The festive period proved good for most anglers at Llyngwyn, but hard for a few. Roger Lewis of Rhayader landed 24 fish on three visits to the lake, the heaviest weighing 4lb and the best daily bag was four fish for 13lb. Some large fish were caught, the best being a 9lb rainbow caught by a gentleman from Whitchurch on a Pheasant Tail Nymph. Also, Rob Davies of Llandinam had one weighing 8lb, caught on a small Cat’s Whisker. M. Bradbury of Hereford had a catch of 5lb 8oz caught on a Cormorant fly.
