Guided fly fishing for trout

We offer full or half-day guided trips on several Dartmoor and Devon rivers. This location map may help you plan your trip.

Before your trip we will ask you about your prior experience and what you want out of your day. This helps us tailor the day around your desires and experience.

Westcountry rivers present an interesting set of challenges for experienced and novice anglers. We can help develop and improve the skills needed to catch wild fish in unspoilt surroundings.

If necessary we can lend suitable equipment (a 7' to 8 foot AFTM#3-5 rod and reel, wading staff). Please bring your own waders. We provide a range of tried and tested flies.

Fly Fishing Devon Gift Vouchers can be used to give a friend or relative a guided trip as a great Christmas, birthday or surprise present.

If requested we can: 
  • show you how to modify your cast to deal with awkward situations
  • demonstrate the need for stealth when approaching wild fish
  • share our thoughts on suitable equipment, fly selection and design
  • explain why trout lie in particular parts of a river  
  • describe how trout perceive your fly
A day's fishing also involves the unexpected, the unpredictable and the intangible.
Here are some images that give a flavour of what to expect on a guided trip.

"In the West Country you can catch trout from after breakfast till sunset, and enjoy the open air and the country for as long as the sun is in the sky" (Dermot Wilson, 'Fishing the Dry Fly', 1957)
