Thanks to our friends at the Llanthomas Fishery we are delighted to be able to put up for grabs a pair of midweek tickets for two days’ fishing on this brilliant beat of the middle Wye during the prime month of September (exact dates to be arranged to suit the winner).
Llanthomas is one of the most famous Salmon beats on the Wye but is fast becoming a well regarded fishery in coarse terms since it was opened up in 2012 with chub to 6lb, and very good roach, dace and grayling fishing; pike are also present in good numbers with fish to mid 20lb banked to date.
Then, of course, there are the barbel. Although not as prolific in number as the lower sections of the Wye, the fish here on the this beat of the middle river have a much bigger average size with several very good specimens to around the 12lb mark falling to those who test fished it last season.
Many who have fished at Llanthomas regard it as a ‘wild’ water and it is certainly a good step up for any anglers who feel they have cut their teeth on the smaller fish downstream.
The winner will need to arrange their own overnight accommodation (if it is required) and the guys at Llanthomas will be only to happy to assist with this and the locality offers a number of different options.
To be in with a chance of winning visit and ‘Like’ the Llanthomas Facebook Page then email firstname.lastname@example.org with the answer to this simple question: Which town, famous for its book festival, is Llanthomas close to? The closing date for entries is 30 June 2013 and the winner will be announced on 01 July.
