River Taff is fishing well after recent high water. Ceri Thomas of Fishtec fished last night into darkness in the Troedyrhiw area and had 10 brown trout all on a yellow klinkhammer dry fly. Most fish were cracking specimens of between 14 and 17 inches in length, with a few smaller fish showing as well. Tal-y-bont is still fishing well in late evenings or over cast wet days. Istavan Bognar has a Tal-y-bont specimen of nearly 2.5lb on a black and green goldhead recently. Cantref is also fishing well – Rhys Davies has been catching lots of browns of about half a pound – a good sign for the future.

Dave Couzins and John Coombs fished the Brecon canal at Pencelli on Monday Morning and Dave landed 7lbs 8oz of Roach, Perch, Dace and Gudgeon and John landed 6lbs of Roach, Perch, Dace and Gudgeon a really good day in the rain.
I can confirm that the canal at Brecon is in tremendous form. myself and Barry Carter fished appx 100yds down from wooden sculpure and had a lot of roach up to a 1lb Dace in excess of 8oz, 4 eels plus some small chub, i would estimate between us we would have had 30-40lb of fish. not bad for a canal. Fished red maggot over hemp and bread punch as a switch bait, the bigger roach came to a bunch of red maggot over hemp after feeding for 2+ hrs.
Bernie Farr and his wife Janice went over to Pencelli to fish the canal. They started catching Roach, then they stated catching Dace, and then in the afternoon they were catching small chub. Bernie and Janice have fished the canal for many years, but last Friday was the best day they have ever had, the fishing was absolutely tremendous.
Dia Davies fished peg 28 and caught 4 bream and a 7lb carp, all the bream had spawning nodules on. Fishing next to Dia was Robert Burke who also landed 4 bream and a lot of roach.
