It was a challenging day for the 2nd Claerwen competition of the season. The bright skies kept the fish down in the morning but there was some great dry fly sport in the afternoon thanks to patchy cloud cover. Congratulations to John Felton on winning the competition and thanks to everyone who attended. Next club competition is on Dolymynach reservoir sunday 8th September.
Our 3rd Beginners session on Llyngwyn will be held at 5pm on Saturday 3rd August. Please can everyone wishing to attend let us know so that we can ensure we have adequate numbers of anglers and equipment.

Lots of small fish caught, but with the Coch-y-bonddu beetle failing to show up the bigger fish kept their heads down. 9 anglers caught 23 fish. Best flies were Montana nymph, Kate McLaren, Black Pennell, Zulu, Diawl Bach fished on Floating and Midge tip lines. An Otter was spotted in the reservoir and appeared to be doing better than most. Congratulations to Lynn Evans on winning the Claerwen Shield.
