we are in the middle of the Teifi and Towy sea-trout fishing area.
In 1933, a sturgeon weighing 388lbs and measuring 9 feet long was caught in
the Towy -
Cenarth on the Teifi
is 15 minutes drive away. The salmon
leap in Cenarth is amazing in November and December. Coracles are
still used for fishing there and the Coracle Museum is well worth a visit.
Here at the mill, we have fishing
rights over about 100 yards of the river - there are small salmon and trout
easily seen in the Cych in the summer; in the winter, larger fish come
here to spawn and otters hunt for them.
If you are over 12, you must hold a valid rod licence to fish in the rivers, lakes and ponds in
the area. You can get a rod licence from any Post Office, or the Environment Agency website
www.environment-agency.gov.uk/fish, which also has details of local
by-laws for closed seasons, size limits and method restrictions. You will also need a permit from the owner of the water, which
you will probably have to pay for (we do not charge for fishing at the
mill). There is a freezer in your apartment and you can come and go at
any time during your stay at the mill.
