Techniques covered:

  • The correct approach, reading the water and productive times

A bespoke guiding service for the adventurous angler wanting to experience the charms of night fly-fishing on some the most productive rivers in South Wales – the River Loughor and Towy.

They say local knowledge is paramount, so with over thirty-years experience I can significantly improve your chances of success. We’ll arrive at the river early for you to have a feel for the surroundings and view the river in the daylight. We’ll run through the basics, from tackle and fly choice to the most successful fishing techniques. Let me take away all the guesswork to enable you to focus on the fishing. I’ll show you the most efficient access points to the most productive stretches of these rivers.

Remember though, sea trout fishing can be very unpredictable. But even if this enigmatic fish proves illusive, you can be sure of an experience you won’t forget in a hurry. These are spate rivers, so water levels can rise quickly to make them unfishable. If we were to experience a ‘wash-off’, we’d arrange an alternative date to visit the river. Note: with it’s steep, slippery banks and difficult access points, the River Loughor can be a difficult river to fish (especially at night), so you’ll need a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy the session.

Seasons: 20th March to 15th October (River Loughor),
1st April to 15th October (River Towy).
