|Leopards and Large
'Leopards and Large Dark Olives'
is an article that I published in the March 2009 edition of
Trout and Salmon.
The article features
some of the fantastic
Welsh fishing available courtesy of
Wye and Usk Foundation.
The world famous Large Dark Olive
(Baetis rhodani) hatches that occur on the river Usk are a sight to behold for
any entomologist or fly fishing enthusiast.

Every Spring I try my luck during
the Large Dark Olive hatch in a bid to run into some of the strong and
stunningly beautiful wild brown trout that inhabit the magnificent Usk
