Fly Fishing Devon

We’ve had 2 days of dry weather which has meant the level of the Taw has dropped just a little bit and the colour has dropped a little. The river still being high means it has a push to it and means I have had to look at the river a little more differently than normal. I love to cast a dry fly to a rising trout. I am sure there aren’t many of us who don’t but it isn’t going to be a winning combo right now. The lack of rising fish have proved the point but sometimes in conditions like this casting a larger dry into a slow, sheltered spot can bring up a fish or two but a nymph or better still a couple of nymphs are going to pay bigger dividends so that’s how I’m fishing right now.

Casting off of the main flow and into areas where the trout don’t have to expend too much energy can catch you a few and casting tungsten bead head nymphs are better still. These areas especially under tree cover can also be the domain of a resting sea trout and sometimes you can get lucky if you combine these areas with quiet wading and a good first cast. It has worked pretty well for me recently and again today.

I’m pleased with Issue 7 of Eat, Sleep, Fish and hope if you haven’t seen it yet you’ll enjoy some reading over the weekend!
