Fishing Trips Leisure Trips Boat Maintenance
Come aboard "Fender" my 18ft open boat. A family boat for many years, which now caters for small groups. Boat fish in the sheltered waters off Appledore where the picturesque river Torridge and river Taw meet the Atlantic. All fishing equipment and safety gear is provided on board, just simply book your place, turn up and dress for the weather!

You do not have to have any experience of fishing, your skipper will help (including the mucky bits like baiting the hook and taking your fish off!)

Fish for bass, bream, flounder, mackerel and gurnard with 2, 3 and 4hr fishing trips available.

Catch it, keep it, cook it – talk to your skipper (who is a qualified chef) for cooking tips for your catch of the day!

Prices from £15.00 per person depending on the trip. I'm in the water for the season from mid April and I am taking bookings now! Should you like to book or have any questions please contact me on 07866 314260

As an active member of the RNLI for over last 20 years you're in safe hands with all life jackets provided.
I can organise trips to suit just you or you, your family and friends. I hopefully look forward to welcoming you onboard soon.

P.S. New to the area? On holiday with your boat? Just got your first boat? Need a local knowledge trip? Let me help you and show you the local area…Where to go on the river and what to stay away from. This is not a RYA course with an exam but is practical advice from someone who knows the area to help you get confident on the river with your own boat. Please note Gary still recommends that you do an RYA course, as well as this knowledge trip. Please call for prices, if you have any questions or would like to book: 07866 314260
Gary also recommends that you use the RNLI free service that looks at the safety aspects of your boat.
