Devon Interlude

A days fly fishing in Devon on the river Torridge.
This lovely stretch of water is available through The Westcountry Angling Passport scheme.

Oliver Kites writes a fascinating chapter called "Torridge Interlude" in his book Nymph Fishing in Practice.
This excellent book gives some very relevant information on nymph fishing and small stream river fishing.
Also many of the waters that he writes about are still day ticket waters that can be fished for sensible money.

The rod used was a 7ft 4wt Superfast cane rod:

With a 3ft Mono Furled leader:

Flies were a Tungsten Nymph and CDC & Elk both size 14
