The Tanycoed Fishery offers something for everyone. The stretch opposite our car park provides good trout fishing and, because the banks are clear and low, it is ideal for beginners learning to cast.

The lower three hundred yards of the beat holds sea trout all through the season, as do the pools toward the top of the fishery.

For salmon fishers, there are few pools on the Teifi that can challenge Pwll Du (Black Pool), just downstream from Tan-y-coed Farmhouse.


Beat 14a, comprising two miles of single-bank fishing on the left (Carmarthenshire) bank of the Teifi between Pentrecwrt and Llandysul, was purchased in May 1995.

Access and Parking

The access stile

There is a single access point to this beat from our private car park beside the A486 Pentrecwrt to Llandysul road. Opposite the gate to the car park is a stile bearing a Llandysul AA orange sign.

After crossing the stile, go directly across the field to the river bank. From there, please keep to the bank and do not cut across fields to avoid walking round meanders in the river course. (We agreed this restricted access in return for the private car park off the main road.)


The fishing between the two stiles at either end of the woods at Pwll Du (Black Pool) is subject to the "odd and even" rule. Members/visitors with odd numbered tickets may fish there only from 12 noon on odd numbered days of the month until 12 noon the next day; even ticket holders have access on even numbered days.

Beat limits

Orange Llandysul A A end-of-beat signs mark the upper and lower limits of the fishery.
