest assured that Nick and Tara will ensure that you enjoy your stay in wonderful rooms and excellent food!
