How's it fishing? Latest fishing reports

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.

The Mayfly are well and truly here – but the hatches seem quite brief and unpredictable. The weather has been quite changeable and there has been some tricky wind but get your timing right and there are some classic conditions to be enjoyedJ
