Wonderful evening (1730-2100h) fishing on the Taf Fawr above Pont-y-Cafnau on Merthyr Angling Association water. Access not that easy (take small path going upstream on left bank and there is a smaller path steeply cutting down the amazing sloping rock buttress). With lowish water levels all pools were wadable or turnable with care. A 7 foot rod is ample for side casting under overhanging trees which shaded the river well on a sunny evening. There were a few fish rising; took a 9" BT with a red spinner and pricked a couple more. In faster water a Copper Head PT nymph accounted for a 10" BT. Left the river at the footbridge and skirted back on the metalled footpath back to Pont-y-Cafnau.

The water at Abercanaid, was clear and low. On a bright day with a rather sparse hatch, nothing was rising, requiring a switch to sub surface. I am a Halfordian but needs must !
Two fish was a disappointment but the river looked great and it was an enjoyable day.

First time on the Taff and some lovely water to go at. The only disappointment was the hideous amount of rubbish littering the banks and bed. It is such a crying shame that with the heavy industry now gone and water quality restored that there is still so much human derived waste blighting what should be an absolute jewel. Fishing was very tough and we couldn't really blame the conditions but low pressure, a little flush through and some cloud would have helped. I would have thought a fish or two could have been intercepted on a speculative nymph but no such luck. A very sparse hatch of olives at mid day was insufficient to drag any fish to the surface, other than one lone individual which rose three times, the last time to my C fly but I conspired not to disturb it with my hook! I will be back.
