15 x grayling 6 -17.5 inches mainly trotting, but also Tenkara and bugging. A foggy if warmish day in which we never saw the sun in this valley. The water was very clear and at about .59 on the Cilmery gauge. However, it was well into the afternoon before we located a decent shoal which included some very handsome large grayling. This was all very satisfying as darkness fell but there followed a somewhat tragic end to the day as the Landrover suffered an apparently catastrophic transmission failure. Arrived home by RAC relay to find a jury service summons on the door mat. What else can I expect to happen?

15 Grayling

Had a few hours on one of my favourite Grayling beats. River in great condition, just settling down after a lot of rain, with just a little colour. Took 4 Grayling, 3 of which were a good size, one about 1 and 1/2 lb. All taken on a black and bronze jig pattern

Started fishing at 11am, River was clear and high. Banks very slippery. Fished with halibut pellets to start, after a couple of hours changed to a bait I haven't used for years, luncheon meat.First cast had a typical barbel bite, but had a hook pull after a minute or so. Felt like a good fish, but they always do when you miss them. Nothing after. The only down side was a pheasant shoot on the other side of the river most of the day. Very loud.

Left South Wales in a sunny 8 degrees C and arrived at the beat in thick freezing fog at minus 5. Couldn't see the river outline from the parking spot due to the fog at the Church end so wasn't too hopeful. Tackled up more in desperation than hope but was pleased that I found the river! After an hour or so when some small Ladies had given themselves up to me, I got out of the river to untangle my line. I then realised how cold the air temperature actually was as I could see ice crystals forming on my waders. Despite greasing my rod eyes they too were frozen. Apparently I have 8 fingers and 2 thumbs but I couldn't feel any of them so with thickening fog and dropping temperatures I decided to head back to the car and called it a day.
Flies that worked were UV flash caddis.

Was it the gale, the rising waters, or my ineptitude? I guess I'll never know.

Well with the intention to christen my new ten foot three weight I've had for some time , saw the Ithon was fairly coloured at The Severn Arms bridge so mooched on to the Elan Valley , to catch up with some friends working at the visitors centre . . . Had a good look at the Afon Elan , which looked in super condition , and has fished well for small brownies this season . . .

Anyway heading back along the A44 towards Llanddewi , as wanted to see how this rod performed like with two heavy nymphs in tow !!

Well still up when I arrived at eleven ish, and coloured but perhaps clearing a little. Nice to get the new rod and french leader rig a bash . . .

Ha ha was surprised to get one on after twenty mins , and a perfectly formed little grayling, only six inches but alas rod christened , happy days!!!!

Bimbled up stream, from the bankside most of the time , working my team of two , pink shrimp and squirmy wormy . Again, like the Arrow , some serious bank erosion , but also some meander changes noticable to this section , stayed on terra ferma for the majority of the two hours I was there , bingo and another take , happy with the coloured indicator section , again a grayling against all odds , took the squirmy wormy , about ten inches , slipped back in , sorted.

An enjoyable session, if a bit frustrating due to rainfall last night , this will be lovely by Sunday I should imagine , and very fishable then !!! Still enjoyable and a good blast of fresh air , nice to get the french leader going with the new rod , lovely jubbly !!!! And two bonus grayling which made my day on what looked an out if sorts river !!!! Off home and a large glass of something medicinal me thinks !!!!!

The Wye was in perfect condition for a winter fishing session; likewise the weather. I was not disappointed, with barbel up to 7lbs and the best chub over 41/2 lbs. Halibut pellet and meat were the baits used with feeder method.

6 Barbel, 2 Chub
