My friend and I had never fished the Wye before. We arrived on Wednesday 27th to find the river a light tea tint and high but not raging. We were to fish Thursday to Saturday. Thursday morning we met Ian Boney in a torrential thunder storm to show us around the fishery, by this time the river was up and running chocolate brown. Fished beat 3 and 4 for the rest of the stormy day with little to show for it by way of fish in the net, even though we laced various swims with hemp and and pellets. The second day my friend Ian caught a personal best chub of 4lb.6oz trotting sweet corn in beat 4. On our last day we fished beat 2 and I had 10 chub to 4lb.8oz, all caught long trotting, 9 took luncheon meat and one took bread. Stunningly beautiful river and surroundings with swims in places where there would normally be shingle, grass and willows. Many thanks to Ian Boney for his guidance.

Thank you Ian for meeting us on Sunday 24 June. Due to the heavy rain the night before, the river was very high but we found a slacker area on the gravel bank on beat 5 and managed 2 chub between us.
On Monday the level had gone down a fair bit, but it was still not easy. We fished the same place and had 1 barbel (5lb 12oz) and 6 chub up to 5lb between us. It was a glorious day on the Monday and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
All fish except one chub were caught on Halibut pellet. I tried corn and meat with little success (1 chub on meat).
I would love another trip to the Wye in more favourable conditions.
Once again, many thank.

The river was dropping after deluge previous week and water colour was good. Bright sun and little cloud did not bode well and so it proved. Sport was restricted to small brown trout & odd coarse fish, on fly/spinner, generally sections 3 to 5. Nothing could tempt the bigger fish evident from the occasional big rise to surface food(?). A salmon was seen going up river at end of section 5 under trees on opposite bank. Frank caught some nice Shad on spinner, one about 2lb, all returned to river safely. Our thanks to Ian who was very helpful on our first visit to the Wye - we shall return.

Tuesday 19th June, the river had dropped significantly in the past 48 hours and had returned to its normal colour. However, fishing was very slow, with nothing caught until mid afternoon. 3 chub to myself on small cubes of luncheon meat & feeder, 4 to Tim on similar tactic. These came from section 3, end of island and under the trees at the top of the section. Thanks to Ian who was very helpful and was on time to open up the access gate to the fishery.

The river was dropping from about 6 foot plus over summer levels and still quite coloured, est 18 inches visibility in the water. Fished a calmer pool on beat 5, just after the bend, and caught 1 chub about 4 lb. Moved down river to beat 1 Lower and caught 2 chub close in by the near bank. Again about 4lb. All fish caught on a 1 inch square size luncheon meat. Also fished near the bank on beat 2 with no fish. River running very fast in this area.

River very high and coloured was too much of a challenge for us. We tried for a few hours in the morning but no good so packed up. Hats off to the rods on other beats who stuck it out and caught fish. The beat itself is great and Ian, who manages it, is very helpful. The bird and nature watching was a great compensation. Got very close to a pair of otters, I could of poked them on the nose with the end of my rod, and lots of interesting birds - Skylarks, Redstarts, Gooseanders, Sandpipers, Reed Bunting amongst others. Bill Oddie eat your heart out.

Beat 5. River at an ideal height and clear, rose perhaps 2" during the day. Fished through beautifully- even Locksters pool could be covered with the fly. Plenty of trout activity on Yellow Mays and the odd Mayfly. 2 fish showed. One draw on the reel but nothing on the lift (how do they do that?). 4 wbt and 2 Shad. A fantastic days fishing but-no Salmon!

Got to the river early to have an introduction to it and found it unfishable. Chatted to the guys in the office later and offered me a wash-off if things didn't improve by lunchtime. Soldiered on became fishable around late afternoon but could only attempt wild browns. 3 returned around the 1.5lbs mark. Other rod looked at the water and went home!
