    I don’t have the knowledge that Barby and sewinbasher have on the Wye but I did learn a lot from the late Cliff Lloyd, one of the things was how to fish the shrimp, that method bought a few to the gaff when all else failed.He also showed me a shed full of nets that he and his team had removed from the river, that was when poaching was rife.When his team worked on the hatchery at Glasbury it was streemlined and I think it was a great loss to the river that he wasn’t consulted on the efforts of the river trust when he retired.There is much mention of days lost to high water, I remember standing on the bank years ago in the spring hoping that the river would drop, it seemed to take a lot longer to recede back then that is does now whether that is due to debri and barrier removal or just demand for water. But one thing is for sure when it did recede the fish were there, it was not uncommon to catch four or more from the same pool.

    Hi jymny, I think if your fishing trip to the Builth area is timed for late July you will need to hope the river rises and coloures up a bit. Otherwise you may need to revert to those little crustaceans (if only) while employing all that experience learned. Anyway, hope all works out for you in July. Let us know how you get on, I expect four or more.

    Barby you are confused with me and indigo who trades at the Royal Welsh he is the one who is going to fish up river when he comes up in July. I know you are getting on a bit and I forgive you.

    Very sorry jymny, but no harm done I hope. Yes, I am getting on fine thanks but obviously still some way to go to achieve absolute perfection.

    Would you like me to delete that irrelevant post?
