Just saying hello as this will be my first season fishing in the valleys.
My father (Nic) and I have tried over the last few years in varying locations in the area to not much luck, we're not hugely experienced fly fishermen and are looking to get out on the rivers more than we have the last few years to get some decent fishing in.
We were planning on taking a few walks down the Rhymney to start with to get an idea of the rivers depth and access etc... so that we aren't surprised by what we find when the season opens in March and waste good days struggling to get started.
Would anyone have any suggestions for good places for us to take a look at and see first? We live near New Tredegar so easy access from here would be especially nice, however, I'm yet to see a single fish on my walks along the river between Pontlottyn and New Tredegar, might just be me haha!
