A Day on the River

Finally the rain has ceased for a couple of days and despite the river being unfishable on Monday, today was very different. Guiding Jim Pool of London we found that by wading deep and fishing tight into the edges that some good sport was to be had with these awesome little wild Browns. We landed a good 1/2 dozen, but missed and lost twice as many. Killing flies were the good old Klinkhammer and Adams Parachute fished on tapered leaders down to 3lb. Simple, but effective!

Jim has only just got into fly fishing over the last season but has found his passion lies in the rivers. There is something very special about running water, a box of dry flies and a long day ahead. Look at this typically stout little Exe Brown Trout - perfection. After a "hard days" guiding it is time to head home for the England match, steak and a few beers! Look out on the Blog for a variety of news regarding the tackleshop and upcoming events.
