Fished with spider patterns and nymphs and gave it an honest go but unfortunately no fish would take the flies. It was however a nice afternoon on the river.

An enlightening trip, had more time than previous outings, and so was able to explore the river a little more. No fish caught but lost one and missed a few others due to inexperience and poor knot tying.

Pleasant short session on the river. Lots of fly activity. Although struggled to find rising fish.

A couple of hours fishing for two novice anglers. Fished dry fly method. No fish caught, but surface splashes at least gave confidence that there were fish present. A good learning exercise, and we will endeavour to try again.

Only fished for a couple of hours. Very low clear water and no visible fish movement although some signs of hatches of olives and sedges. No fish caught
All fishing by French nymph on a long rod with two nymphs. This technique was successful the previous day in similar conditions on the river Ebbw.

River was very low. Managed 3 trout (I think stocked) on a JW Nymph. Very tricky, couldn't temp anything with a dry. Reports of a dead salmon found on the beat last week. Will be back!

Couple of average hill stream trout. I was there taking photos of others fishing so my return is not really representative of the fishing. The others did better - or as well as three people fishing together on a small stream can expect.

Fished the Taff Fachan down from Pontsarn bridge to the town; a beautiful little stream that cuts through a deep rocky gorge in the woods. There was still the odd mayfly hatching but the little fish that I did see, seemed to be feeding on midges and a late hatch of iron blue duns. I caught a couple of tiddlers, then spotted the only bigger fish I saw all day and managed to tempt it first cast. It was only about half a pound but it made my day. All fish caught on a size 16 F fly.

Over all the fishing was difficult in clear water at Quakers yard. Two fish of over 8" fell to a small olive klick and one fish and plenty of missed pulls on size 12 pheasant tail nymph, fished downstream with no success when casting upstream. Weither my casting was poor or the fish were line shy. All day hatch of small sulphurs. Over all a lovely day on a lovely river.
