Guided trips on river and lake

Wild brown trout gallery 2019

Thought I’d post a few brown trout images from my fishing adventures in Wales this year. The fishing was excellent on the rivers and llyns, especially early and late in the season.

Welsh rivers and lakes have really abundant stocks of wild fish – long may it continue! Looking forward to next spring already….

Fly Fishing The Elan Valley

I recently enjoyed a cracking late season day roaming the banks of Craig Goch reservoir, Elan valley, with my good mate Alan Parfitt of the Gwent Angling Society.

The Elan dams really are a beautiful part of Wales to fish for wild trout, especially in autumn. We walked and fished our way around the whole of Craig Goch – a total of 7.5 miles!

The fish were quite spread out and not really in the mood, but we did capture plenty of pretty browns to about a pound in weight. We probably spent more time walking than fishing though, but it was worth it – a breathtaking place to enjoy a few hours with the fly rod.

Alan worked his magic with the camera once again – the pictures below are just a sample. The best are being saved for a new ‘Fishing In Wales‘ website and possibly a magazine feature.

Fly Fishing In Iceland – A Few Images

I visited Iceland for the first time in in July, using outfitter Fish Partner to book the fishing. To be fair, the trip was incredible – I’d definitely do it again. A very detailed write up of the trip will feature in an upcoming issue of Fly Fishing & Fly Tying Magazine.

I took an enormous amount of images, many of which were not quite magazine standard, but worth posting for posterity. With so many of them spare, I’ve upload a few ‘b-roll’ images here as a gallery. It should give you an idea of what a special place Iceland is.
