    Default Re: Fishing Monnow on holiday

    Did a walk past the castle section .... everyone was out coarse fishing which next time I'll try. I decided to buy the WUF ticket for the Monmow Valley section. Stunning section with good well marked access in a few places, although it's steep and wild. Some deep glidey bits but loads of broken water and riffles. Fished beginning and end of the day and caught two trout in the morning and one in the evening, all on the nymph as the rise was negligent.

    But mostly I was happy with the view of the river.

    Monnow Valley is part of the Rockfield Studios set up and is infamous for being the scene of a swan "attack" on Ossie Osbourne who was just dissuaded from going back to settle the matter with a 12 bore!!
    “There is no more lovely country than Monmouthshire in early spring. Nowhere do the larks sing quite so passionately, as if somehow inspired by the Welsh themselves. There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.”
