    Monnow Social 2013 - The fun starts here.

    As always, a great weekend, even if the fishing wasn't on fire. Thanks to Jason for being such an excellent companion (call me in June and we'll do it justice) The Kitchen *****es once again performed over and above the call of duty and, lets not forget gentlemen, we would all starve without...

    I don't much like the idea of you pulling in you're dreams :omg:

    Fishing the Monnow

    The Lower Escley is in perfect nick, though the fishing today was sporadic at best. Nothing rising but a speculative cast in the right place could bring one up from the depths. Plenty of spinners around but very little on the water.

    Fishing the Monnow

    Good call Dave. Had 3 hours on the upper Longtown beat this afternoon - huge fun. 8 fish to hand and more than a dozen missed/lost. Best a shade over 12 inches which was huge fun on the 6'6" boo 3 weight in the strongish current. I spent a lot of time watching and waiting which paid...

    Monday was a disappointment. Cold mist 'til about 2 and no sign of life on the water.

    The supreme fishing wagon

    Due to the fact that I have bought a newer, larger camper van I am offering my much loved Mazda Bongo for sale. This Bongo was imported from Japan about 3 years ago and has been owned by me ever since. Originally a 'tin top' it has been professionally converted to a camper van by JAL of...

    Fishing the Monnow

    Dave, The fact fish rose to your dry would suggest that they were 'looking up' so I doubt that dredging the depths with a nymph would have brought more success. You could always try the duo with a small ptn, ghre or copper john on an 18" length of tippet tied to the bend of the dry's hook...

    Monnow Himalayan Balsam Bashing Weekend

    Possibly the last chance we have of hitting the Balsam hard this year as it's now coming into flower and, once it seeds it's too late. Yesterday was well attended with volunteers from the EA Wales, Keep Wales Tidy, the MRA and various fishermen attending. Our thanks for everybody’s support so...
