On the river Towy today.

 Well manged to get out today, and meet up with my old mate John Watkins. John and i go back a long way, we fished a lot on the Gower for Bass. long before the nets men started fishing for them, when there was no value on them. and every gully/ rock point & estuary had tons of bass and other fish swimming around them, John and myself were very lucky to be about then. to see such high stocks of fish about, that i feel sorry that anglers starting fishing now and in the last 10 years will never see. it was nothing them days to have between 30 to 60 sewin in a nights fishing, and have many salmon as well. and the bass fishing was out of this world, and it was nothing to be in your boat. and see shoals of the five mile long and as wide off the Worms head or shoals off the shore. its very sad the way its gone, and from what i see no one can do any thing to stop the murder of the fish. well better stop this now feeling very sad about,
 Above John, coming down behind me on the Towy. weather was spot on nice and cloudy but a strong wind was blowing.
 Above, John down past me, at the end of the pool. as he went though as i was changing flies,
 Above, my fly box.
 Above a closer look, you can see the small shrimp on the rod, tied on a size 10 treble.
 Was a lot of damage on the banks this year, after all the rain this summer.
 I changed from the treble, to a bottle tube. as i as wading down and the pool was deeper,
 Its amazing, how much movement you can get out of bucktail.a fish did take this one, but came adrift after a few seconds.have to say the river has not fished like it does, i put it down to the unsettled  weather we have had all summer.roll on next season hope the weather is better,
 At the bottom pool, the bank and tree has collapsed with the water this year. boy has the river change,
 My outing the other week, i fish up river from the photos above. this one showing it at dusk.
 This photo, is same area before it got dark.

And the two photos above, showing another area i enjoy fishing.
