Fishing in Devon

New contributor Kelly Double extols the virtues of fly fishing and Devon and introduces free fly casting lessons in London

 

North Devon and Exmoor is one of the best places in Britain to experience the ultimate in traditional fieldsports. Fishing is no exception here, with salmon and sea trout caught frequently across the north of the county in some of county’s most stunning landscapes. It truly is the most wonderful place to cut your teeth on the riverside and enjoy the peace of the beautiful surroundings.

 

Highbullen Hotel is ideally situated on a spur of land between two of the best fishing rivers in Devon, the River Mole and the River Taw. The hotel enjoys beautiful scenic views of both valleys from its grounds and thus it the perfect destination for idyllic fishing escapes.

About two miles from Highbullen is the hotel’s own beat. It features about three quarters of a mile of single bank fishing with seven named pools. Each is quite different but all have yielded salmon in recent seasons.

 

Highbullen can also arrange for fishing on other local beats – on the Taw, the Mole and the Bray – and they can arrange for a ghillie and tuition from experienced local fishermen if required.

 

If you’re a complete novice I highly recommend that you get the hang of casting before you head on to the riverside. To do so, I suggest a lesson by Orvis in Green Park in London. They are free to attend and the next will be held on Thursday 15th September at 6pm. Led by Orvis’ experts, attendees will be introduced to the sport and be guided in the technique also. For further information and to book to attend, telephone +44 (0) 20 3137 9086.
