Something Fishy

The abundance of clear, fresh streams in and around Exmoor means that there are plenty of accessible fishing opportunities for all levels. Get yourself a permit or day ticket, widely available locally, find a quiet spot on the banks of the East Lyn, Barle or Exe River and cast off. You might catch yourself a nice brown trout or fresh salmon, depending on the time of year. Wimbleball Lake near Dulverton is regularly stocked with rainbow trout and has a ‘wheelyboat’ that can be used by disabled anglers. Alternatively there are a number of excellent fisheries in the area all of which run courses for beginners to ‘get hooked’.
