Get hooked on Fly fishing at Llyn Brenig

Visitors to Llyn Brenig reservoir, near Corwen, have the opportunity to learn a new hobby this Sunday (6th July) when the skilful art of fly fishing will be available for all to try.

Dwr Cymru Welsh Water’s rangers are offering the one-day course for beginners and improvers aged ten and over from 9.30am until 4pm.

The cost is £30 for adults and £15 for juniors and includes the use of all equipment throughout the day as well as lunch. All under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Llyn Brenig Site Controller, Edmund Parsons, said: “Now that the weather is warming up it’s a great time for people to start a new hobby like fly fishing. The course gives beginners a chance to learn the basics and more experienced anglers to master the art of the sport.”

He added; “Places on the course are limited so anyone interested in taking part should call the Rangers’ Office, 01490 420463, to book their place.”


Llyn Brenig is a large river-regulating reservoir situated 400 metres above sea level on the Denbigh Moors in north Wales. Angling facilities are preserved exclusively for fly-fishing. The 919-acre reservoir has an international reputation and has previously hosted the World Fly-fishing Championships and regular Home Fly-fishing Internationals. The lake is stocked with 30,000 Rainbow and Brown Trout and has a visitor centre with exhibition, cafe and adventure playground. The estate is ideal for countryside walks and has a cycling path.

The reservoir site is open to the public during weekdays all year round and seven days a week from March to October.



Dwr Cymru Welsh Water is committed to encouraging access and recreation at its reservoir sites. Last year a record number of visitors have visited some of the sites, enjoying beautiful locations and learning about the environment.

Managed by Dwr Cymru Welsh Water operating partner United Utilities, the sites host a range of activities for all ages and abilities including angling, sailing and windsurfing, pond dipping, bird watching and guided nature walks.

Dwr Cymru Welsh Water is now owned by Glas Cymru and exists to give customers the best possible service while keeping bills as low as possible. Profits are reinvested in the business to deliver further benefits to customers.
