2020 – a funny old year!

Well 2020 didn’t quite go to plan!

Like most sectors, fishing was hit hard by COVID-19 and guidance on Welsh fishing can be found here: https://gov.wales/sea-fisheries

Following the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions the fishing has been good but hampered by the fine sunny weather. Early mornings and evenings into dark is the time to get out on the water.

Fishing the surf beaches around rocky outcrops or our rocky foreshore gullies is producing. Keep on the move searching for fish moving in the tables of surf looking for “tasties” that the waves are throwing up. You will be surprised how much you can see spending time walking the shoreline searching out feeding fish.

Early August my son and I took a trip to a local “quiet spot” in amongst the chaos of the tourism season here on Gower now with so many people are having post-COVID “stay-cations”. Good to see for our local tourism and all the businesses that have been affected however makes for difficult fishing when the beaches are packed!

Bit of a climb up from the fishing grounds on the south side of Gower but perfect conditions (if a little bright). Look at all those gullies where the bass forage and you can work a fly in just a couple of feet of water to target them.

Cooling off after a long, hot day!

The boy has style but can he fish?!

Idyllic Gower

Please note:

We have started taking people out guiding over the past few weeks and will continue to do so until the end of the season all being well. All we ask is that you are symptom free and have not been in contact with anyone who has COVID-19.
