    Default Taff winter

    One mile. One river. One season. Filmed in December, January and February on my home stretch of the Taff, this is the final video in my quartet of Taff Seasons. Join me for the scenery, wildlife and fishing on this iconic river in winter. Thanks for watching.

    Thanks for putting that together and sharing Nick.
    I think you must spend more time filming and editing than fishing!

    Glad you liked it. I enjoy filming and fishing equally, so I don't really mind which I'm doing. About half of Taff Winter was shot while fishing; more so on days when the fishing was slow or the river wasn't in condition, or days when the light was good. Some days when I'm fishing I won't film at all, other than maybe a fish release sequence, on other days I'll clip the camera to trees and collect some walking sequences. Since the river was up and down over the winter a lot of the nature and scenic shots were done on non fishing days on a 5D Mk IV instead of the waterproof camera I use when fishing. The river is only 5 minutes away so it's easy to pop down with the SLR, a lens and a tripod and collect some sequences. Editing is done when its raining and the river is coloured, so I'm not wasting fishing time. All in all I'm just as happy wandering the bank with a rod or a camera. Cheers, Nick.

    Northern suburbs of Cardiff, the mile of the river around Radyr. Day tickets from Garry Evans' shop on Whitchurch road, Cardiff. Cheers, Nick.

    Thanks for the information. I've only fished the Taff once and the one thing that stuck in my mind was that it was extremely difficult for the visiting angler to find the access points to the river. So, is there a map of the stretch by any chance?

    No maps that I'm aware of I'm afraid. It can be a bit of a jungle in parts, particularly in summer, but worth the effort of finding the access paths. There are parts on the lower Taff around Sophia Gardens and Bute Park where the banks are more open and the paths more defined.
