Llyngwyn Fishing Report December 2019
December saw some great results despite the lousy weather and some large catches from off the 3 boats we have available at Llyngwyn with bags up to 24 fish and cracking rainbows up to 6lbs in weight. There was also plenty of fish caught off the bank with the average bag of 4 fish in the range of 1½lbs – 6lbs. Popular flies used include Damsels, Vivas & Cats Whiskers. Again, it is great to see many anglers releasing fish to fight another day and using barbless hooks.
Thank you to all that braved it to make it to our annual Fur & Feather Competition at Llyngwyn. It was a cold and challenging days fishing after a night of extremely heavy rain and all anglers had a great days fishing followed by a meal and presentation of prizes supplied by Bob the Butcher at the Lamb and Flag.
1st Ben Evans with 3 fish @ 9 .1 lb
2nd Marco Orsi with 4 fish @ 7lbs
3rd Roger Lewis 4 fish @ 5.3lbs

Thanks to everyone who attended our beginners session this morning. Great to see a few fish being caught and some new faces. We will keep you posted with details of future dates.
We will be holding another beginners fly fishing day at 10am on Sunday 20th October at Llyngwyn. All are welcome and tackle will be supplied. Please let us know if you intend coming and please bring hats and sun glasses for protection.
Llyn Gwyn Fishing Report.
What a great month at Llyngwyn. 150 anglers were recorded netting 400 fish. No large fish were recorded but many in the 3lb region were caught. It was nice to see that many fish were returned to the water. John Henderson of Rhayader netted 9 fish for 20lbs but all were returned.
Once again the favorite flies proved best. The Damsel, Montanas, Buzzers, Hoppers and Daddy's on dry lines.
Llyngwyn continues to be stocked every two weeks and winter season tickets are now available from 18th October lasting until 19th March. You can purchase these from Powell's Newsagents or Hafod Hardware in Rhayader. Some say the lake fishes better in the winter than the summer.
River permits are also available for Grayling.
