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.
