Christmas at the Arundell

Fly Fishing & Fly Fishing School

Rivers, Lake, Saltwater & Tuition

The Arundell has long been known as one of the best fly fishing schools in the country and particularly Devon.  Our 22 miles of waters have been called a fisherman’s paradise, with many guests coming back year after year for these totally wild waters and the fish that swim in them.

We are delighted to encourage all ages as they take their first steps.  In today’s busy world, we believe fly fishing is the ultimate therapy.

Day Tickets for our river or lake are available for £45 and all tackle & equipment are available here for hire.
