Another fishing year has snuck up on us! 2017 has arrived and like every year, it’s full of promise for the coming months -promise of fish to be caught and fishing venues to be enjoyed. Looking back at last years goals it seems I succeeded to some extent – i.e: to catch more sea fish on the fly, (thanks to my summer holidays on the Scilly Isles). Having said that, other than a single exploratory trip to the Teign Estuary I totally failed to find more saltwater fly fishing venues closer to home – in fact I shamefully didn’t really try… With that in mind my new year fishing resolution for 2017 is to not only do more salt water fly fishing but to explore more and new salty venues with the fly rod. It’ll be interesting to look back this time next year and count up how many venues and different species I’ve managed over the coming year.
So, alongside the usual boat fishing and coarse fishing I just need to find more time to dedicate to SWFF. Easy hey?
