A really lovely beat. Arrived just after lunch and fished up from bottom of beat to Titley bridge to begin with. Caught 3 with weighted PT and hares ear nymphs and lost another. Occasional rises seen. A few mayfly about. Then fished upstream from Titley Bridge and caught a really nice 12 inch fish on a hares ear nymph. Could hear a JCB working at the end of fist field and water suddenly coloured, with debri floating down. It was clearing fallen tree debri from river. This meant river only fishable upstream of it. Fortunately it stopped at 5pm so river cleared. Tried the lower section again and at 8pm they started to rise. 5 more on dry mayflies, the biggest being about 14 inches, all from long, straight, deepish run alongside the cottage garden. Great sport! Was broken by an even bigger fish as I tried to stop it getting into the bankside tree roots. Will definitely be back.

Beat: Cannop Brook (Wild Stream), Fishing Type: Trout, No. Anglers: 1

With hot sunny weather and the brook running clear, any open, thin water was going to prove troublesome.

Fishing in the shadows, broken water and the 'hard to get at places' was order of the day. 14 trout between 4 and 9 inches.

16lb hen fish caught by Geraldine Gaffney at 12.15 from top croy at the hut on an orange FC. Excellent condition. Returned safely. This was Geraldine's first Wye salmon!

River in good order. Very little canoe traffic but plenty of spectators above the footbridge!

I'm mainly a small stream fisherman and these big Welsh rivers are bit baffling, frankly. I've fished the Teifi a few times whilst on holiday and had a (very) few, always on a nymph.

Firstly there's the wading. It's either slabbed pavements, with unnerving, sudden drop-offs into deep channels or slippery boulders to clamber over. Secondly, there's the water. You undoubtedly get a lot of it but an awful lot seems to be shallow runs over bare rocks, devoid of fish.

I was fishing the lower section on a bright, sunny, warm day so I don't suppose that helped. Plenty of insects about but no fish seen and no rise forms either. I fished various dry flies but I really didn't know whether I was wasting my time or not. Generally, if you don't know, you usually are so I gave up after an hour or so. I suspect you need to be trundling heavy nymphs along the bottom of those channels to catch anything.

Very picturesque river but I think you need a local guide to get the best out of it. No takes, no fish seen.

Really bright sunny day. Very few fish moving, fished hard all day and had a few slashing rises but only one take, a small black finned trout. Beautiful location.

Started at 6am below the bridge and landed a 7/8lb bright silver fish on a Cascade 15mm brass tube fished on a sink tip Skagit line. Although this is my first fish this season it was a bit of an anticlimax as I lost a much bigger one Wednesday and keep thinking what might have been. Dedication to the needs of the angling public took me to work at 10am.

Just a few hours last minute fishing because the opportunity presented itself. Tried combination of Spinning, (Flying C) and Fly, (various) to no avail. Several big rises on the far bank by Wood Cribb!

1 fish caught and returned - about 1/2 pound. Caught on a olive emerger. Fantastic location - even if the fishing was hard work that day.
