The sun is out at last, and we hope you have been able to dust down the rods and go fishing. Have you visited Exe Valley Fishery recently? If not here is short a reminder of the spectacular scenery and fishing to be experienced at our beautiful Somerset location captured superbly on film by Blair Woodland.

However, if you are now gagging to dash down this Saturday 21st April 18 (please come on Sunday 22nd instead!) because the site will be closed for the day as we are hosting a private event. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Meanwhile if there are any budding young anglers out there please give Fred Leach a call who is hosting a Youth Fly Fishing Day on Saturday 20th May 2018 at Exe Valley Fishery. There will be a group of qualified instructors on hand teaching the basics of fly casting and fishing for Trout. In previous years this successful event has produced Trout of up to 6lbs for the children, with many discovering a new passion for the outdoors and fishing. Please call Fred on 01398 331019 for further details.
Until next time, thanks for reading and enjoy your fishing!
Sue & Nick.
