A Llanidloes primary school pupil has won a day out fishing at Llyn Clywedog after being named the winner of a competition to design a new logo for the largest fly fishing league of its kind in the UK.

Llyn Clywedog Trout Fishery, in association with Llanidloes Primary School, recently put the creative talents of the pupils to the test to work on a new logo.

The OES-sponsored Clywedog League has competitors travelling far and wide to take part over six heats throughout the year. It has now also become tradition that competitors receive a commemorative mug each year to mark the occasion.


This year, the fishery turned to Llanidloes Primary School’s Years 4, 5 and 6 pupils and asked them to consider the environment, the rich flora and fauna and design a logo to be used on the mugs.

Fishery manager Russell Owen said: “We are extremely grateful to Llanidloes Primary School for taking the time to work with us on this project and we were overwhelmed with the standard and numbers of entries.

“Of the more than 40 entries received, there were a number of standout entries and we found it very difficult to choose one winner. We therefore turned to our sponsors OES and asked their managing director Wayne Jones to decide.”

County Times: The new logo was designed by Llanidloes Primary School pupil Alteya Granero FreemanThe new logo was designed by Llanidloes Primary School pupil Alteya Granero Freeman.

Wayne chose an entry by Alteya Granero Freeman which he felt highlighted the fishery, the surrounding area and facilities that the fishery offer fantastically well.

Alteya and her family will be invited to the fishery in spring 2024 to formally receive the prize of an experience day to include a tour of the facilities, trout farm and lake, followed by a short fishing session and, if successful, trout for tea. A further 25 pupils will receive a runners-up prize.

Recently voted the number one fishery in the UK, Clywedog Trout Fishery look forward to another exciting year in 2024 when they will be hosting the senior autumn international for the first time where anglers from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales will descend on the area to determine who will be crowned home international champions.

Russell Owen added: “Having the opportunity to showcase the fishery and surrounding area to anglers from all over the UK and Ireland is something we’ve worked very hard for over the last few years and we’re very proud of being chosen the host venue for 2024.”
