    Thanks for pointing that out edd.

    Tried for a salmon upstream of the Glam stretch on Thursday. The river rose a foot in two hours. Ever conscious of the likelihood of a wheelie bin to be flying downstream ( a local phenomenon ) and with the water approaching the speed of light I packed up early.

    This is starting to look quite interesting, I have seen quite a few fishing Blackweir and above, this may be the solution for me,grayling and whatever else until the season starts again next year.

    One question, is it fishable over the winter with all that rain water floooding down to the Bay?

    Its a bit ironic that I used to live within walking distance of the Taff and could only tempt eels out of its black waters, now it is clean, I live in Carmarthen and intend to revisit its waters.

    Such is life!

    i walked down the taff this morning - around bute park, and in a 10 min walk i must have seen over 300 plastic bottles floating down, enough planks of wood to build a good sized house, at least a dozen footballs and 5 car tyres - quite a collection

    Or are they the remains of long gone rafts from the "Taff-Tiki" raft races, I did one once during my "studies" anyone remember them??

    I won the Taff Tiki in 1969!! Those were the days when if you fell in the Taff you went straight to A&E.

    I remember the Taff Tiki races, great fun but abandoned due to a competitor contracting Weil's disease, what a delightful river it is! There was an anthrax outbreak earlier in the year just above Taffs Well...........Naturally it all heads into the all singing, all dancing Cardiff Bay lagoon which hides that nasty mud which used to make up the estuary bed, much loved by the wading birds , now long gone,but that's progress.

    Despite all the **** the river still fishes well for non migratory fish right through the year and the grayling fishing is worth the drive up from Carmarthen,and probably quicker (though less picturesque) than the drive to Caersws.



    Above, the Taff with The Garth in the backgound, lovely, but turn 180 degrees from this spot and the view couldn't be more of a contrast. The Taff valley has been ruined by the cheapest and nastiest developments. As Charles, Prince of Wales might say, it really is appalling - but then he doesn't fish the Taff much!

    And their ticket also allows you to fish a couple of stretches of the Wye and a short stretch of the Usk at Chainbridge.

    Glam also own a good stretch of the Ely, an under rated gem. Features occasional fish kills courtesy of none other than the Royal Mint itself, a quality polluter.

    Some lost grayling turning up (not belly up) there now via the Bay lagoon.
