Hello

Work/family/life has been v.stressfull of late but ive managed to get 3/4 day break from 17th Sept - Ideally id like to go away for 3-4 days - chill out - fish a river during the day and have somewhere peaceful to be in the evenings

any thoughts gratefully received

thanks

Helston area - get in touch with Austin Goldsmith, Oz, and go out on Zen2 fly fishing for bass....

The Fox & Hounds at Eggesford (North Devon) has fishing available through Devon School of Fly Fishing and the Deer Park hotel Honiton (East Devon) also has fishing available. they are both lovely peaceful settings too, and nice hotels.

There is also day ticket fishing on Exmoor through the Dulverton Angling Association (see Lance Nicholson gun shop website) with some nice accommodation nearby.#

And plenty more fishing on the Westcountry Angling Passport scheme.

Well within my comfort zone
Try my home town of Usk. Beautiful fishing, lovely pubs and local surroundings. Call Jean at Sweets fishing shop in Usk 01291 672552. Day tickets are available. Nick Fallowfield-Cooper - Sweets of Usk

Hope that helps

+1....what he said, rivers further west in Wales have had some issues with agricultural issues & probably wouldn't provide the activity you seek. Tight lines & hope you decide on a good location. :thumbs: Let us know how you get on.

There's lots of nice fishing on the fishing passport in Wales. Shouldn't be too hard to find something that suits in amongst that lot. Then just look for a convenient cottage/hotel/B&B/campsite. It's cooling down around here, so you should be able to get some nice end of season fishing with a bit of luck.
