Set in a heavily wooded steep sided valley in the Brecon Beacons, Talybont is a 318 acre wild brown trout wilderness reservoir. Fishing is fly only and only permitted from the bank. Floating lines with small imitative and traditional patterns such as the Coch-y-bonddu are recommended. The ranunculus beds near the crumbling bridge pillars are renowned for being a good spot.
