Early Season Trout Fishing At Gliffaes Country House Hotel

Early Season Trout Fishing At Gliffaes Country House Hotel

3 Day Fly Fishing Break In The Brecon Beacons In March

The Trout season begins on the 3rd March on the Usk and there are eager fishermen out there who are keen to brave the Spring weather and have a go for an early season Brownie. The Usk is known for its hatches of March Browns & Large Dark Olives early in the season; fast and furious, too long for lunch and you will miss it. It is around midday to 2 o’clock that these hatches suddenly erupt.

We have put together a couple of flexible 3-day fishing breaks for March so you can get some early season fly fishing with the comfort of Gliffaes to come back to after a chilly day on the river. Whether you wish to come on your own or with a partner or if two of you would like to fish we have a package for most options.
