Fly Fishing in Devon in September

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Fly Fishing in Devon in September can be a great time to be on the water. The autumn salmon run will be under way and with low water for most of the season there are still plenty of fish looking to make the next stage of their journey. Trout fishing can be outstanding and with the evenings getting cooler the fish will feed throughout the day looking to pack on weight ahead of spawning.

Fly Fishing School – Winter

Now that the rivers of Devon are closed there is no need for us to shut the fly fishing school !

We are able to offer fly casting lessons on hourly, 1/2 day and full day options and having the school on the grounds of the Fox and Hounds Hotel means that it is easy to make your fly fishing lesson an overnight stop over with fine food and a wide range of non fishing activities on the hotel grounds there is even some beauty treatments for the non fisher in the Hotel’s beauty salon.

Our fly fishing courses take place on our private casting lake which means that there are no extra costs of having to buy a day ticket.  We have quality tackle from Orvis and an AAPGAI instructor on hand to ensure that you have the highest quality tuition available.


For the more experienced angler we are able to offer casting “tune ups” if you are heading to warmer climes in search of bonefish, tarpon or even permit.

We also offer guided fly fishing for pike and grayling in some great locations.

We can wax lyrical about our fly fishing school and are proud that we never ask for testimonials as we want to offer the very highest standard in tuition and guiding, be it your first visit or you are a seasoned guest. We were overjoyed to recieve an email from a regular visitor Richard who sent us this mail recently.

Dear Pete,

I would like to take this time, as my season comes to a close, to thank you for what has been the highlight of my summer. My anticipation and excitement were well founded from the beginnings in May to my recent visit during the Bank Holiday; it has been an awesome experience.

The website does exactly what it says on the tin!

Your professionalism, enthusiasm and passion for fly fishing are infectious and I can honestly say that I am hooked on river fly fishing for life.

What started as guiding with tuition turned into such an adventurous learning curve; and by putting into practice all you have taught and advised, I feel I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. Highlights of the year have been; the wonderful day on Dartmoor; that fantastic day on the Bray and my best fish of the year from ‘Beat 2’.

The Devon School of Fly Fishing experience for me has been one of total joy and satisfaction. To any would be river fly fishermen it is an experience I can whole heartedly recommend and one I will be embarking on next season.

Once again, a big thank you to you and the team at DSOFF and I look forward to seeing you next season at the Fox and Hounds Hotel.

Kindest regards

Richard from Hampshire
