The Bala Country Fair was a great success with loads of people and great crowds for the demo's so if you came and watched thank you for your support.
It was then off to Plas Tan y Bwlch for a weeks residential fishing course. Day one we were at a small fishery and had great sport with everybody catching fish- then we fished Morwynion a mountain lake above Blaenau and boy it was tough.
We then fished Trawsfynydd and again it was hard- the fish had gorged themselves on Ants a few days earlier and were not in the mood to feed.
We spent the last 2 days fishing the Maelor stretch of the Dee and had great sport with good grayling being caught of dries. We had a young lad Jamie who was 16 and it was a great pleasure to watch him learn and mix with the group. Good luck yo him in September as he will be fishing the Welsh trials for next years Youth team.
After that it was home for a 3 hour stop to unload a load again to go to Gallaway Country fair. We finally got there at 1am.
The show was very busy and I taught a lot of people on both days but the highlight for me was seeing Tanya my youngest cast a 12ft6in Salmon rod in the main arena for the first time " That's my girl"
Its a few days at home now with the kids then off to the Fenland Fair ocer the bank holiday- might even take the girls fishing.
