I HAVE DECIDED to create this site for all those who have neither tried, or who would like to try Saltwater fly fishing/casting, it is in my opinion the most exciting, challenging and satisfying way to catch species such as bass, Pollack, mullet etc.
I started flyfishing here in Cornwall back in 1968 on College Reservoir for brown trout and it was here where I began to really enjoy the art of fly-casting and tying flies. At that time also I developed a love for night time bass fishing from our diverse coast-line, catching many good size bass up to 12lb, over many years living in Cornwall I have recorded all my fishing trips and as a result I have over 40 years of local knowledge
Saltwater Fly Fishing is the fastest growing sport for fly-fishing today. Here in Cornwall we have a excellent marine environment to offer the fly-fisherman, and due to the geological shape of Cornwall you can always find a fishing spot whatever the local conditions, if the north coast is blown out, then the south comes into play and vice-versa.
Personally, I adopt a catch-and-release method, enabling photographing the fish and returning it back to the water unharmed.
THE KEY to catching is all about finding the fish and where they’re feeding, there are hundreds of potential fishing locations, most of them holding little or no fish at all.
The things to look for are Sand-flats, bars, cut-away banks, and sudden drop-offs, rocky out-crops, and anything in short that influences the flow of the tidal current. These are places where at various times of the tide you will find fish.
