It’s been a fantastic Easter/May Bank Holiday break, albeit, the majority of which I’ve spent ‘working’. My regular ‘office’ has happily been replaced by that of the banks of the rivers Usk and Taff with guided trips and casting lessons, and yet I still have a few more fantastic lessons booked before my return to […]

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.
