Fly Fishing Welsh Rivers – Early Season Success

It’s been a great start on the Welsh rivers, despite the variable conditions this month.

Local knowledge is everything, so if you are looking for a fly fishing guide, an instructional day in Wales this season or to improve your fly fishing skills then please get in touch.

I started my season on the river Usk in cold and exceptionally low conditions, however I did manage my first 4 fish of the season on dry flies, including a 19 incher.

With the current unsettled spell the main rivers have been blown out since mid-March, however I have found some excellent nymph fishing on the smaller streams and tributaries that would otherwise be hopeless in low water conditions. Some of these can produce unexpected surprises as well as fantastic numbers of smaller fish!

New Fly Fishing Wales Website – March 2023

All good things come to an end they say. That’s what happened to the previous version of this blog website, when a hosting issue meant I lost almost all of the content on it, about 6 years of stuff.

With a new hosting provider the site is back online; an opportunity for a fresh new look and even better fly fishing content. It’s still a work in progress, but bear with me and keep an eye out for old and new blog posts as and when I re-upload them.

In the mean time, you can book a guided day with me here.
