Yesterday was a day of firsts in fact quite a few firsts for me the executive summary: The notion to target some bass started about a week ago when I  had to visit Aberystwyth Hospital for an appointment and arriving early into town I wandered a little. I discovered “Aber Fishing Tackle” and of course […]

With my Wye/Usk foundation “wild streams” annual permit I can attack any number of wild streams if they haven’t been booked for the day. The website is remarkably efficient in terms of providing notification of which streams are about to be unfished. Today I had a plethora of choices and I have been trying to […]

It is early March here in mid-Wales and spring is trying to bring a burst of new life to town. There are daffodils on every grass verge and new lambs are starting to populate the local fields despite the lingering winter chill. It isn’t warm but it is warmer than it was which means that […]

This past December was one of the wettest on record we had water leaking through the mortar of the chimney breast and spreading chill damp patches on the walls of the loft space. The Wye had been in full flood breaching its banks in a few spots only days ago. But after three or four […]

It has been wet and windy here in Mid-Wales although we have avoided most of the “Yellow Weather Warnings” which seem to bypass us to the North West or East. I have taken some time away from my cottage restorations and did hope that I might try my hand at some winter grayling fishing. Trouble […]

Without many fishing options I am still obsessing about flies. Some more thoughts on trout and fly design.

By Seamus on 2/2/2023 8:20:44 AM • Views (41)
I remain convinced that the idea of close copy fly design is erroneous. That there are other things we need to consider in terms of producing and fishing more effective patterns.

Of late I have had little of anything much to do but tie flies and perhaps think more than I should. Time does that for you it leaves space to think and one can do too much of it. But I have recently been working on filling a fly box with patterns in preparation of […]

Having recently moved to the UK in mid-winter and not having access to any winter grayling fishing where I am located it didn’t seem likely that I would have much to comment on for a while. Generally I rely on experiences on the water to stimulate some sort of thought or provide some observations I […]

Modification of a landing net can prove to be a boon for both angler and fish. Hands free stress free catch and release.

Trying to enjoy once last really good day on the streams before my departure from SA proved harder than you might think. More failures than successes but then its fishing.

Waiting is a necessary evil of travel it turns out sometimes it isn't a bad strategy on a trout stream either.

Experimentation and modification of the F Fly has resulted in a new favourite pattern for me. Success on the rivers of Mid Wales has secured this fly's place in my boxes

What’s this? A new initiative to post some information primarily designed for novice fly anglers if you see “The Beginners Page Logo” it means that the post is primarily designed to help novice anglers but of course everyone is welcome to read and comment. I hope that you will it might help end up with […]

A short post about the origins of fly casting why it is different and encouragement that anyone can learn to do it.

Tough days aren’t always bad days Things for many of us are returning to some sort of normal after all the upsets of Covid lockdowns vaccinations and the like. I can freely enter a bottle store and purchase some kind of alcoholic beverage and legally now transport that in my car without fear of arrest […]

Catching lots of fish and beginning to experiment I switched over to 8X Stroft GTM tippet. What started out as a challenge actually became standard operating procedure for the rest of the trip.

After literally months of planning and interruptions related to COVID regulations last year we finally got our moment ‘in the sun’. Our trip to the Bokong River in the highlands of Lesotho was on. It’s a long trip from Cape Town on the Southern tip of the African continent to reach the “Mountain Kingdom” even […]

Thoughts on tying better ant patterns with more defined segmentation. To me segmentation is a key factor in success of ant patterns.

Last year failure and disappointment in 2022 hope springs eternal as we plan another trip to the Bokong River in Lesotho
