Blog, news and reviews from Snowdonia Fly Fishing Guides
I had a very pleasant day on the river Eden yesterday with my good friend Geoff. The weather was good, the river kind and the fish proved to be challenging to catch but well worth the effort. Excellent quality, well spirited fish, what more can you ask for!
I'm already looking forward to my next visit!
It's always a pleasure to take a client to an upland lake in the Snowdonia National Park to fish for truly wild, indigenous, brown trout. Fish that have been resident for millennia and unadulterated though stocking or interference from man.
I love the peace and tranquility of mountain lakes, totally silence save the mournful cry of a solitary lapwing.
We started the day unable to see much of the lake through the low cloud but that didn't stop the spirited brownies from rising to a small dry fly. As the day warmed and the sun appeared the lake came alive with fish rising to claret dun.
The new season for grayling fishing started last week and in spite of the continued unseasonably wet, cold and windy weather the grayling fishing was excellent. I spent the day with a client and even though no fish could be seen rising a small dry CDC pattern soon tempted them, and a few wild brownies, to the surface. The quality and spirit of these early season grayling makes for a great day's fishing.
