The Welsh Rivers are probably about perfect for fly fishing at the moment, however with travel restrictions and lockdown it's going to be a while before I can make it across the border to fish the Usk or Taff.

As per title, basically a Fishpond copy. Bought for a friend who lives abroad for a trip to USA which was cancelled and is on hold for this year.
It's the Maxcatch top of the range model which sells on ebay for £67
As per description, never worn felt soles with Orvis Tungsten studs. The Orvis size is size 9 therefore the UK size is a 8. Reason for selling is because I bought a different brand with interchangeable rubber and felt soles for a trip abroad. £90 delivered.

Tied on a size 12 Partridge Dry Fly, Whiting High and Dry March Brown Grizzle main hackle, Partridge hackle, Troutline Mad Rabbit dubbing and CDL tail.

Like anything else when you get a puppy they are always up to mischief. Photo snapped by my daughter when my wife was tidying up, quick as a flash the dog had grabbed the magazine and was off.
The look says it all and captures the moment beautifully :ROFLMAO:
