Just back from fishing the Rheidol in Wales its a hydro river with rises in level of 12/18inches , This last week at peak fishing times ,i.e.dusk into the dark they chose to generate by 11ish the water dropped back down again and the next morning the river was back to summer low level .. Anyone got any good ideas on how to fish YOYO water like this .

A very special fly called a "Dupont Spinner." Actually a stick of dinomite.

Andy, checked one of my reference books and will ammend my last. Can't remember the conversion tables (too long in the States and away from Canada) but a quarter pound of Sentex (or is that Centex) will do the trick. Light/pull fuze, run like hell down steam with a pre-positioned net and your home free for dinner ... for a week or two.
 
Just check closely for the wardens as, effective as this may be, you could be on bread and water for a few years.
