I am planning to be in Lot in May and I'd like to fish the Dordogne. Does anyone have any info about fishing the Dordogne. I am going to get a Carte de Peche for Lot. Do I need any other permits to fish the river. Also if anyone can point me in the right direction of where its good for...
can anyone give me advice on techniques for fishing lower itchen for grayling, also good spots. It's a big bit of river and its a tough one to get your head round. I was planning on some french nymphing potentially, to get down to the fish etc..
I have fished the avon near enford. Excellent river to fish. Lots of grayling as well as browns. The best flies I have used on the river at this time of year are mayfly patterns. Rather than go for the conservative patterns, I prefer something which stands out a bit.
Tiese last Friday
Went fishing last Friday down at harpers. Grayling getting tough. Caught a few rainbows and lost a grayling.
The river is stocked with browns and rainbows. Always seem to be a large number which over winter. Anyway, I met a chap called martin last Friday who was performing an...

Great if cold day on the Kennet
Just wanted to say what a great day on the Kennet we had yesterday. It was cold but the fine company, your tea and steaks helped to keep us going. A beautiful place to fish and some really nice sized fish....Splendid!
Hopefully see you at the christmas...
fishing the Teise
I've been a member of the Teise for 2 years now, its very good fun. Around 7 miles of river and small reservoir with crystal clear water full of trout which you can fish in the winter to. Also there are only around a 100 members so its never crowded (in fact I only see a...
I'm back fropm scotland. Thanks for the advice it was most appreciated. In the end I fished Loch Blain near Archaracle. It's a small lock a mile walk up into the hills. The day we fished there temperature was about 24C which as you can imagine isn't great conditions for wild brownie...

thanks for the advice
Thanks for the advice, sounds good. I have got some nice blue coloured sea trout flies and will take up your advice of heading out on the car. In the past I have watched trout or possibly salmon swim along the contours of the island heading towards Moidart or the rive...
I live near lakedown so fish it relatively frequently. Here are my thoughts:
- Damsel by far is a consistent winner. Especially gold headed green with a bit of blue flash works well. Slow retrieve generally
- don't bother with specimen lake unless it looks clear. The top lake is...
Any thoughs on fishing wes coast of scotland with the fly. I aqm on Eilean Shona near Mull for a week mid may and was wondering if anyone has some tips on types of flies, types of fish to chase and techniques.
I am on holiday in Scotland in May on a small west coast Island called Eilean Shona which sits at the mouth of Loch Moidart. In the past I have seen the odd salmon and sea trout pod. I was wondering if anyone can suggest flies that would work well for these fish. I have a 9wt rod ready for...
