First time on the Taff (near Merthyr Vale). If you can look past the ubiquitous littering, it is a pretty river and certainly looked 'trouty' yesterday. I was quite hopeful as the temperature had picked up from the previous day and there were plenty of olives about. However, in the 3 hours I was there I didn't see a rise . Tried my best with the duo as well but to no avail. Might be worth coming back here with a guide sometime, as I've heard such promising things about the Taff.

Fished upstream of Pontygwaith Bridge. Lovely weather, bright and warm with no wind. A few Large Dark Olives and March Brown's coming off when we arrived but the hatch very soon petered out, no fish rising. Despite the rubbish a lovely beat with plenty of very trouty water.

It was dead quiet for first 4 hours. I almost accepted the fact I was going to blank today. Then of out blue fish on! And it was a decent one :) After several runs up and done the river I landed and released this beauty safely. This made my day. I caught another one later on but it was on the small side. Method: spin. C&R

Fishing was hard that day. Fish either was not active or very picky. I reckon :) After several hours I managed to catch 3 trout around 25 cm. Method: spin. C & R

PS Sadly I have to report that Taff river after winter high water looks like a skip. I found there bicycles, mattresses, cables, microwaves, toys tons of bags. The list is endless as amount of rubbish there. It's very sad as fishing in the Valley can be very rewarding. I presume it's all beyond control of Merthyr Angling Association but I thought I mention this as a warning to more "nature conscious" anglers and/or anglers who are hoping not only catch beautiful trout but also to admire nature.

Caught 2 brown trout in pools south of Merthyr Tydfil, and hooked another that got away. I kept the he trout and returned the she trout, both in the 1-2 lb size range.
