Hi All

Any tips or advice on fishing the river Taw? I'm off to the river in late May so any advice on flies tackle etc would be greatly appreciated.

I used to fish there regularly this time of year, and loved those beats.
Unless the river is up a LOT, then an intermediate or slow sinker is probably the best all-round line.
The river can run quite coloured, almost with a greenish tint, if there has been recent rain. So flies with Jungle Cock (shrimp flies) and/or a bit of yellow (Torrish-types) worked for me.
