  1. Anglers should ensure that, where the Club only has the right to fish one bank, they only cast away from that bank and do not turn round to fish back

towards the Club's bank. The only parts of the Clubs waters where we do have both banks is on the Irfon from the Larder Pool to the top boundary and on the Wye from the Aber Pool to to 40 yards below the main road bridge where the Tanhouse brook enters on the right bank.


Spinning for trout is strictly forbidden on any of the Clubs waters at any time.
