Useful Club Tips


The Exe and Barle are spate driven rivers, so it is vitally important to other club members to inform the fishing club manager should you have an incounter with a salmon. Enableing many of them to plan their week ahead.Seatrout
Fly fishing is the favored method of fishing for club members. Should you wish to spin, or if conditions dictate, could you please use a single 'pinched' or barbless hook on your lure.

Brown Trout

We have a stocking policy for brown trout of about 80-100, 8 to 10 incher's put in each beat every year. If the salmon are not running, you could always have a days entertainment trout fishing.

Winter grayling fishing, (16th 0ctober to 13th February)

Members and their guest may go fishing on any day of the week including weekends on either beat. All they have to do is email the fishing manager letting him know where and when they will be going. He will not necessarily respond unless he see's a clash coming, in which case he would inform both parties, to be more specific. Raintrout

Rainbow trout are not indigenous to the river and if caught should not be returned. Could members also make themselves aware of the RETA Voluntary Code for the catch and release of salmon. The club perfers that all members follow this code.
