I travelled 9 hours Friday night/Saturday morning to fish,we have a place in Ottawa,but next year I am thinking of getting an air B’n’B within a few miles of a decent river peak run,drop me a PM if your going to book a flight,I can give you the name of a small town in Ontario with a $50 a night motel walking distance from a river where the numbers of fish will blow your mind,I found an Air B’n’B near there for next season for me and my sons,the fishing is as guaranteed as any fishing can be.

Do it with two mates as a really cheap fishing holiday with LOTS of fresh run fish,thousands in truth.Non-resident 8 day Ontario sports fishing licence is £34’ish quid?Theres a Bass-pro maybe two’ish hours away?I have seen lots of women fishing also.

D c, you'll know better than me, but when did they start putting the salmon/fish pass in radyr weir?

I was working with Glamorgan woodland Trust, at the time, and Fforest Farm was the headquarters.

I'm thinking 1985ish?

Just been reading a few different reports on it all, D c.

Looks like it's had a fair bit of work done on it since I was working in forest farm!!  👍
