season's end close.

Well its another season drawing to a close, how fast it has gone. and not helping was the low water in the rivers most of the year, with fish staying out at sea and not running till very late in the season. the early part was good April for some big sewin running the river Towy, as i write we have had a big rain fall and the river are on the rise. so there are a good number of salmon starting to come in to the river systems, i will be on the river Towy tomorrow water conditions willing. next week i will be off to British Columbia salmon fishing just cant wait to go, i have been tying flies for the trip. but customers orders have been coming in thick and fast this past year so has held me back on my flies, but will be topping them up this week. but i do have some nice photos of some salmon to post for you to see, plus flies hope you like them.
