Down from the big smoke!

Yesterday saw me guiding father and son team Andrew and David who where spending a week in Crickhowell fishing the usk. Andrew has fished before on the usk but this was Davids first time.



This was going to be my second day in a row at and I expected good fishing, just like I had the day before with Susie. Lighter winds but stronger sunshine were the order of the day. and after a slow start David started to hook some fish. ‘Hook’ being the word because none of them came to the net. The first fish that he had on was a good one too (Tiggy said, “must try harder David”).

Throughout the day we used double speys and C-spey casts to get the best from the team of two spiders, and with my trusty wading staff there was no stopping David. Of the two, Andrew saw less fishy action but did enjoy the leaky waders he had on. It was nice to see such a good father/son relationship between the two of them, they seemed to be having a great week in sunny Wales and it would be great to see them again.

Nice rhythm by this point.

Thanks for the chocolate brownies Tiggy!
