We arrived late Friday as the traffic was bad on the way down,don't you just hate travelling through brum,I do.we settled in to the castle apartment and then went out for a meal at the inn on the Wye ,it was raining pretty hard,and I didn't know what to expect for my morning session.
I arrived at the river just after dawn,a short walk from the property.I spent the first 30 minutes walking and looking at swims,the river was coming through at a fair pace,coloured as well.Tactics would be liquidised bread,flake or crust on the hook,straight lead,running ,2 foot hook length size 4 hook.
As I made my way down the bank side it was slippy and muddy.I fished two swims,with one rod in the first swim,and two rods in swim 2. I had decided to fish till around 12, so I could spend the rest of the day with Julie ,I moved to the last choice swim,the muddiest of all,I got down to the waters edge,saw a nice crease coming off a fallen branch,trouble was casting to the spot,due to trees and over hanging branches,a nice side cast saw me high the spot and 5 minutes later,a lovely chubby.
Was well pleased,a tough morning in deed.
Sunday saw me venture further down river,I fished 4 swims and caught two more chub,one to flake the other to crust.im having problems with my lap top so I can't post the pics.
The White House above the river,an enjoyable two mornings fishing,not easy by any means.very good rates to stay at flanesford,fishing is extra,with 4 sections of the Wye to fish,downside,poor mobile signal.
Tight lines bloggers,hope to get a new lap top,till the next time .
