Coming to the end of season, and fishing river Usk.

Hi Guys, Sorry i have not up dated my blog for some time, i have been so busy this year even my fishing has taken second  place. but roll on the new season but we have 17 days left so will make the most of it and get out as much as i can, a lot has happened  this year i have left Deercreek and no longer a pro tier for them. but i have joined two great company's  as a pro tier, they are are Foxy-tails by far the best for all kinds of fly tying goods. but by far the best for there furs just top quality,the other company is Bond-bug well know for there UV resins again just the tops.      

 Well i did manage to have a day on the river Usk last week, and a new beat for me on the lower Llangibby water. there was a little to much water to fish a lot of it, but in the morning did hook a fish but it came adrift soon after hooking it. at 1 oclock we stopped for a cup of coffee and a sandwich and started again about 2.30pm and on my third cast hooked up and this time did land it.

 Above is were i started after the coffee break, this swim has seen fish to 38lb landed here and had seen a few fish so was hope full.
