Holiday Highlights

The last four days have consisted of trips to the River Usk, River Wye and  two Wye tributaries, all days were quite testing fishing under the conditions but with some memorable below:

Spectacular waterfall on the Upper River Usk at Cefn Rhosan Fawr.

Me wondering how many fish must be lurking down there but failing to catch them!

More of the beautiful River Usk.

Eagle eyed Nick...waiting for a trout to give itself up!

My first Yellow May Dun (Heptagenia sulphurea) spotted on the 1st of May.

Large Brook Dun (Ecdyonurus torrentis).

Fish of the weekend...taking a #18 Pheasant Tail Nymph.

One of a shoal of Minnow (Phoxinus Phoxinus) in full breeding colour.

Gale force winds making a normally placid Wye look like the Atlantic shoreline!
