Fished above weir in Nantgaredig early this morning. To me river looked perfect for spinning but I had no success. I didnt see or hear any fish or any other fishermen (which surprised me as it is a weekend). What is it that I dont know !!!. I may have better luck on the Cothi this afternoon.

Hi Folks

Fished Friday for the first time in a few weeks, due to having to take the wife away on holidays.

Fished with my brother who has had a good week with quite a few small grilse all returned.

He started Friday morning with a salmon of about 6 -7 lb a nice fresh fish, which was duly returned.

Later that morning he had a pike about 8-9lb. In the afternoon we moved to a new stretch and I went through first with my brother following me through. We both had exactly the same lures on and on my first cast I managed a small grilse of about 3 -4lb. My brother then in about twenty minutes landed and returned 2 grilse of about 4-5lb 1 of about 3-4lb and a sewin of about 3-4 lb.
He was fishing no more than 20 yards behind me. I watched how he was retrieving the lure the speed etc and could not see any noticiable difference to how I was retrieving. I think that the only difference is that his reels ratio of retrieve is much less than mine, and therefore my lure is coming back faster.

I will try a reel with a slower retrieve to see if it makes any difference.

The other reason could be he is just better at spinning than I am.

His last three outings ( Mon Wed Fri ) have resulted in him catching and releasing about 11 grilse and that has been when the water has been high.

The lure he favours is a rapala and he fishes it very slow on the retrieve.

Nice one Andy And Jimmy, good fish both of you.

I fished Halfway stretch after mid day, the water looked good for spin and worm, vis at about 2ft even with an HT Rap on, I wormed also but apart from a couple of tap's nothing to report, I think I need to pay more attention to the tide times.

Bruce1, in regards to the weight of condom for the Towy I usualy use Featherlite, much better classs of fish on the Towy! (sorry I couldn't resist):D:D:D
Sorry bruce1, it all depends on the water at the time, if the water is high I start with a 30g and work down in weight to what I feel is right,

I see he's on the salmon forum now!

Fished a few pools yesterday, in perfect conditions...never saw a fin move, but managed a couple of sewin to 2lbs, and a 2 yard pull from a salmon, but otherwise just not my season...or I need some new gear!!
