Moelfre, Abergele, LL22 9RF
Tan -Y-Mynydd Tout Fishery sits just above the coastal town of Abergele. It is the perfect fishery for anglers learning to fish a single dry fly for targeting individual rising fish or fishing light lines and small nymphs. Tan y Mynydd is amazing in the evening. A good mix of rainbow trout, blue trout, tiger trout and brown trout can be caught here.
Griaglwyd Rd, Penmaenmawr, LL34 6ER
Graiglwyd Springs can be found at the top of the Penmaenmawr mountains. The view out to Puffin Island and beyond on a clear day is worth the visit alone but if you want to flex your muscles and target double figured trout Graiglwyd Springs is the place to go. I have personally had fish up to 20 pounds here. It is a great venue for teaching a varied range of tactics from dry fly to sinking lines. There are some great tiger trout that are a truly beautiful looking fish here. The dry fly fishing can be amazing and you have a real chance of landing a double figure trout on a dry fly here.
Cerrigydrudion, Conwy, LL21 9TT
If you want to take your first steps to fishing a large still water or even if you are experienced and just want a guided day, Llyn Brenig is a beautiful large reservoir based high up in the Denbigh moors. I can provide a day on the bank or my favourite day afloat drifting and covering the Lake. One of my favourite methods here is fishing a team of dry flies from the drifting boat and the top of the water fishing is breath taking. If you want to cover a specific method such as washing line or deep boobies all current methods used in competition fishing can be shown and taught.
Llanidloes. Powys, SY18 6NZ
This venue is a real gem and is Wales’ Premier large still water, Clywedog Trout Fishery based in mid Wales. This is a spectacular place with steep sided mountains dropping straight into the lake. The views and scenery are unreal with the ospreys and kites a common site. The fishing is simply amazing with all methods working well from deep down boobies to dry fly fishing. There is also a real chance of a fish of lifetime here. Please note; This venue is a minimum 2 day booking and is for guiding in a boat only.
