Mystery River

Take a look at this river and you could be forgiven for thinking that it is located in the highlands of Scotland. In fact this location is set within the Exmoor National Park and I feel privileged to be able to guide there. Yesterday it battered with rain and rivers for miles around were blown but this beautiful jewel in the Exmoor countryside did not disappoint.

Guiding Hugh and Martin who were enjoying a 3 day session is always awesome fun .... despite lashings of rain and a howling wind! The beauty of fly fishing is that it takes us to some amazing places and while some need a plane ride I still never fail to be amazed by the quantity and quality of our fishing here in the West Country.

The rivers are dropping back now after the rain and pretty soon I would expect that the Salmon reports will start pouring in. Indeed just yesterday a couple of fish were taken on the Barle near Tarr Steps. Check out the cameras here and my new daily River Exe report for up to the minute information. And there is also a chance to catch up with my ramblings on Hartflyfishing at Twitter.
