MTAA September 24th, 2011
The river fished well last week after the sudden burst of rain, with many anglers recording good catches of trout. With the heavy rain we have had over the weekend we should get some good sport between now and the end of the trout season on 30th September. It also augers well for the salmon fishermen on the Usk, as high water, means that the salmon will be running the river to spawn. Please return any red salmon, or if you have been lucky enough to already have one for the table please return your catches to protect future stock.
The Welsh federation of Coarse Anglers are running their southern trial at White Springs Fishery Pontadawe on the old canal on Sunday 9th October at 0845am. If you wish to participate you must be under 18. There will be bait restrictions no pellets, you will need a 13 metre pole and rigs, a waggler rod and floats and 1 kilo groundbait, 2 pints maggots or casters, 2 standard tins of sweet corn, 1 tin of hemp and 0.5 kilo of worm. For further information see the WFCA09 web site.
With the end of the trout season looming, it is time to stock up our fly boxes once again. To this end Gavin Jehu will be running fly tying classes in the Ex-Servicemans club, if you have never tied a fly please come along you will be welcome and if you have tied flies in the past and wish to expand upon your skill please come and enjoy the banter.
