Fly fishing season begins on March 3rd on the River Usk. Gliffaes Hotel has two and half miles of fishing on the Usk so before the season begins we have a day cleaning up the river bank, yesterday was the day.
A lot of rubbish is brought down by the high winter flows on the river and before all the trees and shrubs spring into leaf makes this a good time to clean up.
We managed to fill a one tonne builder’s bag with everything we found as this short video will show you.
[youtube id=”DOkC3BXDJ3M” mode=”normal” align=”center”] Fishing at Gliffaes Hotel is open to non-residents but please call us on 01874 730 371 to check availability.
We are still unsure as to when we can re-open. I think it will be around the 24th May.
Gliffaes will not be open for outdoor dining only – I am afraid the numbers don’t stack up for us.
Mark Drakeford, The Welsh First Minister has given no definitive date for the opening of indoor hospitality in Wales.
This matter is further confused by the local elections on the 6th May. If Labour is returned to power he tells us that he will be minded to consider the opening of indoor hospitality on the 17th May and I guess he will give us about a week’s notice taking us to the 24th May.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
