The plan for Sunday was for a mornings float tubing with Simon. We thought we may be able to sneak a couple of hours in before the forecast northerlies made it too hostile. The planned venue was Lakehill on top of the Llandegla moors. Due to the exposed location you can take the forecast wind speed and double it, so after a brief inspection we cancelled.
So a substitution with a quick trip to the Alyn at Ithell's Bridge. Left the Tenkara in my pocket and armed the brook rod with a couple of beaded nymphs. Took about eight fish, one Grayling of about 25cm, the rest fingerling Trout and Grayling. After losing my cast on a snag, I climbed out to look for Simon. He'd covered most of the beat in double quick time in an attempt to keep warm. Cold, wet, numb hands and chattering teeth brought an end to proceedings after about an hours fishing. With the Northerlies forecast for the week ahead, no further trips planned.
