    Default River Camel, Cornwall.

    I have an opportunity to fish the River Camel, for sea trout from the beginning of May, has anyone fished it and could anyone share some guidance on tackle please? It has been suggested I use spinning gear, not sure about spinning, I'm more of a fly fisher but willing to learn, any help would be welcome,

    “There is no more lovely country than Monmouthshire in early spring. Nowhere do the larks sing quite so passionately, as if somehow inspired by the Welsh themselves. There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.”

    Depends where your fishing ?
    Alot of the Camel is deep fairly slow and overhung by trees.
    Its possible to fish the fly, I have and plenty do but many more spin. Generally you will not be casting far. You want to be overlined or use a mini skagit system like OPST or Rio trout skagit. Anything that will let you cast with a minimal back cast or roll cast.
    Good luck
