Fishing the Upper Teign
Devon Travel Blog› entry 1 of 1 › view all entries
After almost a month of beautiful weather something had to give. April being famous for itâ€™s â€™showersâ€™ decided to make a fool out of everyone by turning the rain up to eleven. I donâ€™t mind the rain except when it makes the water of the upper Teign rise to an unfishable level. With a little re-adjustment and finger crossing my Easter plans to fish the Teign came to fruition.
Checking the upper Teign webcam (thanks Nick!) I loaded up the car and headed out. For those looking at the webcam, if you can see the boulder on the top right nearest the bridge, the vegetation on the left in the river, and the boulder in the bottom right then you are good to go.
I was using a goldhead / tungsten bead nymph suspended beneath a foamed top Klinkhammer.
