North Devon

Had a long weekend away with the wife and of course the rod had to come to too!

Only managed to sneak out a couple of times for short sessions and not at the best of tide states but it was great to be out next to the salt again.

It was a new area to me and so it was nice to explore the rocks, reefs and gulleys for the first time.

No catches to report but a few near misses. A couple of schoolies hit my patchinko but failed to hook up and then a monster hit it too late yesterday evening, again failing to hook up, would have easily been my PB (I wouldnt like to guess the weight!). Water clarity wasn’t great but in a more sheltered spot I saw a nice schoal of fish swim past as well as a couple of mullet cruising. Also saw fish jumping way out as the light faded.

Hopefully this may give anyone heading that way in the coming weeks hope, the fish are definitely there! Was a great sunset last night which part made up for the missed biggie.

Now, where are those mayflies?…
