River Usk salmon and river Towy,

Well the season has started but the fishing has been very slow, the season is running about 3/4 weeks behind what it should be. i have a few photos of some river Usk salmon, but as i said it has been very slow for springers this season. thr river Towy has been very slow with very few fish reported, have been told of one sewin of 14lb, plus two small salmon. flies have been going out in large numbers to Ireland , Scotland , south of England plus good numbers off to Russia , Norway , Sweden and a new country for me Japan. 



 The top three photos are of the beat i fish on the river Usk, and below the new rod i was trying out the Loomis NRX (green) 15ft what a great rod, and a few of my fly boxes.
