Mid Summer Share

Its mid summer the longest days are here now and it doesn’t get any better out at the waters edge. Over the next few days it be would great to share a few images of summer at the waters edge. So lets see some images of fish, water and fishing. Lets get away from those standard grip and pose shots of angler with fish and try to get a bit of atmosphere and the joys of angling. Please either email to me at or just post on the North Devon Angling News Facebook page and I will transfer from there.

Next weekend I publish a picture special of North Devon Angling Views! Thanks for your response so far

Blue skies, calm seas and clear water the lure fishers paradise. Daniel Welch has been enjoying some superb sport off North Devon’s spectacular coastline.

Awesome light gear fishing for pollack on a 16g Nomura rod. Loads of pollack around 4-5lb and got smashed up by a couple big ones. So moved to a slightly heavier setup and had a 10lb 3oz beauty caught on a size 4 fiiish candy green lure supplied by High Street Tackle

Seizing the opportunity he collected his son Ollie up from school to take him on short mullet session. An LRF outfit with 10lb b.s Spiderwire braid and size 3 customized Mepps lure resulted in Ollie landing a fine thin lip of 3lb 6oz.
