About Time Really

20170511_121552.jpg

After sorting a few things out this morning I thought I would go and have a fish for a couple of hours, when I arrived down the river the water level had risen slightly as Llyn Clywedog is releasing water, there was a couple of guys worming and had next to no luck so they told me.

I set up with a dry sedge and a size 18 black nymph and quietly worked my way up stream, with in around 10 casts the dry dipped under and a grayling had taken the nymph, in the first run I hooked and landed 5 grayling but no trout, I had to turn round and go to another run as one of the wormers had set up camp at the top of my run, but never mind loads of water to fish, in the next run only 2 small grayling, but as I walked to the next run I noticed 4-5 fish just below an overhanging bush I put a longer cast up stream and let it drift down under the bush and dingo 4 fish in all and yet again all grayling, so I moved to a fast run to see if the trout were hanging about in the faster water but no just grayling again, so it was time to head for home.

What A Morning

20161207_142401

Took a trip on the bike over to the Wye today as it had warmed up quite a lot, I have so much stuff to do at home I must admit I was in two minds, but it was really worth it, starting in the first run I fished for around ten minutes with not a touch and then it started it was almost a fish a cast, in two ish hours 30 + grayling and 7 trout, I fished new Zealand style with a KJ Olive nymph and my Orange and Violet nymph, I also had a fish come up to the dry but I didn’t hook it, I did see another 3 fish rise but I didn’t see any insect life in the air or on the water, most of the fish were under the pound mark, the biggest fish was an out of season brown trout around a pound and quarter.

Even managed to get home and get the decorating done before the wife got home from work.
