Fly Fishing in Devon

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Fly Fishing in Devon has really got under way after the long cold winter so if you fancy learning how to get your fly to that rising fish or would like a fly fishing guide we are able to help!

If you are new to fly fishing join us and learn the art of casting a fly to a trout. We are able to offer fly fishing tuition to all levels from newcomers to the very experienced.

The Devon School of Fly Fishing operates on over 7 miles of the river Taw and some of it’s tributaries. Your guide has an intimate knowledge of the water and what is going on taking the guess work out of your day. Being based at the Fox and Hounds means we are able to offer accommodation and fishing in a beautiful setting.

2010 season underway!

Despite cooler conditions than we hoped for at the start of the season fish have been caught, some on dries. Opening day saw Mo Graham return a 14 inch brown caught on a pheasant tailed nymph.

Salmon have been caught further downstream and despite the most recent spate none have been seen on the hotel waters as yet but they shouldn’t be far away.

The April edition of Trout and Salmon has an article by Devon fly fishing legend Mike Weaver visited during the mayfly last year. The highlight for me was the two of us both playing 12inch plus fish at the same time just a few feet apart!

A regular to our fishing school, Ian, had the first fish from one of our new beats and we hope there will be a lot more to come!
