Salmon and sewin fishing in West Wales on the Towy, Cothi & Gwili.

March 31, 2019


The season is upon us again, the only changes with our waters is that rhiwlas and trefynys haven't been retained subject to the outcome of the NRW consultation. Fishing on fosters is as it was, only on odd days and all salmon to be released as well as all Sewin over 5lb. Thank you

**WE have secured the fishing at WENNALT Capel Dewi Rd, its just above the Pipe Pool.**

NRWs proposals have not gone through this season, but we as a club ask that all fish over 5lb be returned.

Catch report and carnival


A big thank you first of all to everyone who has signed the petition below so far. Please keep sharing to support this cause.

After a quiet start to the year this last week has been encouraging with numerous sewin caught, most notable a 9 ½ pounder taken on the twins. A few salmon have also been caught with another cracking fish coming out of the Cothi weighing in at 14lb, caught by Leigh (picture alongside).

In other news, Abergwili carnival is this coming Saturday (9th). There will be a casting tutorial as well as competition for children, potentially a fly-tying demonstration and a raffle with prizes consisting of a bottle of choice and two children’s fishing rods. Any help would be greatly appreciated and we would encourage you to come down for a couple of hours to support not only the angling club, but also the village.

Thank you

Petition to postpone the restrictions on fishing in Welsh rivers.

Please click the link below to sign the petition calling on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to ensure an immediate postponement of the 10-year catch & release proposal for all salmon on Welsh rivers, whilst a full and proper impact assessment is carried out into the effects on local business and tourist economy.


Thank you

We have managed to secure Dan yr Allt in Whitemill as well as retain an old favourite in Fosters in Abergwili.
