About Fishing Guides Devon…

Welcome to Fishing Guides Devon

We are a guiding company based near Plymouth in Devon.

My name is Paul (Bassman) Gordon, I have been Bass fishing for over 30 years and have a good understanding and knowledge of our spiky friends.

I have been fishing my local estuaries and beaches for long enough to know a thing or two about catching those silver bars, i have also been lucky enough to join the doubles club on both boat and shore with an 11lb 8oz shore caught beauty pictured below.

It’s all about catch and release these days and due to the current restrictions in  force , you must return all Bass for the first six months of the year, but after July 1st you may if you wish take home one Bass per day, per angler.


I help others achieve Bass fishing success through one to one guiding and my media work on my facebook page called Bassmans Bounty, also my you tube channel and twitter, @bassmans_bounty.

I am now well established as a  presenter/filmmaker and have a  following for making Quirky exciting fishing videos that inspire you and make you want to pick up a rod and go fishing!

I have my own presenting style and it’s fair to say I get a bit carried away on camera, it’s just how fishing makes me feel I guess!

I am sponsored by Tronixpro and get to test and promote the latest tackle finery including  their associates Vercelli, Yuki,  HTO and Eagle Claw.

Collectively on Fishing Guides Devon we can review existing and new products , be it the latest Continental rods or new innovative end tackle!

or the latest lures and

I’m delighted to have  good friend Martin (Larks)Larkin involved as my  advisor/companion/Mentor and technical support, a total fishing fanatic with over 40 years experience.

Martin is the current UK shore Conger record holder, a record which has stood for over two decades, but he is nationally renowned as one of the very best Mullet anglers in the country,

we are planning to make a series of  how-to videos in the future which will be awesome!, No stranger to the camera, Larks has already made several fishing programs with Henry Gilby, a and guided Matt Hayes and the Duke Mick Brown to their first conger Eels in Plymouth.

Total Fishing conger episode below…

Martin has an unrivalled understanding of fishing in general and has mentored me for over 20 years!

A positive mental attitude and the belief that you are doing everything right to catch fish, as well as detailed minute by minute guidance is all part of the experience when fishing , which is why we do not fish when you are out on a guided session

all of our attention is focused on you and your session,

Age Lundström is on board to show you the light side of lure fishing in and around Plymouth, An LRF wizard and lure nut who is more than happy either on a species hunt or a Midnight bass hunt!

be it on the Bass, Wrasse or mini species, Age eats, sleeps and breaths lure fishing and has his own territory around Plymouth, from the River Tamar to Sutton harbour and the river Plym
New for 2018, Conger Eel and Bull Huss adventures, see guiding prices for details

There are no guarantees in fishing but I am confident that you will learn new lighter ways to fish using the latest fishing rods, methods and tips that will give you the edge next time you go fishing, from basic watercraft to rig choice and bait/Lure presentation.
