    Thanks for the advice! We had a great day with 20 fish to the boat... Mainly avoided sailing club as most boats were there... Hit liads of fish at Hafod Lom as well as tower bay. Fish were around 2ft down

    Venues for next week - advice appreciated

    Afternoon all, I was meant to be fishing for salmon in Northumberland next week. Unfortunately, the rivers are drier than a camel's armpit. I've booked the week off work so will look to go elsewhere. Can anyone recommend some venues within a couple of hours of North Wales? Ideally I'm looking...
