Fishing Season 2017
« on: March 20, 2017, 14:50 »
Well with 6 Nations over for another year my mind now turns to another obsession of mine. Fishing.
I'm a keen fly fisherman and fish the Rivers Tywi, Teifi & Loughour mostly for sea trout, and salmon. I also fish some still waters for brown and rainbow trout. I always mean to have a go at coarse or sea fishing but I never seem to get round to it. maybe this year. So share your angling stories on this page.

Taking my ancient buddy out for a walk along the local canal in the morning, all being well ;)

Ultra light spinning rods and see if the perch will play .... Haven't done that since we were kids, a loooong time ago  :lol:

Smooth hound will be running in a month or two here, plenty of whiting coming out with doggies and odd good thornys too.

I do all types of fishing apart from sea boat fishing.
Saying that i don't go fly fishing but bought all the gear a few years back (Orvice Clearwater #5 rod and an Orvice Battenkill BB3 reel) and it's sat in my wardroab, i will use it at some point but the sea fishing and coarse fishing carp fishing all take my time up.
Then there's the allotment!!! :lol:

It's even harder when you work all week and have to fit it all in including ferrying abot to dance class, gymnastics,
athletics, etc and on top of that a very needy and a little spoiled (in a nice way not bratty) 4 year old.  :wacko:

Nice replies all. Back in the bachelor days I used to fish obsessively up to 5 times a week. ....the I got married and had children, however my wife is surprisingly understanding and I do get out at least 1 a week, probably 2 when the night sea trout fishing is at its peak.

Rivers are very low at the moment. We could do with a nice flood to bring the sea trout up.

Rain is falling quite heavily here in West Wales at the moment. Hopefully we'll have a nice summer flood which will bring in the sea trout.
