Report By Ceri Thomas of Fishtec – 10/4/16

Spent a few hours on the Aberfan stretch of the Taff. Arrived at 1.00pm hoping to find hatch of LDO, MB’s and therefore rising fish. Airflo streamtec rod was rigged up with size 12 parachute Adams, my ‘go to’ dry for this time of year. Walked the banks looking for risers – and found some. Landed 6 nice fish, with each one spotted and targeted carefully with the dry. All in mint condition, each one in the 14 – 16 inch range and very strong. Missed, pricked and lost many more. Hatch and rise over by 3.00pm. Could have caught more by fishing nymphs blind, but what fun is that compared to a take off the surface!
