Coarse Fishery, Llanarmon-Yn-Ial
18TH MAY 2011
Before I get
to the fishing, I it has to be said this fishery is one of the most picturesque
and well maintained fishery I have fished in a long time. From the stunning
views of the Clwydian range and surrounding area to the bird gardens, wildlife
and immaculate grounds.
All pegs were
hard standing with plenty of room and well spaced apart. The car park is of an ample size with good
access to the fishery, with a small drive up to the specimen lake for people
with lots of gear for long days and nights.
I was fishing
with my brother on the day, we fished the match/pleasure water (Pine Lake) on
the last two pegs on the left looking from the track, to the left of the large disabled
peg. From the first cast to the island my brother was in to a tench even before
his feeder had settled.
fished to the island around ½-1 meter from it, it was only about 2-3 feet deep
and as soon as my feeder went in the tip was round for a nice carp about 2 lb.
We must have taken about 150lb in tench and carp on the day between us. We
fished on triple red maggot, meat and pellet on size 14-16 hooks with a mix of
2-4mm pellet and ground bait in small cage feeders.
fished against the island for most of the day, with constant results. I started
against the island, and then baited the
margins, fishing the top three sections of my pole, which produced good carp as
soon as the float went in, after success in the margins I moved out mid water
about ten meters on the pole fishing pellet with again instant fish more tench
than carp. It did not matter where I fished or at what depth the fishing was excellent.
facilities were great; there was a cafe for hot and cold drinks and toilets available
on site. The sat nav does not work due to the location so if you follow the
brown signs with ducks on from the village (Llanarmon-Yn-Ial) it will take you
strait to the fishery.
All in all
this is a brilliant fishery with something for everyone. We fished the match/pleasure
lake but there is a carp and tench water (spinney) which has the larger fish in
it and also a specimen lake for the more serious carp angler.

1: Small cage
feeder to the island ½-1 meter from it, hook 14-16 at approx 1 foot from feeder, fishing red maggot meat and pellet, with mixed 2-4mm
pellets and ground bait in the feeder.

margins on the bottom using 6mm pellet on a size 14 hook, feeding 4mm pellets.
This can be done on pole of float rod.
