AT Shimano Loomis Fishery, Felindre, a change in the weather had made it feel like you were in a freezer.
As for the fishing, some days have been good and other days have been very slow.
Fish have been just cruising following the fly and turning off at the last minute.
As the winds changed, fish were back on the feed and some good fish were taken just below the surface.
Most of the fish have been taken on lures with a good range of different colours. Montana and mini-cat have been the two top flies with the ace of spades, viva and black nomad also doing well.
But there is always one angler who will fish something different and enjoy a red letter day.
