    Default River Dyfi 2018

    Well I’m the customers £800+ lighter in the wallet, but it comes with a little card that says I can fish the Dyfi for 2018 again....on any day from 1st April till the end of October ( excluding Sundays) so I don’t mind one bit��

    I’m looking forward to this season more than last; a good friend of mine has finally got in after a long time on the waiting list, and I’ve not got to go to Australia ( hurrah) this summer.....or for the foreseeable ��������

    I don’t suspect I’ll get to the river till early May, I’ve got a week in Scotland salmon fishing in April first, then some early trout fishing, but I’m starting to get excited about the spring- even though it’s snowing outside!

    Hi Andy - how do you get on the waiting list and how long is it likely to take to eventually get in?

    Hi Alwyn,

    You need to write to the Secretary and apply for membership ( Iím assuming youíre not a local rod- 4 miles from the catchment to qualify I think)

    Itís a long wait; somewhere between 15 and 18 years at the moment......once youíre in you tend to stay in- until age and infirmity get to you.

    Hi Andy, thanks for this. Sadly I'm not local. That waiting time might just coincide with my retirement! I think I will have to accept that day / weekly tickets is the only way I will get to fish these waters.

    To be fair unless you are local, or live reasonably nearby ( I’m 40 miles away, so jus5 less than an hour) it’s difficult to get to the river enough unless you are retired......

    Friends of mine consider a couple of weekly tickets on the lower river (giving you four days lower, two days upper reaches) as good value at just over £200 for the week.....

    I was addicted to seatrout fishing from when I first went after finishing as a student in the 1990s, and luckily put my name down... it’s a grand river if you’ve not fished it.

    Yeah, do it! I put my name down a few years back and the letter from Richard confirming I'm on the list is in pride of place in our downstairs loo. Every morning as I brace myself for another day in the City I look at that letter and dream of things to come. Hopefully the river will still be a cracker in 15 years or so, when my time comes.

    Ps: tight lines for the new season. Can't wait for my first trip to the Cemmaes Post Office this year to pick up my day ticket. It's a pilgrimage.

    I did go out on Friday. There were one or two fish splashing around, but the river was low and there is a lot of slime on the bed. No interest from sewin, but surprisingly I caught a nice trout on a tube fly!
    A decent flood is needed to refresh the river and encourage some fish up.
    Won’t be long now.

    Update 11th & 12th June.
    Had a short visit much against local advice but my wife was very keen to go to the Dovey for 2/3 days , the local advice was that the river was very low and needing a good flush through.
    No fish caught , no takes either , fished the lower pools for a couple of hours each night. There were no other anglers out that I saw on Monday and I think there were 2 others on Tuesday , only saw a distant torchlight though so not sure.
    Very little activity on Monday but a fair few fish moving on Tuesday night but I couldn't tempt one.
    The river is very very low and a lot of slime on the bottom , I think we need a good drop of rain but can't see any sign of any at the moment.
    Fish were moving from one pool to another in the night and the disturbance made me think it was otters until I saw one running through such shallow water it created quite a disturbance.
