Fly Casting to Success

Another beautiful day at Exe Valley Fishery. Here are a couple of guests learning the overhead cast under the watchful eye of Mark Bailey, an AAPGAI instructor and all round casting guru! We aim to provide fun courses with the chance to catch fish but there is no doubt that a decent cast ultimately results in far more fishing success in the future. After all it is no good knowing what fly and what line if the artificial can't be placed accurately within the fish holding zone. Check out the blog soon for some casting tips!

I am looking forward to tomorrow, guiding frequent guests Aubrey and Kate Prout. They have been fishing a North Devon river today. Back with me on the Exe and we are hoping to pick up from Aubreys success on Tuesday ... a stunning River Exe Grayling. See previous post.

Then on Friday I meet up with Henry Gilbey to shoot a Trout Fisherman feature on Fernworthy. There are just so many West Country venues to try and even though I have fished many of them I reckon I have only scratched the surface, Fernworthy will be a first! Chatting with South West Lakes fishery boss Chris Hall it sounds awesome, Wild Brown Trout that love Dries! Lets hope for a warm day with some cloud cover and that I manage to get some sleep the night before. Fishing does that to you, it is like Christmas eve as a kid the night before every session!
