Harsh Conditions on the River Usk, But Still We Catch!

Friday saw a great guided trip on the River Usk for Simon and Peter from Gloucestershire. Both were looking to brush up on their river fishing skills and, despite the harsh conditions throughout the day, battled on and each managed fish. River levels are worryingly low at the moment, so the fact that both Simon and Peter caught fish was testament to their hard work and commitment.

A huge well done guys, and I’m so pleased you had a great time!

Low waters mean sneaky wading…creep like your burgling a house!

Not the biggest, but when the fishing is tough, a fish is a fish!
