I'm from Braunton, in North Devon, and visiting my mother a few weeks ago I went for a walk at high tide that passed the confluence of the Caen and Knowl water (the Caen sort of steps down an artificial slope and goes from being a small river to an estuary).
The water was absolutely boiling...
Does anyone know whether the Cannington Brook near Bridgwater holds trout? I've a holiday booked there late this season.
Any other small streams nearby also appreciated, obviously Exmoor and all the WCAP rivers are closeish but probably too far for family to tolerate...
Any suggestions for the Bath/Bristol area? Happy to travel a bit if needs be.
For clarity looking for grayling and any other legal target species (at present I’m not too hot on coarse seasons but will check before fishing). I will leave the trout well alone. Just don’t want to put down the fly...
Does anyone know who owns the fishing on the shortish section of the By Brook that runs immediately by the roadside through Castle Combe in Wiltshire?
I walked by today and there are some good sized trout in there. I'm wondering if the roadside section is "owned" by the local authority of...
Looking for a nice rod that's six-foot-something.
For use on small streams in Bristol, S Wales and the West Country.
Not flush with cash at present but been on the lookout for something decent second hand for a while, so thought I'd try the Wanted section!
Does anyone have recommendations for unhooking and de-barbing tools?
I have a pair of medical forceps that my (doctor) father had hanging around in a cupboard but they are quite long/unwieldy on a zinger and, with serrated ends, not that efficient for crucshing barbs when fishing C&R.
Anyone in Bristol or nearby fancy a fishing buddy?
I'm newish to fly fishing, excited for streams and happy to fish smallish/cheapish stillwaters too.
I'm 30, from Devon and moved to Bristol after 18mo in London and a few years abroad.
Evening all and happy new year!
I came across this store on the French version of a certain well known auction site and wondered if anyone had any experience:
Obviously if it seems too good to be true etc. ... but if anyone has an experience they'd be...
I’ve been looking for an affordable 6’ or 6,6” 2-4wt outfit and just saw this on Garry Evans - a full outfit for c. £85 Shakespeare Agility 2 Rise Brook Outfit - SAVE 46
Can anyone figure out what’s in it (reel and line) and give me a steer on whether it’s worth the £££?
I'm looking at Jersey and trying to figure out whether there's any stream fishing at all - I'm fine with small streams to fish 6'-7' rods and tiny flies, I just love to be fishing moving water.
Any hot tips?
Thanks - catzrob.
