Fly Fishing in Devon!

Monday, June 20th, 2011

The Devon School of Fly Fishing is able to offer just about everything for the travelling fly fisher. From fishing small streams like to the Bray and little Dart to the wonderful river Taw and the 8 miles of river we are able to guide you on. Don’t forget the wonderful streams of Dartmoor including the East and West Dart and Cherrybrook.

We are also able to take you to fish the lakes of Devon including Colliford, Fernworthy and Kennick to catch brown trout and rainbows.

We are also just a short drive to try fly fishing for bass. It really is fantastic fun and a day you won’t forget!

being located at the Fox and Hounds allows us to offer guiding and accommodation under one roof along with fishing the hotel waters. No club or public waters here. You’ll fish beautiful beats in great locations.

What more could you ask for?!

Please contact us for more details and we’ll be happy to help.

Fly Fishing School – Winter

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

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.


Please contact us for more details as we have some seriously good fishing to show you!

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

Orvis Endorsed Guide

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

I am extremely pleased to announce that I have been invited to join the Orvis Endorsed Guide Team. I am honoured to have been considered and was really happy to say “yes!” when asked. As a result the fly fishing school will now be exclusively using Orvis gear and I am already building a large collection of gear for guests to use free of charge including the range of Helios Fly Rods, Frequent Flyer Rods, Clearwater Rods and Battenkill Large Arbor and BBS reels. The Helios already seem to be going down well!

I feel that the tie up with Orvis is the next logical step for our little operation and they are a company I admire from a fishing and business perspective and fit in well with the ethos of our fly fishing school in making sure the customer is always looked after, no matter what.

I hope to work closely with Orvis on a wide range of projects more details of which soon so keep checking back for more details.
