Ice Cold In Powys- Sunday 29th November 2011

Record temperatures hit the country over the weekend and mid Wales was no exception :-

"Mid Wales recorded the lowest temperatures in the UK on Saturday night as bitter cold continued to bite.
Llysdinam in Powys saw -17.3C (0.86F), which is both the lowest ever recorded in Wales in November, and the lowest in the UK during the month since 1985." - BBC News

My trip into mid Wales saw the temperature gauge hit -15 on arrival, I must be crazy or just a fishing junky?.  It certainly didn't get much warmer throughout the day at best reaching -9 at its peak.  The heavy metal was out in force and proved to be a success accounting for about half a dozen or so fighting fit Grayling.  Constant attention to the rod rings was the order of the day literally freezing within minutes.

A spectacular place to be on such an extraordinary cold day, but well worth it.  Hope you enjoy some of the pictures of the day.
