The small wild tributaries, large main-stem rivers, and wild still waters of South Wales offer the angler a huge expanse of fishing challenges and opportunities. From the small, wily, and totally opportunistic wild stream brown trout, to their larger, more sceptical main-stem cousins, and, of course, the wonderful ‘Lady of the Stream’, the grayling, all abound the local waters of South Wales.
