Tony Mair's ridiculous mission (his words, not ours) to catch a trout from every river in the UK has continued throughout 2012. You may think he's mad, we think he's an inspiration to angler's everywhere! Tony contacted us after the season closed on 30th September with some brief thoughts on the mission so far. Check out his website ... it's well worth a read. My season has ended, as it should (for a Northern Hemisphere Troutman) on September 30th. The…
When the mighty crack appeared to create what is now Monsal Dale, it must have frightened the living daylights out of the residents. It was so long ago they were not two-legged, but even the four have feelings. Have you seen its scale and glory? I have...and the limestone fed clear waters, alive with insects, of the beautiful River Wye runs through it en route to join the Derwent, then the Trent, and out via the Humber to the North…

The brown trout fishing in Scotland can be broadly divided between loch…

I like fishing for brown trout, probably because of the varied sporting opportunities they offer. Being based in Devon I am lucky to fish and guide on some great…
If you are out there fishing for rainbow or brown trout you are fishing for the largest trout you can find. If this is the case then perhaps you should try using a larger fly for your fly fishing expeditions. The larger the trout the more likely it is to want to consume larger meals. Large trout like to sit in deep slow water and tend to not use very much of their energy. This allows them to be opportunistic…
Help "save the salmon" in Carmarthenshire Carmarthenshire's salmon are set to benefit from a new partnership project between Carmarthenshire Fishermen's Federation (CFF) and Environment Agency Wales. The project – Supporting Catch and Release has been set up to help save Carmarthenshire salmon by encouraging more anglers to release their catch back to the river.
