Submitted by M05608Use a qualified Blue Badge tourist guide in Britain so that you know you are being given the correct information and the guide is insured.
Submitted by M13790If you would like a day or two of fly fishing while traveling in the UK. I would suggest bringing a 4 or 5 piece smuggler with 4 or 5 weight line. However, if you don't fancy bringing your own tackle it is usually possible to hire a guide or 'ghillie' as it is know in the UK. He should be able to supply tackle and waders as well.
For some of the best wild brown trout fishing in the UK head for Wales and the Rivers Usk and Wye. The spring hatches on the Usk in April, May and June are really special.
Submitted by M13790Many visitors to the UK head straight for the hot-spots of London, Bath, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon etc. But do not forget Wales. An ancient kingdom stuffed with medieval castles, mountains and small market towns. It is not a big place and can be explored easily by car.
The country is mostly rural and the roads far quieter than in England. Wales has three National Parks; the Brecon Beacons, Pembrokshire and Snowdonia. A couple of days in one or more of these parks and you will see the best that Wales has to ... view more offer.
Have a look at your map and a trip from Bath to the Brecon Beacons is no more than 90 minutes. From there to Pembrokshire a further two hours and from there you can take the ferry to Ireland. A great Celtic road trip.
