    Default River Taw (N Devon) 2020

    Hello Peeps!

    The Taw opens in about five weeks time. Lets hope this season gives us better conditions and a few more fish than the last two.

    The RTFA AGM will be held in the Palazzo at the High Bullen Hotel and Country Club on Friday 27th March 2020 commencing at 1730 hrs.

    The Guest Speaker is Mr Iltydd Griffiths, Welsh Sewin legend and AAPGAI Master Fly Fishing Instructor who will talk on Sea Trout fishing and the future of Sea Trout in our rivers.

    The AGM will be followed by the RTFA Fundraiser sale of fishing and the evening will be rounded off with a 3 course Dinner (details of which will be promulgated in due course).

    RTFA members are urged to support the event if they possibly can.

    I will share the results of the 2019 Beat Survey as soon as they are confirmed

    Tight lines

    RTFA Beat survey figures for 2019 Season. Please bear in mind that 2019 was another drought year. No real rain after the beginning of May until the second week in September. Official figures reveal that the catchment as a whole received the lowest rainfall of any West Country river. Salmon 82, Sea trout 250 & some 2,700 Brown trout.

    The good news was that there were definitely more good sized peal in the system than the previous year (also a drought year) although the number of dedicated Peal Anglers is at an all time low and that good numbers of fish have been reported on the redds on the few occasions this Autumn's torrential rains have allowed some observation. Still pretty disappointing though.

    Best regards
