Aberystwyth Angling Association: Llyn Syfydrin

Llyn Syfydrin is a wide moorland lake of 50 acres with open sedge lined banks. It is accessed by a decent track from Llyn Blaenmelindwr.

The water here is heavily peat stained making it appear very deep. The opposite is actually true – it is a shallow lake with a dark peat bed.

Syfydrin holds a free rising head of dark coloured wild brownies in the 8 oz to 1lb size bracket. The evening sedge hatches can be phenomenal here, as can falls of terrestrial insects through the summer.

The fish respond well to busy bob flies drawn through the surface film. It is easy to fish, especially on the track side and northern end. However caution must be taken on the far bank – the numerous bays and points look appealing, but it is very shallow and quite boggy, so difficult to approach in parts.

Fly fishing, spinning and earthworm fishing are allowed on Syfydrin.
