How's it fishing? Latest fishing reports

The second heat of the Bellbrook Cup took place at the end of May and a challenging day’s fishing it was too. The weather was cloudy at first but still warm although there was one very heavy down pour - nothing these anglers couldnt handle!

Tom West of Chudleigh caught this 13-2 monster on a Bloodworm. Tom was part of a family competition and won the day catching this with the last cast of the day!!!

We had a group of anglers from the charity Fishing for Heroes today - and what a day they had. The best fish was 11- 13 going to John Ratcliffe of Exeter - see photo below. This was a personal record for John who has only been fishing for two

Ian Connabeer from Totnes caught this cracking 11-13 Rainbow on a Blue Damsel on the Specimen lake at the weekend. He was chuffed as it's his biggest ever! It's been entered for TroutMasters but we know there is a bigger fish in there somewhere

As it pours with rain this morning it is nice to remember that only Monday the fishing was perfect - see Phil Clinch enjoying the winter sun and hard fighting fish. This was a 5 lber but it took 10 mins to land.

Cracking days fishing for Darren Bucknell from South Molton landing his three fish for 18-8 using his brand new Orvis rod (Christmas present!). Best fly was a Montana and best fish was 8-8 as pictured below. It will be entered in Tout Masters so

Nick Lake had a successful day on Tuesday with 5 fish from the normals for 13-12! Using a green and yellow blob he also had 2 wild brownies! He says it was worth the cold lol....

Better conditions on the weekend finally. Had some good sport with a range of flies producing.

Ian Nadin of Collumpton caiught his 5 fish limit on the normals with a total bag of 11 - 8 mostly caught on the drop using a Hairs Ear.

Some great fish caught at the weekend. 

Ian Nadin from Cullompton had a total bag of 4 fish for 20lb 8oz which included a 9lb 2oz and 6-10 from Ironmill - see piccies below.

(Photos at the bottom) The weather was kind to the competitors again with a nice calm day and not too much sun. Plenty of fish were caught and most of these were in the top 2 feet of water with slow sinking wet flies.
