West Country Wild Trout Festival

Join the Arundell Arms for the inaugural West Country Wild Trout Festival from the 20th to 23rd May.

Fish the peak of the trout season on the Tamar and tributaries and enjoy casting to free-rising wild brownies in beautiful surroundings. The Arundell Arms has 20 miles of its own water on the Tamar system, meaning that you will have up to a mile of river all to yourself. During the festival, our resident AAPGAI instructors – David Pilkington and Tim Smith – will be running daily demos and workshops which you may like to attend to help you sharpen up your fishing skills. They will also be on the beats to give help and advice during each afternoon. The festival promises to be great fun and a chance to experience the best of West Country trout fishing on some of the region’s finest wild trout water. For more information please click
