Welcome to my world of fishing.......
Welcome to my website which is dedicated to the pleasurable sport of flyfishing and the Wye and Usk river catchments, in particular. I do hope that you will find something that stimulates your interest or provides the answers to what you are seeking.
The website was conceived as a knowledgebase and is still maintained with this concept in mind, however in more recent times the flycasting section has been transferred to my blog site, which can be found at www.fly-fish-guide.net/blog where I put up new posts every week, to promote a clearer understanding of the theory of casting. If your interest is in-depth casting mechanics then this is the place to go to.
Inside the pages of this website you will find boundary maps for all of the salmon fisheries on the Wye, from the Estuary all the way up to Llanwrthwl Bridge and as far as I know this information is unique and as up-to-date as it gets. I have been fortunate enough to fish (and guide) for trout, grayling and salmon at most of these fisheries, except those where fly fishing is not practical. If you want to locate a fishery or a famous pool on the river Wye, then this is where you will find it.
Also I have been the very fortunate recipient of many interesting contributions, in the form of anecdotes and historic pictures, from people who have associations either with salmon fishing or the River Wye. In essence this is what the website is all about and I would be very happy to receive material from anyone, relating to the rivers Usk and Wye, which would be of general interest to fly fishermen or the local community.
