After the disappointment of a cancelled holiday and a chance to go fly fishing in Sydney Harbour I ended the year on one of my favorite rivers, Snow melt was evident and the river was running high, but I still managed to winkle out the odd Grayling fishing Czech style with the heavy tungsten. A great way to end the year one of which had seen few fishing outings due to my commitment on becoming a Fly Fishing Instructor and this was achieved in November at Caer Beris.
All the Very best for 2011 to all of my fishing friends and diary readers !!.
So onto 2011 and what a year we have in store, I am really looking forward to getting out and fishing on my beloved Welsh rivers and beyond.
