I just took a short vacation down in South Wales. To be exact I was down inthe Forest of Dean district doing a bit of hiking and practicing my skills with the new Nikon Digital SLR I just bought. It is a beautiful place to capture landscapes and I sort of looked around for the sort of shot that Ansel Adams would wish to compose. I went to Symonds Yat Rock of course, like all of the tourists do. There is a reason for that. Now I have started to look for a rental property to rent in south wales, perhaps something on the Bristol Channel is what I had in mind, but I was not really aware if the area there is much good. It may be less suited for my purposes than I know of right now.
I am thinking that I need to figure out where the best fishing is before I make up my mind. You have the River Severn and the River Wye, along with the coast waters. I like to fish in the ocean, but only when it does not frighten me too much and the ocean is big enough to frighten any sensible person rather easily. Of course I could go fish for carp in one of those man made lakes where the fish are always stocked up and they grow them as big as they can. For one thing I like to catch fish that you can eat and enjoy. I suppose you could eat carp, but I do not think much of the taste myself. I spent a lot of time in the United States and I loved being able to catch fish and cook them up after the fact. Of course no matter what you need to limit your fish due to pollutants.
