Is that the New Bridge over the Smestow Brook or the pub?

I was looking down on the the Severn estuary today from Cefn Eglwysilan a high point of the Mynydd Eglwysilan near Ponty and very bracing it was too, zero degrees and stinging showers of graupel. The estuary, fairly arbitrarily, becomes the Bristol Channel at the line drawn between Lavernock Point to the south of Cardiff and Sand Point which is to the north of Weston-super-Mare.

I fished it near Caersws very briefly this summer - I blanked - it was strange to think that the river which you could spit across at that point eventually becomes so wide at my destination, Cardiff. The islands, Flat Holm and Steep Holm are just outside the estuary.

This thread is relevant to my interests.


However the bits of the Severn near me at Ironbridge and Shrewsbury have 'Widow Maker' written all-over them. Deep waters and steep banks.

It won't be of much interest to fly anglers but I'm hearing fantastic catch reports from recent river matches through Shrewsbury town centre, dace and roach mainly, but a great return to form by all accounts, some proper old school river match fishing (well not really as Bolo seems to be the method, but you now what I mean!)
