Daily Prompt: Captivating

via Daily Prompt: Captivating

This is Llyn Clywedog situated near Llanidloes, Powys, Wales.

I have been a Fly fisherman for almost 5 years and visited most of the large lakes and reservoirs in uk. However, Clywedog is my favourite.

It has a huge history. A massive contribution to one of the most famous rivers in UK, The River Severn. There is a road that completely circles the lake and there is so much to see if you keep your eyes open. Regularly visited by the seasonal Osprey. Has resident Red Kites, Buzzards and an abundance of wildlife. Personally I think it is a hidden gem. The reservoirs dam was built between 1965-67 to regulate the flow of water in the Severn, both as a protection against flooding of the upper sections of the river during the winter months and also to ensure the maintenance of a minimum flow in the river during the summer. I fish the lake regularly competing in the local Clywedog League, and I am always blown away and Captivated by its beauty.
