Presented by Sir Edward Dashwood, Bt.:

Abercothi Estate has three rotating beats containing forty pools on the River Towy (Approx 1½ hours from Severn Bridge). This is some of the prime water on the best sea-trout river in the UK. Generally the sea-trout are fished for with a fly at night (although spinning is permitted in high water). The beats produce some 300-400 sea-trout averaging over 3lbs each season, including many into double figures. Prime sea-trout time is June to August although there is also a good run of salmon, especially in September and October.

A professional guide is available to assist (tips only) so beginners more than welcome.


Days to be agreed with the Purchaser to be taken April to October 2019.


Accommodation is not included but there is a Fishing Lodge which may be rented subject to an additional charge and availability.
