The Fishing Passport: River Crai (Danygraig) - Fishing in Wales

The Fishing Passport: River Crai (Danygraig)

The Crai is an upper river Usk tributary with some surprisingly large wild brown trout.

In comparison to the Upper and Lower Crai beats, the Danygraig beat is wider but with more tree cover. This fast flowing stream contains plenty of holding spots for trout, with boulders and pocket water presenting an exciting challenge for the fly angler.

The wading is relatively easy and the location is perfect for quiet day’s trout fishing. Barbless hooks must be used on this stretch.

The beat is ideally fished with a 6 to 7ft, 2 to 3wt rod.
