The Fishing Passport: Pant y Llyn

Set in remote and stunning surroundings, a few miles south of Builth Wells, this 8 acre upland lake offers anglers the chance to catch hard fighting wild carp.

The carp here are said to be the original wild carp strain introduced by Medieval monks. There are also chub in the lake.

Pant y Llyn is prone to heavy weed growth so it is best suited to either surface baits or stalking the gravel margins.

Weed raking is permitted, and does bring fish in. The deeper water in the northern corner usually stays clear all year.
