NEWS, VIEWS & REVIEWS FROM FLY FISHING SNOWDONIA
I was fishing the middle section of the Dee yesterday near Bangor on Dee. It was raining heavily and the normally crystal clear water was well coloured.
I really didn't hold out much hope of catching and the first hour yielded no results. However as the morning progressed a few flies started coming off and there were sporadic rises to them. This provided a real confidence boost and shortly thereafter I'm netting my first fish. The weather improved a little after lunch and I continued to pick up the occasional fish. Then late afternoon the sun came out and the river came alive for about an hour with small hatches of mayfly and olives and a big hatch of caddis.
I ended the day having caught at least a dozen fish, I lose count quickly, mostly on a dry fly. The perfect end to a hard days fishing.
