Hi guys,
In mid May I'm going on a small trip to Dittisham and will be fishing on the River dart. I will be staying in a small white cottage about 25 metres away from the Ferry Boat inn and near the jetty where all the locals tie up their boats and I was wondering what type of fish there are in the river dart and best types or baits and what type of fishing I should attempt whilst I'm down there
Many thanks,
Ben park

I don't do shore fishing, but the dart is renowned for it's bass and mullet fishing. I'll find you a link for that. You could try this charter boat while your there, pick up at Dartmouth, either the skerries locally for the plaice or try an offshore trip for the wreck fishing. The guys name is Ian and he welcomes individuals and is always willing to help newbies out to enable you to have a great day.


you will have a nice time down there, a magical place to visit.

Fishing Dartmouth, mixture of boat and shore, loads of info to look at:

 Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.

New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.
Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.
Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.
new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.
Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because  they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..

Cross the river on the top ferry and walk along upriver for a short distance and you will see "the grids" (groynes) fish these at low water up with peeler..............super bass fishing.



"When through the woods and forest glades I wanderAnd hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,And hear the brook, and feel the breeze;and see the waves crash on the shore,Then sings my soul..................
