May 2014

The 2014 season on the rivers seems to be finally getting going.  More salmon seem to have entered the rivers and catches are increasing.  I was lucky enough to catch 2 springers around the 10 pound mark yesterday on the middle Taw. Others are also having success and the catch numbers are steadily increasing. This bodes well for the coming season and so long as we don’t experience the drought conditions of last year’s summer we should experience good fishing for salmon and sea trout this year.

Stillwaters are also fishing well with good catches at the South West Lakes fisheries, Wimbleball and Wislandpound.  The smaller fisheries, Blakewell and Bratton Water continue to provide good sport as always.

Mid June will see the start of my saltwater fly fishing for bass on the beach and estuary.  Given good weather conditions this always provides good fishing so if you fancy a go at the bass then give me a shout.  Tackle can be provided if you don’t have anything suitable.

Our September trip to Canada fishing for Atlantic salmon on the Miramichi river in New Brunswick is getting good interest again and we already have a number of bookings.  If you fancy am overseas trip this year for salmon then you can’t do much better than this.  Have a look at my website for further information.
