Fly Fishing for Trout at Chew Valley Lake and Mackerel Fishing at Hope's Nose

With warm weather forecast, I set off for my first visit of the season to Chew Valley Lake. Fishing the North Shore area of the lake from a boat with Martin Lowe, friend and customer, we opted to fish floating lines with teams of three nymphs on fifteen foot leaders. Trout were quick to oblige and the morning produced plenty of trout to over 3lb! After some lunch we headed back out, this time to try our luck in Herons Green Bay. Once again, just like the morning, the fishing was superb and we were soon netting more hard fighting rainbows. A fantastic start to my season on Chew! Speaking to Jon later that day revealed that he had spent the day at Hope's Nose near Torquay and had enjoyed a successful day catching mackerel using feathers and small lures.
