Fishing tactics for Lake Vyrnwy 

Fishing Lake Vyrnwy  | Tactics  | Tarrif  | Fishing Breaks | 

Most fishers on Lake Vyrnwy use three flies and drift along loch-style. A good rule for choosing a fly for the lake is ‘When in doubt, go for black’.

Leaders in the early months of the season will be a team of three black or darkish wet flies size 10 or 12. Black or dark lures, like the Montana or Viva, work well early on as well on the tail.

By late May, lighter coloured flies like an Invicta and, maybe, a Peter Ross on sunny days should be given a swim.
