    Monnow Social 2013 - The fun starts here.

    As always, a great weekend, even if the fishing wasn't on fire. Thanks to Jason for being such an excellent companion (call me in June and we'll do it justice) The Kitchen *****es once again performed over and above the call of duty and, lets not forget gentlemen, we would all starve without...

    I don't much like the idea of you pulling in you're dreams :omg:

    Fishing the Monnow

    The Lower Escley is in perfect nick, though the fishing today was sporadic at best. Nothing rising but a speculative cast in the right place could bring one up from the depths. Plenty of spinners around but very little on the water.

    Good call Dave. Had 3 hours on the upper Longtown beat this afternoon - huge fun. 8 fish to hand and more than a dozen missed/lost. Best a shade over 12 inches which was huge fun on the 6'6" boo 3 weight in the strongish current. I spent a lot of time watching and waiting which paid...

    Monday was a disappointment. Cold mist 'til about 2 and no sign of life on the water.

    The supreme fishing wagon

    Due to the fact that I have bought a newer, larger camper van I am offering my much loved Mazda Bongo for sale. This Bongo was imported from Japan about 3 years ago and has been owned by me ever since. Originally a 'tin top' it has been professionally converted to a camper van by JAL of...

    Fishing the Monnow

    Dave, The fact fish rose to your dry would suggest that they were 'looking up' so I doubt that dredging the depths with a nymph would have brought more success. You could always try the duo with a small ptn, ghre or copper john on an 18" length of tippet tied to the bend of the dry's hook...
