South Devon Bumble 2014!

Each year Nick Bennett from the Lure Forum puts on a South Devon Bumble, whether the fishing is good or not at the time it’s all about meeting new people, chatting about fishing and having a proper laugh! A brilliant weekend away from all the boring day to day crap we all go through and a good time to get some proper time on the water… fishing!

A slow August

August has been my worst month for a few years now and just never seems to produce many good fish.

A few off the top!

Finally… They succumbed to the surface lures. The water has warmed a fair bit know and there are more baitfish present. Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that if it was colder and there wasn’t any baitfish they wouldn’t take it OTT because everything is different and a slowly worked surface lure I believe is pretty hard for any Bass to refuse or at least to have a good look…
