First of all, can I on behalf of the Dwyfor Angling Association Committee welcome you to the brand new website! With this blog, we hope you will receive up to date news on what’s going on during the seasons! Worth noting that we are also on Facebook as the group “Cymdeithas Enweiriol Afon Dwyfor Angling Association” so please “Like” the page and let us know what you think.
On the site we’ve tried to incorporate as much help and info that you want to know about the river, everything from pictures and descriptions of pools, ongoing projects as well as simple tips for new anglers to bear in mind.
At time of writing, The Dwyfor has been at a constant high! Unfortunately it’s come 4 months too late for us fishermen! As I watch the river flowing in a nice chocolate colour through the arches in Llanystumdwy Bridge, I can’t help myself but think “What if the season was extended? And how would our catch returns turn out?” Unfortunately, we won’t know, for the next few years at least.
There is a belief between the anglers in the club that the running fish are coming up in the later months as the years progress. Since our season finishes in October, we generally think that we’re missing the main runs. With seemingly quieter seasons on the catching front in the last few years for both Salmon and Sea Trout, these are worrying times. On the bright side, there have been good reports for the number of Sea Trout being caught last season which is very encouraging to say the least!
During the forthcoming months, working parties will be organised for routine maintenance along the river bank. If any member would be interested in helping, please forward a message to the secretary with your details who can in turn let the appropriate individuals know.
A note to individuals new to Angling, if you are interested in learning more about fishing and the different methods for what water level and key points and tips, please let us know! The Association has a qualified Level 1 Coach in Carl Williams whom will be happy to help.
The first date for your diary is the Afon Dwyfor Angling Association Annual General Meeting which will be held in the Marine Hotel, Criccieth on Friday the 17th January 2014 at 7.30pm. A warm welcome to all.
Here’s hoping for an excellent season in 2014! Tight Lines to all!
