Double thickness Easykeel skids are new. Solid foam buoyancy blocks. Seats have been refurbished and the third central seat works...

Re: River Dart - Buckfastleigh to Staverton

Looks like the gully upstream of the bridge at Staverton has been trashed with a digger to make egress/access there very difficult, plus two signs. People have used this point as a take out for forty years but the new owner, who bought from the church commissioners, is hostile to paddlers and won't ...

Tavy pollution?

I had a very constructive meeting with people at South West Water about pollution, particularly on the Tavy and Walkham. There is a long anecdotal history of paddlers becoming ill after paddling, particularly below Tavistock. Grey smelly discharges have been seen there, even at low water levels, tho...

Re: River Dart - Buckfastleigh to Staverton

I have been advised by the owner of the river bank that Dart Angling Association do not own the fishing rights of this bank (Riverford Bridge to Staverton Bridge, river left. Also he is not a member of DAA. His concern is one of liability for any possible injury when paddlers use this route to acces...

Re: River Dart - Buckfastleigh to Staverton

The take out at Staverton has become an issue. This relates to the minor stream bed upstream of the bridge on river left, which has been used to my personal knowledge by paddlers for over forty years. Dart Angling Assoc own the fishing and said some time back that they had no objections to access/eg...
