Jon Hettle - Boat Fishing Clatworthy

Jon Hettle is a regular visitor to our shores and when he leaves behind his successful insurance business he loves to fish!

Here he is more than chuffed with a 3lb+ Rainbow in stunning silver livery, taken on the top using a dry fly. He managed several more fish during the day on dries all caught from a boat.

I would act as a look out, scanning carefully for the merest sign of a fish. As soon as an unknowing Trout was spotted the oars were fired up to take us into position. Jon then cast to these fish and watched for the take. This is perfect visual fishing!

The fish had been feeding hard on beetles through the day and if the presentation was right, they would take.

During Jon's trip we also packed in fly fishing on rivers for Wild Brown Trout and continued working on his casting.

Another succesful guided session and we look forward to welcoming Jon back in September.
