Important information on River Cothi Fishing for this year

As some of you will be aware that at the AGM it was mentioned that the Upton Hall waters were under new ownership and that we were trying to negotiate a new lease with the new owner.
I can now inform you that we have been successful in retaining these waters and that our fishing is the same as last year.(See Dyffryn Uchaf map).
The new owner has also agreed to provide us with an additional car park which will be situated closer to the bottom of the beat.
More information will be given on this, once it has been completed.
For those of you who have had information sent to you from our membership secretary Gavin Davies stating that we cannot fish these waters, please ignore, as this was sent out prior to the agreement being reached.
