    Got wadered up and went down the Taff yesterday lunch time, it was chocko. Stewed going back up the hill to the truck, lost cause. No idea it had rained so much, should have looked first.

    Only had a 3 wt on me but I've fished falling spates like that and had a few big brown trout while after sewin with one of Ian Finylas's Spate Busters.

    I tried fishing below Blackweir yesterday evening and deemed it too difficult to wade and gave up after losing some flies. I was indeed using a small nymph with an orange butt and a pink squirmy.
    I did cycle up to Quakers Yard today and was impressed. I fished a bit lazily and played around 4 trout before losing them, and landed another. One of the lost ones was a monster and I had him on my nymph for maybe 15 minutes before he popped off, its hard to control big fish with a Tenkara rod in fast waters. Quite impressed with MTA waters for my few trips up there.
    I shall be fishing around Cardiff/Llandaff/Radyr tomorrow taking in the sunshine.

    had 3 trout and a grayling yesterday in Llandaff section in the morning, one of them was a nice 2pounder, which I seldom find in the lower reaches of the Taff. Although I didnít fish in the evening, I did pass by the river and there was a stupid amount of fly activity! Exciting to see how the season picks up.
    Went up to radyr this morning and not a bite! Found a few poachers too and nobody had caught anything. Water is really clear and the predatory birds are out. Hopefully this evening is better with a bit of fly life.

    Update:

    River is fishing well! Yesterday I had 6 trout and a grayling near Llandaff, using heavy nymphs for faster waters where fish aren't rising, or a white wulff dry, all on a Tenkara rod. Photographed are the best 4 of them!
