About Me


Hi I'm Phil and welcome to Phils Fishing Diary

I have been Fly Fishing for over 30yrs. My first fish caught on a fly rod at the age of seven somewhere on a river in Wales under the guidance of my Dad my Fishing Buddy.

I am a fly fishing nut and enjoy all aspects of the sport.  My passion is fishing the Rivers especially after 'The Lady of the Stream' The Grayling.
I am also a member of C.A.D.A.C - Corwen and District Angling Club which has many miles of the Welsh Dee, as well as being a member of  Caersws Angling Association which has several miles of the Upper river Severn. I offer guiding services on both these rivers.

I have put this Diary or fishing log together to keep alive some of the memories and  to share tactics with fellow anglers.  It has already opened up many new friendships with fellow fishing bloggers and long may it continue.

I hope you enjoy my Diary and thank you for visiting.
