    4 of us turned up for a bit of bank maintenance and over 5 hrs quite surprising what we achieved.
    A bit of loping of willows cutting branches and shoveling of several steps and all looked good.

    Sun was out and temperature was about 11.5 , olives being blown up river and a trout was rising to take a few.
    Water was 0.67 on the Usk gauge and running lovely and clean.

    A few coffees later and Welsh cakes we called it a day.

    Arrived early this morning with a calm mist over the fields.Knew the river was struggling to drop to an appreciable level for some quality fishing.

    Still the river was just over our gauge and clarity about 2ft but with a lot of dirt suspension in the river to.
    Fished hard at the top of the beat then fished down and back up again.Dropped down to the bottom beat not a fish seen or heard.Probably still to high for us down there.

    Saw an early hatch of sedges with a few olives to but only one trout stirred covered it with a Jingler but no offers.
    Kingfishers out,Curlews calling again early morning and a nice Spotted Woodepecker made an apperance to.
    Warm sun on your face made a change

    Excellent. Thanks for the update and photos. Being on the river at this time of year it must feel like you're there waiting for the moment it comes to life. So exciting...

    Have been out several times and covering fish but still blanks.
    Same happened today but while I was fishing tucked in by the trees an otter came past within several feet porpoising.

    After a minute or so a good size lamprey came past swimming eraticaly then I noticed why most of its tail had been eaten away.

    Back out again soon.
