Welcome Sir, I too have fallen for the Wye and all it has to offer - such a charming and ever changing river through valley or meadow there is something quintessential about the Wye. I have a fair few relations in Hereford and into the Welsh borders. Fishing the Wye where it meets the Lug around Mordiford is one of my faves. I would imagine you have been all around this part.
Regards
P. :Hat:
Funnily enough the late great Dick Walker put me onto a perch swim he fished just above the Lugg / Wye confluence and though I tried it several times I never succeeded in catching a stripey there.

welcome, very interesting introduction.

Thank you JW - I have been very lucky to have had 40 years fishing the Wye - it really is an amazing river!

I was asked for a photo of the MKIV Avon but I'm not sure how to post it onto the site.....

Welcome to the forum, Troydog.

That Venables has a lot to answer for, tempting us with the intoxicating `Mr Crabtree Goes Fishing.' Many of us here are addicted to the teachings of that book. I haven't fished the Wye, but I wish you continued success on a beautiful river. I too collect litter from river banks, in
the forlorn hope that the sight of pristine nature will eventually shame people into taking their rubbish home with them.

Rain and wind over the Black Mountains means colour in the River Wye and maybe some good roach are sharpening up their appetite - just need to find the shoal......

I'm not doing very well on the TFF so far - I cant seem to work out how to engage effectively with other members, but I will keep trying.....

Troydog, you could ask Mark to set up your personal log section and then you can use that to record some of your stories and fishing trips with details and photos. Members are always interested in those types of posts and it's a great way to interact. They often go off topic and into interesting discussions. Hope that helps.
