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.
