Anglers' Feedback & Reports

Nothing rising but managed to connect with a few fish on the nymph. In the confluence pool of the Monnow and Escley a grayling around 16" took in the tail of the pool. It was egg laden so we treated her very carefully and slipped her back. Otherwise the fish in great condition. Lovely beat this, wish it was longer or bolted onto part of the old Upper Longtown beat.

Wet fly on floating line used - using a sedgehog / green peter wet fly. 2 Trout of 1lb and a small trout and grayling of 1lb taken in faster water at the back edge of runs before opening into slacker water.
4 Trout, 1 Grayling

I have fished here before and know it to be a productive beat. However the combination of bright sun, cold air and low water made the fishing challenging. I only spotted two rising fish on the main river. The first took an olive paradun but in my excitement I struck too soon. Not only did this put the first fish down, the second one stopped rising too. The Crai has some nice pools but would really come into its own after a flood.

A lovely days fishing back on the Usk at Glan Usk Estate.
Not much movement throughout the whole day. The odd fish rising but they could not be tempted by either a wet or dry. Small March Brown hatch started at lunchtime but no increase in activity.
3 small brown trout were caught, all under 1/2lb so all returned safe and sound.
I certainly will return later in the year to try once again.

First visit, and surprised by the varied character of the water with plenty of inviting spots. One small BT to a gb hares ear, which frankly was a bit crass, as something more subtle was called for, but couldn't be bothered to change when there was so much to explore and enjoy! A short rod is preferable, not so much for casting but for raising and retrieving.

Cold and wet morning but warmer later in the day. Lost one big fish on a sedge and 3 or 4 other smaller trout swirled at the fly without taking. Otherwise nothing on nymphs and Klinks. Little fly life seen. Lovely stretch of water and worth a visit later in the year.
