Blog, news and reviews from Snowdonia Fly Fishing Guides
The weather is still stunning up here, warm, dry and sunny and the sunsets are spectacular, I never tire of watching them. It's been the best summer I can remember. The downside is we've had no sustained rain since April and the rivers with small catchments have been struggling for months. However the bigger catchment rivers are still fishing well.
The swallows and swifts have gone and today I saw my first snipe of the season. This seems early and I hope it's not an omen for a bad winter! There are some very large hatches of black gnat at the moment and as I walked one of the dogs passed a couple of upland lakes the rise forms were prolific.
Back home I busied myself at the vice tying black gnat patterns ready for a fishing trip on Wednesday!
