    There is plenty of water in all rivers, which will take a few days to settle to fishable conditions. The Honddu should fish tomorrow but will be pushing through. The Olchon, upper Monnow, Dore and Escley should be OK by Wednesday and the main river towards then of the week. Be patient and the rewards could be worth waiting for.

    The upper Monnow and tribs should now be in perfect order and the main river around Kentchurch is close to fishable and should be OK to good for the weekend. The bonus is that we are having warm days and very mild nights so hatches should be picking up. I would go fishing, if I was you!

    But you're not, so you won't?!!
    Trout fishermen revere the trout; trout, on the other hand, unaware of their sublime standing in man's world, revere nothing, including man, a creature they seem to view with special contempt. Nihilism is a rare trait in fish but trout are full of it. The old men liked that.

    Any signs of the 'March Browns'? I have some great flies ready for them from 'Innovative fly design' should they show tomorrow.

    Just how populous are true March Browns on the Monnow system?

    Will be on the Monnow on Monday. Forecast is dry (ish) and hopefully a few fish will forgive my clumsy new season rustiness. I intend to enjoy a lunchtime pint at the Bell and contemplate all that is good in the world.

    Impossible question to answer, especially of such a fickle fly, as you know!

    They are new to the Monnow so we are to get used to numbers and timings. My few experiences of MBs were 20 years ago on the Ithon; the river went from dead to electric for 15 minutes in a blizzard hatch. I have not seen that level of activity on the Monnow it is more of a trickle, sufficient to get them rising. We live in hope and will keep all informed.

    Skenfrith should be in good order by Monday clear but highish providing we don't get more rain.
