The Rising Sun Inn, Umberleigh, North Devon – The stunning River Taw runs nearly passed the door providing some of the finest fly fishing in the West Country. The Inn still retains over a mile of private fishing split into two beats consisting of sixteen named pools including the famous Bear pit, Hut pool and Home pool. The season runs between March and September. In the last few seasons the beats have produced fantastic fly fishing specimens – a 11.5lb sea trout, a 23lb salmon and brown trout up to 2.5lb so the opportunities to catch a fish of a lifetime are here. Think you can beat this? Jules, the Landlord, has fished this river for over 40 years and is always available for advice over a pint and offers a Ghillie service for the less experienced fly fisher. Tackle hire available. Spinner March & April. Fly 1st April – September. Telephone: 01769 560447 .
