Default The (new) River Wye 2017 thread.

The Editor-in-Chief, Paul, said:
"It's a shame this thread has denigrated into a slanging match and therefore it's time to close it.

Someone please feel free to start a fresh Wye 2017 thread but let's keep it to talking about the fishing please."

I'm delighted to restart the thread. Let's keep it polite chaps, please.

River is dropping and no substantial rain on the horizon. Any guesses where the first fish will come from? Ross? Courtfield? Ingestone? Lower maybe?

I think this years fin-clipped fish will be of the multi sea winter variety, may enter the river in the spring, and therefore hang around their rearing pond location (especially below Monmouth) for perhaps 8 months. I wonder if anglers should be especially vigilant this year, to ensure every fin-clipped re-catch, is not recorded more than once, twice, thrice, or perhaps even four times.

Barby - let's keep it to talking about the fishing please.

Why don't you delete your deliberately contentious post and tell us how and where you will be fishing in March.

My post is a current matter of fact affecting the most important ingredient, the fish. Yours is only a sudden change in tone that won't last long will it.

Lets all be a little more vigilant in checking for fin clips, I know I have forgotten on occasion.
