YouAlex Dave B or Dave Roberts? I was working in Korea in 2008, and Dave just managed to get me in for the 2009 Festival when I came over on holiday and won it, having not fished since July 2008 when I went out there.
just checked and it was November 2007.
Day 1 I drew up the ash path and the only person to have a bite above the bridge was Mark Jones (Tredegar Angling) who had a 20 pound carp
Day 2 I drew next to you opposite the rowing club. You caught bleak and chublets on the 12ft LXL using a shallow waggler and won the zone.
Day 3 we drew down at Bartonsham after a horrendous frost. I was on Polish Camp and you were below me. I know that I caught one trout. I'm pretty sure that you also struggled.
I was recalling the episode to show that it's not always fabulous on the Wye - feast or famine usually!
