1st River Usk springer, of the year.

 Well my mate Ken Evans, who must be one of the most constant salmon angers on the river Usk. did take the first salmon off the river Usk this season, a stunning cock springer of 35 inches long. and with sea lice, he had it on a new set up i got from him at the end of last season. he had a go of one of my Airflo Enigma salmon rods and fell in love with it, so he had to have one and not looked back. 
 Ken, Has been a very good friend of mine for a number of years, very good angler on both the rivers Usk and Wye. and above is a book he wrote over the years, and put it in print in 2012 a great read. get hold of it sure you will love the read, the book is about the river Taff and on the cover my old mate Spencer John laying out a line.
