Fly Fishing for Bass in Devon

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

We have been guiding anglers for bass fishing for a number of years now and know the best times to go to put you in the best chance of catching a fish. Fly fishing for bass is great fun and is something new for even the most seasoned angler to try.

We are happy to supply you with all the gear that you might need from Orvis but if you have a reservoir rod that will be just fine.

As wind can be an issue when fishing on the coast we advise that being able to double haul will make life easier for you but as long as you are able to cast 50ft of fly line you are in with a chance!

The cost of guided fly fishing for bass is £120 and is a 1/2 day please feel free to conatct us for more details or information.

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.
