May 2012

Been away on travels for a while, catching tuna in warmer climes but not on the fly.

We had a lot of water a few weeks ago although the rivers are now running back to normal levels for the time of year. The warmer weather has encouraged the insect hatch and trout fishing, both for wild brown trout on the rivers and rainbow on the lakes, is now in full swing. Lots of yellow mays are around as well as olives and the mayfly are also beginning to show.

There are more salmon showing in the rivers as well and catches are being reported thoughout the Taw system, several in double figure weights. Spey casting provides the most efficient method of presenting the fly when space is limited so why not book for some tuition to learn or improve this skill.

If you are interested in an overseas fishing trip in 2012 then look at my website for details of our Atlantic Salmon fly fishing trip with spey casting tuition in Eastern Canada. We are already full on this trip but other weeks at the lodge are available and you can always register your interest in our 2013 trip which we plan for the end of September again.

With the recent warm weather we will be fly fishing for bass on the North Devon Coast from early June. The dates are tide dependent so if you are interested in some saltwater fly fishing, give me a call.
