Welsh week end part two

Sunday the 25 th of August Sarah Darlington drove me to Gliffaes,on arrival I grabbed a pot of tea
until my ghillie arrived ie Jimmy Devoy,he decided to fish another beat called Llandetty about two
miles from the hotel between Llangynidr and Talybont.
We tackled up put on chest waders and walked through the sheep pasture to the river where we
waded to midstream in pursuit of trout.
We stopped for a ploughmans lunch at the Red Lion,we returned to the River Usk
casting better in the lower beat,neither of us caught a fish as trio of  buzzards mewed above.
While grey wagtails and a superb Kingfisher ended our day as the trout began to rise.
Jimmy drove me back to Gliffaes where ended a nice day in the Usk Valley.
