News 2015


We would like to wish all our members A Happy New Year and tight lines for the 2015 season.

Our first event this year is our AGM which this year takes place at  Cross Hands Working Mens club on Thursday 29th January.
All members are welcome to attend the meeting and the agenda can be viewed by clicking on the link below.

Following requests from members on how they go about fishing the Groe Park and Irfon Angling Club waters, we have added details of this on to the website. This can be accessed by clicking on the  Waters button and then clicking on the Wye button.

Finally we would like to ask all our members who are on Facebook to like our Cross Hands and District Angling page so that they can get instant notifications to their phones and Internet devices.


With  the new season close to starting we have got some more interesting news for our members, in that we are leasing another stretch of water in Carmarthen, which again is tidal and is directly above our existing tidal beat.
The Carmarthen Beat map has been updated to include this.
Members are reminded that these beats being tidal are liable to flooding and when fishing these, caution should be taken at all times.

We have some good news for our Junior Members in that we have raised the qualifying age from 16 to 18 years of age. 
Also for juniors who are still in secondary education after the age of 18, this will apply to them until they leave school.
This will be introduced next year on our renewal date.


With the season almost coming to a end, there are reports of many fish being caught on our waters.
A lot of these catches have been reported on our Facebook page, so make sure that you go onto it and like it, in order to get all the updated reports.

For those of you who are not on Facebook, here are photos of some of the fish that have been caught.

The top 2 fish were caught by Mike Morgan and the bottom fish weighing 17lb was caught by Kevin Bolton on fly

We would like to thank all members who have reported fish that were caught on our Typicca beat, which is compulsory for our agreement with the fishery owner.
It is most important that we continue to do this in order to please the fishery owner.
Please inform Gavin Davies or Pat Kiernan by e mail or phone providing the required information.

We would like to remind members that once the season has finished, that they get their completed catch return forms off to Gavin Davies as soon as possible in order that we have the full figures for our AGM. The deadline for this is 1st December.

Finally we would like to report that a walking stick was found on our Glantowy beat on July 28th. This information was posted on our Facebook page but no-one has come forward and claimed it so far. The member who found it thought it was left behind by a member who came from the Llandysul area, who originated from Yorkshire.
Would the owner please contact Pat Kiernan (Secretary) for its return.
