Went to for a walk up the Grywne today to check for redds and came across some canoeists coming downriver. Their canoes could clearly be heard scraping across the stream bed - and these people call themselves environmentalists?

Many thanks to all concerned on the very enjoyable and informative if a little damp river walk yesterday.

On Illtyd Griffith's and Jonathan Morris's Spey casting course.....

"Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed the above course. Both Illtyd and Jonathan were first class, their relaxed style made even a wet sunday a joy. A good course that I will recommend to my friends, well done both."

On Illtyd Griffith's and Jonathan Morris's Spey casting course.....

"I have just returned from attending the 2 day Spey casting course arranged by Illtyd Griffiths on the Wye. Although it isn’t specifically organised by the Wye and Usk Foundation I thought you may appreciate some feedback.

In short it was superb. Both Illtyd and Jon are excellent and gifted instructors. They sorted out a number of issues I had been wrestling with all season and moved my personal skills along several notches. They greatly helped a pal of mine who had been working on his casting for the past couple of years and took two complete beginners to an impressive level of competence.

Normally, to get this sort of tuition would involve travelling to Scotland or Ireland and then it would probably be mixed up with actual fishing (possibly to the detriment of the casting instruction). To have this level of excellence relatively locally is a real find, and certainly a gem to be placed alongside the many other impressive achievements of the W and U Foundation."

Fishing the Sheephouse beat, in between Glasbury and Hay:
"Bright sun, little wind, a very nice beat: lovely - until early afternoon when two out-of-control canoes with children (part of a group of 6-7 from a PGL in Brecon) ran me over and carried me into deep water! Helped out by the supervisor; all very apologetic, but I get Very wet :-(
No fish seen, but occasional trout rises."

Thank you for the report on the ISAC project. It does indicate both the damage done to our uplands and the ability (with a lot of well planned hard work and finance) to mitigate some of these deleterious effects on our uplands streams.

I would like to thank you and the team for undertaking this work and hope that some of the lessons learnt can be applied to other catchments where desirable. It is such a pity that the authorities are so slow in both identifying problems and in trying to mitigate them at source!

Well done to all and keep up the good work!

Kindest regards.

I hope all is well with you stalwarts at the "W.U.F", and may I wish you a belated Happy New Year !

Gosh, when I received your beautifully presented "ISAC Report", my first reaction was, how much did that cost! I work in Publishing!

Upon reading the above and digesting the information herein, bloody-hell, it should be Gilt-Edged!

The work and results you have achieved have to be seen to be believed. Even the "Control Sites" showed significant improvement, as for the "I.I.", what can one say, apart from three massive cheers!!.

If you can think of a way I may be able to help, I'm a Sales and Marketing Dinosaur!

Please keep up the good work.

My regards.

On behalf of WSFOA I would also like to add my thanks and congratulations to your WUF team for a very impressive project that has been shown, by independent monitoring, to be highly effective. It gives those of us owners who keep subscribing to the River Improvement Fund the encouragement that it is money very well spent.

Best wishes.

Dear Dr Marsh-Smith and colleagues

I have just received a copy of the ‘ISAC – end of project report’, and was delighted to read it from cover to cover. The informative document highlights the project’s many achievements and I think the entire project team can be justly proud of its accomplishment. Restoration projects within the US could learn a great deal from the many aspects of this project, and I will be citing this as an excellent example of a successful, multi-faceted, and multi-stakeholder project.

Please convey my sincere congratulations to the entire project team, and support staff.

With best wishes

Dear Sir

I have today received the ISAC End Of Project Report (Jan 2014) which I have to say paints a wonderful picture of the progress being made to improve water quality, flow management and aquatic life in the Irfon catchment. As a 'long distance' supporter of the work of the Wye and Usk Foundation, I think your team deserves a 'pat on the back' for their efforts.

In that spirit I enclose a completed Gift Aid Donation Form and a cheque which I know that your organisation will put to good use together with any other funding that this may help generate.

Keep up the good work.

Kind regards.
