Here's a video of the mini Tenkara UK Forum meet last Monday a Llangollen North Wales.

Now, that's putting drone technology to good use. :)

At any rate, that's a beautiful part of the world: I was over from the States last fall doing some research in Welshpool and wished more than once I'd packed my Ayu...especially during a caddis hatch on the Banwy.

A couple of videos taken over the Xmas hols. They were made to try out my present from Sonia, a steady cam for the Go pro, as you will see I require a lot more practice and more balancing of the steady cam, but they are worth sharing. The first is a short outing tot he lower Alyn on Boxing Day just to wet a fly, the river really was not fishable but it was good to get out on the river for a while. The second video is of Rossett weir, there used to be a salmon ladder but the EA decided that it was not suitable for fish to get to the upper river, so after a public enquiry, "they did not want anything done to their weir". They went ahead and built what you see in the film. They built it in the spring during the time of many floods, their coffer dam was breached and wash away at least 3 time before they managed to finish the job.

Opening day 2014

For a change I'm close to home for the opening day! Even so I onle manage to wet a line for half an hour before the sun sets. The river is still high with the remains of the past few months rains but reasonable clear. With my wading boots out of action due to the sole hanging off I had no option but to fish from the bank. Being late in the day the temp started dropping quickly so my chance of catching passed with each cast. With little light I packed up and headed home my new Tamo un christened. The weather gods seem like they are smiling for the rest of the week? Little or no rain forecast. London for me for the rest of the week but the weekend to look forward to.
