A warm day when I parked up by the white cottage Bridge pull in at ten ....already 17 degrees by then .... Brian P. had done well yesterday, with tenkara, so thought why not give the little Duhonw a bash just with tiny dries, old school style, see how she fairs !!!
Actually the walk down right to the bottom of the beat is superb, its been ages since I've been right down there ... Last time I was here the owners of the cottage had reported ,or tried to report a milky substance in the river !!!
Anyway ...the pool heads were fun, and casting literally on a six pence ro get a response .... fantastic fun with the six foot one weight ..... like grease lightening here !!! Beautiful little fish , but boy you gotta work for them, both on the wading front and presenting your dry ....A Wickhams and a Para Greenwells did the biz for me during a five hour slow wade .... i got out by the culvert bridge and a slow bimble back down the fields from there ....So really only half the beat done I think !!!
Eleven fish to my net, some really chunky strong eleven inch fish too, but most between five snd seven inches ...Just total fun on a tiny dry !!! A few more self released brownies made the session very entertaining and I must say lots of insect life down in the gorge, including mayfly!! Unusual on such a Rocky fast flowing stream ... mind you, higher up there's some silty areas I guess .....
The fish are stunning here, similar to the Clettwr specimens..... I must admit a big thanks to Brian P . For doing some very handy cutting back of over hanging foliage etc etc etc ...... I've started taking just my secateurs in its pouch to the Edw, and done some light clipping on the Hergest beat .... more needed ... I suggest to folks to do a little bit each time they go, doesn't hurt, and aids others in the future ..... some cracking pools opened up properly thanks to Brian ......
A lovely five hours on this classic mountain babbling brook......Fish are fast as a bullet here, but soooooooooo much fun !!! Another beat tommoz, then I'm guiding some chappies out in the Elan Valley wednesday and Thursday... hope its a bit more overcast by then!!! We shall see ..... onwards and upwards!!!

Had planned to fish Cregrina but arrived around 10 to find the Edw very coloured after yesterday's thunderstorm.
Moved on the Duhonw and found it clear and quite low.
Headed to the bottom end through the woods as hadn't been down there before.
Steep gradient and small pools and gutters and slippery underfoot.
Fished Tenkara and probably missed more of the lightning takes than I hit.

The river was high but clear. In places the fallen trees were stacked high and it looked more like an SAS training course than a river. My first visit to the Duhonw and I took it slowly, so I didn't reach the more gorge section.
Lovely river.
Kingfisher and dipper seen.
7 trout, all to nymphs

Very tricky wild beat. The water level was very low and unfortunately the bridge in Duhonw is out completely for 6 weeks, so instead of a 5 minute trip the other end of of the beat, its a 40 min car journey. Frustrating.

Stopped off at the Edw, which looked a little too high and coloured after a heavy shower, and went on to the Duhonw, which was clear but running at quite a pace. Fished up between the two road bridges with nymphs which produced a couple of small brownies and a salmon parr.

Well felt pretty energetic so mooched off to the Duhonw today , arrived at half nine , looked a bit low , but water still pushing through whilst looking over the bridge at the parking area . . . Had a quick chat with the lady in the garden of the cottage , new owners , she seemed very pleasant . . .

Bimbled Down to the rough start of the beat , strewth the water is clear , and could see some small skittish fish pinballing around smaller pools , thinking this was going to be a tough one . But sometimes tough is good , keeps you on your toes , which hones ones skills . . . . . . Mmmmmmm !!!!!

Anyway , casting into the fast water of the pools nothing initially , and four good pools dealt with , with care and attention , not a sniff !!! Sized down my Parachute Adams , and the glides seemed to show more interest , saw a splashy rise about half ten , my progress this morning was ever so slow , wading like Neil Armstrong on the moon !!!! First fish , was a beauty , good rise on the Adams , and a fish of about nine inches happy days , always nice to bring the first one to hand !!!

The second glide , again , prospecting the dry , and bang , another nice little fish , perhaps seven inches , third and fourth , similar locations , till a couple of hours later , then the trout were taking splashy hits at the pool heads . The size of the fish was only about five or six inches , but caught fair and square on the dry !!!! And lots missed today it seemed , lightening quick the small brownies , so I did pretty well really , with seven brought to hand .

Ventured about hundred yards up passed second bridge , where it turns into another version of the Clettwr . Good fun , and the last fish was from the smallest pool up there , feisty little chap , about six inches , hammered the Para Adams , great fun . I would say it's really in desperate need of two or three good days rain now , like wise I'm sure the Edw is looking a bit tired as well , hopefully this week may fatten up these wild streams , we shall see , a fun five hours in the Duhonw valley , back when it's flowing a bit more healthy . . . . . . . . Spot on !!!!!!!!

The river was a good height but running crystal clear after the mid week deluge.
8 trout 4 to 8 inches all caught on a copper beaded nymph fished duo.
A few olives hatching after 1 when the sun was out and the temperature rose a few degrees.
