Wild is Where You Find It

A year on an urban river. Fly fishing the river Taff for trout and grayling from January to December 2022. This five mile section of the river flows through the suburbs and city of Cardiff with great fishing and easy access to some wild and peaceful locations.

Nice video. Thank You for showing the different Flies used.

Details about your net...


Beautiful video. Makes me happy for you and envious for me. My local New Jersey ponds are iced over so won't be going fishing again until March.

Please provide more details on your net. What size/brand is it? What kind of mesh? How do you attached it to your vest and keep it ready to use? Looks like you've used cable ties to hold pipe insulating foam around most of the rim. I think this is to keep the net floating level while you unhook and photograph fish. Or maybe it keeps the net floating if it breaks loose and you need retrieve it, Or both. Or some other reason.


Net Details...

The net is an old model of the Greys GS Scoop Net with an 18 inch hoop. There is a magnetic link in the end of the handle which I clip to a plastic carabiner on the strap of my shoulder pack so the net is always to hand, the net lanyard is also clipped to the carabiner so. The reason I use the foam is to keep the net floating while I photograph or video fish. I can hold and fire the camera with one hand and the fish with the other without the net sinking from under the fish.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
