    Welsh Llyn’s advice

    Glad you had a good time. As you may have seen on the Trout and Grayling forum. I was up there the other week and fished pen-y-Garreg which is next one down not so good. We've tried to use the bothy in the past but there was someone in it. So we just go to the campsite at the bottom of the complex

    He's Fallen in the Water,( High pitched Squeaky voice)

    It was a cold July day 3 years ago and it was cold. I was fishing up at the Teifi pools when I slipped on a rock and fell about 2' in to the lake. I landed on my right knee in 6'' of water. Once my so called friend had stop laughing he came and gave me a hand out. Now we were both advanced...

    Have you had a look at these I've used one that was given to me for just over a year now. Casts well no coils and floats high. In fact I was that impressed I've bought another one for my boat fishing. At £25 pounds not to pricey.

    Social Distancing

    My Club rules are that if you turn up and someone else is already fishing you have to drop in below them. If I turn up and someone is fishing I'll walk along to see if I can find them for a chat. Then go back and start fishing if they are good way up the beat. But if they have not been long...

Fished for a...

    Difference between a fisherman and a good fisherman

    Time spent on the water or by a river observing. Time spent fishing getting tangled and stuck in trees and learning from your mistakes. The more time you spend doing anything you should get better 😊 Oh by the way I'm not a good fisherman just a happy thrasher
