My good friend and fellow South African Gerald Penkler is starting to find his feet in the UK where he recently accepted a good job opportunity. Gerald has been sending me catch reports of his fishing excursions and the last one was something that certainly raised some jealousy. Here it is in his words:
“In the UK, the month of May is truly a beautiful and rewarding time to fish with pleasant weather, plenty of greenery, blossoms and the inevitable insect hatches. Always looking to find new streams, we explored yet another small stream in North Wales that Google had revealed. It was flowing at a good level, fairly clear with a slight grey-green tinge. The effects of the recent flooding and heavy rains were apparent with plenty of debris, trees and sticks scattered on the banks and river bed itself.
