PIW Friday

This would be a brilliant place to film a horror movie. A misty spooky start to a days Grayling fishing in the heart of the beautiful Welsh countryside. This church is on the banks of the river Irfon, a tributary of the Wye, just a couple of miles from Builth Wells. From the church you can see three houses so I am guessing that there is not a huge congregation attending on a Sunday morning.
The Irfon is a stunning natural, barely fished river that is full of wild Brown Trout and Grayling and I had a brilliant time trotting maggots and landing a fish every other cast. I explored several swims, from long glides to rapids and ended up catching Grayling to 1lb 
and Trout to 1lb 6oz, nothing massive but a super days sport. 
Once the sun came out the church did not look half as scary.
See what I mean, middle of nowhere!

  1. A couple of great fish there Joe, I like the trout but theres somthing about a greyling i think you will know what i mean,
    And the little church hasn't changed a bit, but looks newly painted, I camped in the grounds down the track by the gate while fishing that very river back in the 60s,
    Thanks for sharing this Joe, It brings back some great memories mate,
    All the best to you and yours,
