    North Wales Sea Trout Venue

    Thanks Andy, glad you enjoyed it. It really is a fantastic little river, however as with many rivers in Wales this year the runs looks a little late and hasn't really got into first gear yet. On the plus side out Tuesday night excursion on the Conwy still looks on. Yesterday's rain has put a...

    Would the EA bother with this?

    if it does the you can always give it some sympathetic chainsaw loving, but unless EA decide otherwise I'd let nature take its course.

    Would the EA bother with this?

    Agree with Colin, Mike. Unless it's causing a massive pain I'd leave it where it is. It will do more good there than chopped up on the bank. Crack willow - does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Foxon's also sell day/week tickets for the Conwy - Llanrwst Anglers' club. The Clwyd and Conwy are two very different rivers but both provide excellent sea trout fishing and one or the other should be fishable. If you drop me a PM when you're thinking of coming down I'll happily take you out for...

    Someone in the EA told me every time this happens baby Jesus cries.

    It wasn't to show evidence of the overall success of catch and release, it was to show evidence of mortality rate, specifically. I had credited you with the intelligence to work that out, apologies if I was wrong. If you have data to the contrary then present it Tom. The Dee study (along with...

    Similarly low mortality rates on returned radio tagged fish on the Dee, despite having the additional burden of the tagging procedure. https://fishdee.wordpress.com/2013/02/19/catch-release-impacts-on-the-river-dee/ I too would like to see the evidence of near 100% mortality rate on the Severn...

    Lightning!

    Your maths, or should I say the original author's maths are way out. Hint: what's 11% of 127? I would suggest the original total should have been 227, not 127. Cut & paste at your own risk. :D

    Lightning!

    Out sea trout fishing last night and occasionally you'd see a flash over in the distance from a storm that's over the horizon. My usual approach is, in the daytime if your hear thunder or see lightning it's close enough to cause concern. At night though the flashes carry so far I just crack on...

    F1 2016.

    Cracking Monaco GP! For those who've yet to see Danial Riccardo not smiling, watch the podium presentation. Lewis lucked out with Red Bull's pit stop clanger but awesome to get to get to the slicks window on wets, and even better to get to the end on the ultras. Top race!

    Be careful out there

    'Long range weather forecasts' - they're not worth the paper they're written on. Every year it's "UK set for sizzler, temperatures will soar above more exotic destinations such as the planet Mercury, or the surface of the Sun". A similar story for Winter "Arctic blast set to plunge UK into...

    I'm not arguing why it was rolled out SF. I thought I'd made it abundantly clear my post was a direct reply to Washington's point regarding their identification. To answer your points (and hopefully demonstrate what I thought was relatively straightforward). 1. Not proven. 2. Proven not to...

    Yes, that kind of thing. Personally I too would like to see some robust data that clearly demonstrates positive results in areas where significant time, effort and finances have been used to target previously identified bottlenecks. If nothing else it gives those who wish to follow a similar...

    Well, that's not quite what I meant, though you may have a point. Equally it's likely we would be seeing a situation developing that would be attributing the apparent increase in numbers coinciding almost perfectly with the introduction of the SNR fish. This isn't meant to stoke the embers of...

    Meanwhile, with individual bodies clamoring for the lead role, the devastation in our rivers continues unabated. Another one of our tributaries suffers another pollution incident, courtesy of Welsh Water and raw sewage. Shame NRW didn't think it important enough to even attend. As you say...

    Blue vs rainbow trout

    Eh? A blue trout isn't part brown trout. :confused: You can't get 'part' anything, it would either be a rainbow x brown trout hybrid (i.e. one of each as a parent) or just a rainbow trout or just a brown trout. Are you suggesting it's great aunt, twice removed by marriage had an illicit fling...
