Tel: 01874 612612 or 01874 612800.

Cost: £15 per day or £35 per season. Discounts for children, OAP’s and residents of Brecon.

Species present: Brown trout, some rainbow trout, sea trout and salmon. Twaite shad also run in season.

Average size of fish: Trout are around 12oz but larger fish are present. There is a bag limit of six fish per day, but we are sure that, like Tim, you would like to see all the fish returned.

Catch and release: Yes, actively encouraged

Wading allowed: Yes, not before March 20th

Most consistent flies for trout: Olive adult and nymph imitation. Try to match the hatch at the time. Avoid wet flies fished downstream as this is limited to early-season success.

Most consistent flies for salmon: All black, Munro Killer, Usk Grub and the Latex Prawn.

Tuition available: No

Fish-smoking service: No

Shop: Fishtec is nearby and can supply whatever you need

Toilets: Yes, 50 metres upstream of the bridge

Top flies: Due to the prolific fly life it is recommended to fish small buzzers and dries rather than lures for the better/larger fish.

Recommended rod: 8ft 6in to 9ft 3in to 5-wt

Recommended lines: Floating line

Recommended tippet: Tapered leaders with a fluorocarbon tippet for dry flies. 100 per cent fluorocarbon for nymphs, tapering is not essential.

Useful extras: Bite indicators and heavy nymphs. The pool under the bridge is very deep! Take some cash as there is a great fish and chip shop next to the bridge.
