Fishing in Devon
Imagine yourself in the tranquillity of the south west countryside, on your own exclusive beat of the River Exe landing your dry fly in front of a rising trout or just as your fly is swinging through the pool it goes tight and you find yourself attached to a salmon!
The River Exe
The River Exe winds its way across Devon and Somerset for more than 50 miles before reaching the sea at the substantial Exe Estuary ria in Exmouth. This large body of flowing water is home to a large number of coarse, game and sea fishing species making it a challenge to anglers all year round. The River Exe always has been, and still is, a favourite among those who fish it – not really surprising when it contains legendary fish like the 64lb Salmon Richard Voysey caught in 1924!
Hartnoll Hotel Beat
Our exclusive beat on the west bank of the River Exe, extending a quarter of a mile upstream from Stoodleigh bridge and approximately half a mile downstream our guests can explore the varied fly fishing opportunities for brown trout, sea trout and salmon.
If you are new to fly fishing we can offer tuition on a full day basis inclusive of rods and equipment hire. There are spots on our beat where one can learn to cast in little more than wellies, so no other specialist equipment is required
For the more experienced angler our beat is perfect to “hone your skills” or to learn a new casts and techniques under expert guidance.
