With the bright sun and 28 degree heat forecast I expected a difficult day nymphing the bedrock gullies downstream to get a few fish. After a fruitless morning working the pocket water up to the confluence of the two rivers, I switched over to a small dry and decided to sit and wait it out in some of the dry fly flats now that olives and sedges were hatching off and midge clouds hung above the water.

This turned out to be the right choice when a few fish dimpled underneath tight overhanging trees in shallow water. After taking a small fish to a splashy rise I sent the fly further underneath the trees and after spotting the tiniest of rises I set the hook into a nice fish of about a pound. Using the same method of attack I hit into another fish where the water began to pick up pace, a fish that stripped a fair bit of line off!

Happy days for me as the fish beat my previous Usk best. The photo really doesn't show just how plump both of the bigger fish were. I love fishing this beat as it has such a massive variation of water to tackle. It is the kind of beat you could fish 100 times over and still not know the best way to tap into the stunning population of specimen trout it holds!

The River started rising after rain and was coloured and pushing through by midday. It was a gamble that did'nt pay off.

A great day on this beautiful stretch of river. Managed two 14" fish and a fine 18" specimen, could well have been 2lb 1/2. All to nymphs as little was rising, although I did spot a few good fish during the day - usually after they had seen me. Also had a brief foray up the Crai, which is hard going initially but there are some more promising pools further upstream. Not that I could get anything out of them today!

I was only able to fish for a few hours in the afternoon and early evening. It was not a great display of angling skill, with a few fish missed and lost. But a beautiful 1.5 lb trout saved the day on the last cast, falling for an IOBO Humpy.

I fished for five hours from around 10am to 3pm. Very few fishing rising during these times and so I fished with nymphs. The Pantyscallog beat is wild and beautiful, the river here is small and has lots of typical upland features with waterfalls, gullies and streamy riffles. During my brief visit I only found fish in the deeper sections with reasonable flow. They were small to 10 inches. I also met and had a long chat with the owner who lives at Pantysgallog House and who was very nice.

My first time on this beat. Fished for about four hours through some pretty heavy showers. I saw enough to realise that this beat must be a joy to fish in more favourable conditions. The wading isn’t easy and I wasn’t prepared to tackle the electric fence that barred the suggested walk to the downstream beat start after about 400 metres.

Conditions seemed perfect with a trickle of various upwinged and yellow sallys. Nothing rising so fish caught on nymphs.

Amazingly beautiful, a real treat. Hot and clear, but most of the beat is under tree cover. We wanted a river with a wild stream beat feel and Pantysgallog did not disappoint. We'd fished Cefn Rhosan Fawr the evening before and stayed at the 'pretty perfect' Penpont campsite down the road. There was a lot of variety to fish, slow, fast, gullies, pools, a bit of everything really. My fishing partner did rather better than me catching five, all on a duo nymph set up. Many of the fish were seemingly down low in the fast water. I was getting slightly frustrated but eventually managed to hook the biggest of the day, again on a nymph in a deep fast moving section, in a section of flat water. As I said, this place is a real treat.

I’ve tried this beat a few times now mainly because it’s a stunning stretch of water and feels very secluded and peaceful, especially in the woods. The fishing is always difficult but I keep hoping one day will be my day but today I was well and truly beaten. I wanted to catch on dries, it is May after all, but after much watching, waiting and generally making as little disturbance as possible there just wasn’t anything to cast at. Some flies coming off from around 2pm, Olives/upswings and sedges of different types along with a few big stoneflies but not enough to get the fish excited. Maybe next time...
