Tan-y-Mynydd Trout Fishery -
The Deadly Ten Flies
 
Below are the recommended 10 flies that you will need to ensure a superb days fishing at Tan-y-Mynydd.
 
Black Buzzer with Coloured Cheeks
Black Buzzer with Coloured Cheeks
The black buzzer will work all year round, use a almost static retrieve and watch for the gentle takes. The buzzer works best with a coloured cheek either yellow or red.
Bloodworm
Bloodworm
This Bloodworm with multiple legs works best when there is a gentle breeze on the water to give it movement. Worked best on the colder days at approximately 4ft down.
Diawl Bach
Diawl Bach
This great little nymph works well all year but a slow retreive is a must. Figure of eight retrieve is recommended. Work well when the trout are fry feeding.
Damsel Nymph
Damsel Nymph
Again another fly that can be used all year, however the best results in Winter come from a slow retrieve and in summer a fast retrieve will provide good sport.
Pheasant Tail Nymph (PTN)
Pheasant Tail Nymph (PTN)
A good versatile fly for all season and is a must have fly in any fly box. Works well with a slow retrieve but can also be 'ripped back' to entice fry feeding trout.
Hares Ear
Hares Ear
When the fish are within the margins searching for food, the Hares Ear comes into it's own worked with a medium to fast retrieve. Many larger fish are caught on the Hares Ear.
Klinkhammer
Klinkhammer
Perfect when the water has a good chop on it, the hackle makes the fly visible to the angler but the body remains under the surface to attract the trout.
Okey Dokey
Okey Dokey
Fished in the same way as the black buzzer, the okey dokey will provoke the trout into taking.
Olive F Fly
Olive F Fly
When the trout are surface feeding heavily but all other dries have failed, the F Fly will create a stir. Casting to a rise will see this small fly just break the surface and then the trout will explode into action.
Sedge
Sedge
Perfect for early morning rises and also the evening rises. Works best as the light is fading in the evening with a fast/very fast retrieve, creating a wake behind it, then watch for the aggresive trout chasing and wait for the arm wrenching take.
