FLIES FOR LLANDEGFEDD

The following flies are the types of combinations that are tried and proven patterns that catch fish out on the water

March to Early May

Fish these on a Di5 and Di7 lines from a boat with a 12ft leader.


Early May to End of June

Fish these on an intermediate or sink tip type line from a Boat (Point fly will be the blob booby. Try switching the middle dropper [hopper] and top dropper [cormorant] round to suit your preference)

End of June to Beginning of September

This can be a difficult time for fishing with higher water temperatures and risk of algal blooms on Llandegfedd. Fishing over deeper water will be essential. Methods can vary from using two boobies (seen above) on a Di7 line to get down to feeding fish,to floaters/midge tip lines with nymphs. Or if there is a slight ripple then you could use dry flies (usually hoppers/owl buzzers of various colours [usually size 12s]) on the surface.


Middle of September to the end of the season (31st October)

Normally this can be the most exciting time of the year, with fish occupying the upper layers of the water as the air temperature cools somewhat.  Tactics can vary with 2 boobies pulled on the surface. A booby on the point with 2 hoppers or dabblers on the droppers.  Tactics for this is to pull about 3-4 times to 'pop' the booby and get some interest, then figure of eight until the line tightens and the fish is on.  Dries can be also an alternative with hog hoppers and bushy hoppers doing good damage to fish stocks!!  
When the October comes, if the weather cools, you may need to go down a bit with fast glass and Di3 sweep line coming into its own.  Again use the booby/hopper/dabbler tactics but this will pull flies a bit deeper as the water cools down further to get down to feeding fish.
