Cwm Hedd fly fishing report 20th March 2016 -damsels, buzzers and bloodworms

There’s been some excellent fishing in the last few weeks, interspersed with a few challenging  days of course.  A stock top-up is on its way from Exmoor Fisheries this week, and with a south westerly wind forecast fishing conditions should be favourable.

Please remember that Cwm Hedd is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays so we  won’t be open on Easter Monday

Ken Pascoe was the winner of the Cwm Hedd Troutmasters fish off, with 7 fish totalling 20lbs. Mike James and Keith Cox were 2nd and third respectively.

It’s been fairly quiet in terms of anglers over the last couple of weeks with the reservoirs back open, so day ticket anglers have enjoyed  plenty of platform choice.  Paul Elsworthy brought 10 fish to the net over two visits, while it’s was 11 for Keith Cox last week, nine for Stewart Gordon, eight for Steve Wakeham and Mark Whalley and seven for Lee Ashcroft and Huw Davies.  Rad Novacowich had a great morning bringing five to the net, while Gordon Smith, Ethan Clarke, Andy Whitnall, Bill Williams, Ian Humpreys, Peter Bayliss and youngest angler Etahn Clarke was over the moon with his four fish.

As always there has been a wide variety of flies used in the last few weeks, with the most consistent being damsels, bloodworms and buzzers.  More people on intermediate lines, but floating lines have also brought success.

Open 8am-4.30pm Wednesday through to Sunday.  5 minutes from Junction 28 of the M4 Newport. Fishery rules, directions and further information on . Tel 07813 143 034 before 6pm; 01633 896854 (lodge during fly fishing opening hours).

Happy Easter everyone!
