So with the salmon season over for a few months here in south wales, a lot of anglers focus on the grayling.
The grayling a lovely looking fish, Latin name Thymallus thymallus or called by a lot of people
 'The lady of the stream'
A lot of you match anglers might recognise this chap as 'team airflow' member phil cotton with the first fish of the day
No sooner had I put the camera away there was another on the bank from the same swim
And another from from phil  
Ha right then rod down 'sun shine'  'my turn' the first tidy fish of the day for me

This was an interesting catch a nice grayling, had phil and myself just been comenting on the lack of small fish around that were there on the previous trip out pops this fish.
This is a top view of the same fish with a pretty nasty mark on its back from a or goosander or a merganser 
The last fishy shot of the day, after a nice days fishing it was home for tea and cake.
And of course what would fly fishing be with out getting stuck up a tree or two
thanks for taking the time to read my short blog

So here we are, I am still getting the hang of this blogging
here are few picks from a recent trip to a local wild brown trout water CRAI reservoir situated in the Brecon beacons, not a massive water some 100 acres. Butt a lovely place with some stunning views.
as you can see the water level was down a bit this is the dam wall  
my first fish of the day not a monster by any means  
and another  
view from the top end of the reservoir again showing how low it was which was at our advantage as the crai is very steep sided, and there is not many places to get in when it is full.  
oh that's me the fish will never see me with that camo. 
beautiful little brownie 
And finally my partner in crime pluging away at the end of a good day in the office with some 20 odd wild brownies between us
