Kayak trip to Lyme Regis

Spent the day kayaking with my youngest son kayaking the ledges to the west of Lyme Regis. An early Bass got me excited but this was short lived as the hours went by without a further take. Over the size limit but it went back as a present to the gods although I felt they didn't return the favour. Towards the end of the day the Wrasse came on the feed savaging my soft plastics and costing me dearly. Great little scrappers on light tackle though. It was a beautiful late summer day though with very little wind and fantastic scenery.

Wellow beauty...

Red sorted me a guest ticket on Avon Tributaries section of the Wellow. Beautiful stretch nearer its confluence with the Cam downstream to the Knowle beat I am used to fishing. The fishing was not as easy as I was expecting and the wild fish were just not showing. After a change of fly to a green fluro shrimp pattern, on Red's recommendation, I picked up a nice stocked Rainbow in one of the deeper sections. Funny how that fly will probably be returned to the box and will not be used for another 12 months until I am left scratching my head.  Fantastic sunny day in a secluded valley on the outskirts of Bath.
