GW from Bromsgrove had 15 at Lyepole, mostly with a nymph fished New Zealand-style.
JM from London had 7 on dries from the Dore at Chanstone Court, while DR had 6 during a mayfly hatch at Abbeydore.
Beautiful as it is, this is a place of distinctly odd contrasts, at least at certain times.
On the one side there are grazing cows, mellow farm buildings and all the rural glories of the peaceful Golden Valley, overlooked for centuries by the mediaeval abbey.
On the same day HP from Monmouth reported an unpleasant experience downstream at Arrow Mill, where an electric fence gave him a jolt in the back.I sympathise with that, although I might point out there is a worse experience you can have.Suffice it to say never, ever, make the mistake of relieving yourself against an electric fence. On the 5th, HC from Wales had 9 trout from Llyn Bugeilyn using a Black Gnat and a Diawl Bach.PB of Gloucester had 7 trout, 2 of them at 17 inches, at Trallong and Abercamlais using a Ginger Quill and a Blue Dun - a traditional approach if ever there was one.On the 1st June, MN from Bristol took 19 trout to 17 inches at Glan yr Afon.
