Current Tactics

Dever Springs

A Trout Fishery located in the beautiful Hampshire countryside offering fly fishing experiences and fun days out that are second to none.

Winter/Spring 2023/24

We would recommend using:

  • 6/7 weight outfit with a floating line is ideal, or a 5 weight outfit for a bit more fun when stalking or when distance casting is not required.
  • A minimum of 12ft of leader material in 6-8lb breaking strain.
  • Don’t make the mistake of fishing to deep, in good conditions most fish are caught in the top few feet of water.

 Fly Patterns:

  • By far the best fly at Dever is a Damsel, its on the catch return everyday!
  • Small natural imitations such as bloodworms, hares ears, pheasant tails, montanas and buzzers.
  • Try fishing the buzzer with an indicator.
  • Stalking Bugs when the sun is shinning!
  • Fritz lures cats whiskers and dancers on Willow Lake only.

A roaming approach is usually the most productive, either:

  • Keeping on the move trying to stalk individual fish and then casting, or;
  • Casting ‘blind’ spending a few minutes exploring each swim then moving on.

Stalking can produce the biggest fish at Dever Springs.

 Managers Tip:

We now sell individual Fulling Mill flies so we can suggest the best pattern for the day.
