Cellan fishery (Beat 2)

Summer fishing at Cellan
Trout fishing at Cellan

At Cellan we have a very good trout fishing beat. Mature trees shade the river in many places, and there are stretches where the river races swiftly, making dry fly fishing  challenging but often rewarding.

Here at Cellan, you are in Kite's Country. That was the name of a TV programme in the 1960s, when the late Oliver Kite used to show viewers how to catch wild brown trout. The Teifi was his favourite venue for fishing during the March Brown hatch.

Beat 2, the Cellan fishery, comprises a mile and a half of fishing, some being on the right ban, some on the left bank, and, over two short stretches, some being double-bank fishing. We purchased the fishing rights to the Cellan beat in September 1978.
