River Avon
The Avon has been Paul's "home river" for over 30 years and is where he developed roll cast variations to deal with the problem of catching 'spooky' trout in tree-lined rivers.

We are delighted to be able to revive guiding and teaching fishing and fly casting on the Avon which was begun in 1919 by Mr J.B.S. "Jack" Notley who was born in Diptford Rectory in 1893. Mr Notley taught on the river until shortly before his death in 1988.

He described the Avon as "one of the finest Trout streams in the West Country. Little known and little fished, a grand fly river and no short risers. I have fished it over 40 years and much prefer it to any of the numerous rivers I have fished including the Kennett and Lambourn."

Unfortunately in 2017 the Rake Beat on the River Avon has been withdrawn from the Westcountry Angling Passport scheme.

There is a webcam located by the bridge at the upstream end (Pembertons' Pool) of the beat.
