We are delighted to welcome Justin Connolly as a Fishing Guide to the Estate.
Justin is a member of Game Angling Instructors Association and is qualified to teach single and double handed casting and fishing techniques. He is also an Angling Trust Level 2 Coach which has enabled him to be part of a program which has taken Fly Fishing into local schools with the help of the Wye Salmon Association to educate the younger generation who are the future of fishing.
Justin says “Living in the beautiful national park of the Brecon Beacons has given me the opportunity to fly fish the awesome streams, rivers, lakes and coast line this part of the UK has to offer, especially the River Usk, the River Wye and their tributaries, from wild brown trout and grayling to the magnificent sewin and salmon that run our majestic waters.
As a professional game angling instructor/guide I enjoy sharing these beautiful surroundings with individuals or groups who wish to learn or improve their fishing or casting skills in a safe and controlled environment.
I have also experienced the delights of fishing other parts of the world such as Scotland for Salmon and sea trout, Slovenia for their beautiful brown and marble trout, and this year have planned a trip to Sweden for their monster grayling.
I also help local clubs with tuition for their members and organise a number of casting and fishing skills days and fly tying nights for them and anyone to enjoy throughout the year.
This area has some of the best wild brown trout fishing in south Wales and when the conditions are right some great salmon fishing too.
I am very proud to be able to provide guiding services for The Glanusk Estate”.
