Sewin for beginners

Lyn Davies offers some no-nonsense advice for newcomers to sewin fishing. Some of the most successful sewin anglers I know are somewhat narrow-minded. They wouldn’t dream of a day’s brown trout fishing, or a visit to a local fishery for rainbows – they are specialists in their field.

In with the old…

Lyn Davies turns to some old favourites for inspiration on Llandegfedd Reservoir, South Wales. A newbie fly fisher once asked me, “Do the old fly patterns, still catch fish?” He was referring to the ‘classics’ of yesteryear.

Isle of Lewis – a fly fisher’s paradise

Gasping for breath, I’d finally reached the departures entrance at Bristol airport having lugged three huge bags stuffed with my fly-fishing gear from the long stay car park. I was off for a week's fly-fishing on the Isle of Lewis, part of the Outer Hebrides. It was the first week of May and with the weather a month or so [...]
