Arrived at the fishery around 7am. Within five minutes of starting to fish the rain began followed quickly by a strengthening wind. The river was very shallow with only a few deeper areas to fish. Tried the full length of the beat using French leader techniques but without any success. I had intended to fish my way back to the car but by this time the rain and wind prevented any further fishing. Did I enjoy myself...yes. Did I get wet....yes. Will I return....definitely yes.

Did not see one fish over 2cm move all day despite good conditions. Seeing kingfishers and dippers was some consolation. Easy access and wading made for a relaxing day.

Had a full day on this stretch, and did not have a take between us. It is easy to wade and fish, the weather was ok, water level was ok, maybe it was just us. However would not book this beat again.
Apologies for tardy response, only arrived back this afternoon.

I had booked Abernant and took a peek at 10am. I shouldn't have bothered as surely a wash-off with the Llanstephan gauge over 3 foot! However, predicting a no-go I had booked Upper Glochfaen as a contingency and Abernant was on the way. 45mins further North into mid-Wales proper and a very different Wye at Upper Glochfaen.
I could see a very high debris line from the days before but the river was dropped and very clear. I fished for 5 hours and was very cautious with wading as per WUF instruction. Tried a variety of Grayling wet fly with teams up to three and also experimented with a floating strike-indicator. No fish caught, felt or seen, but I enjoyed the day and because I was looking at my feet a lot, I did spot what I presume was a Salmon Redd in fairly shallow water - quite impressive.
I very much prefer dry fly fishing and today exposed my lack of knowledge and experience with wet fly techniques. Perhaps time for a guided lesson?

Hard fishing in high water. 3 salmon seen running upstream.
A pity there were no grayling about.

Unfortunately no fish were caught on the day. My original plan was to fish the Doldowlod beat although when I arrived the water was very coloured and the river was running very wild so I moved on a bit further up. The water at Llangurig was much clearer so I decided to go ahead as this beat has produced some trophy fish in the past for me even when the fishing conditions weren't great. Unfortunately this wasn't the same. I only had a single take this day and the fish was lost in seconds so the only thing remained was to look at the beauty of the scenery as this was the only fish for the rest of the day. This was a day with heavy rains that was feeding the river which was running fast, a bit high and slightly coloured.

Magic evening. Fished lower beat from 5pm. Some fish rising when I arrived but couldn't tempt them . Switched to nymphs and had 2 nice trout of about 8" and 1 of about 12". Then saw my first wild otter which appeared from nowhere on opposite bank jumped into the river, explored the pool and headed off downstream. The encounter only lasted say half a minute but was still magical.
