Rivers Of Wales The Conway
There would be excellent salmon fishing in Wales were the rivers
properly preserved. The Conway (North Wales) is a beautiful stream, and
it is a great pity it should be neglected; however, I believe it will be
very soon protected from the nets, &c., as there are a few spirited
gentlemen in the neighbourhood of Llanwrist and Aberconway, who will
rent and preserve it for fly fishing only, all the way up from the town
of Conway to Capel Curig. The salmon flies in my list, made on small
size hooks, will suit it well, varied according to the state of the
water; and my list of trout flies will be found admirable for it.
Information respecting season tickets, and rules of the fishing, may be
obtained at the Inn at Llanwrist.
