Welcome to the 2019 newsletter for Cymdeithas Pysgota Llandeilo Angling Association. We are looking forward to a good season, which should be better than the last one and hope all permit holders enjoy access to our waters.
Please ensure the following:
125 years celebration of the Association.
The Association held a dinner in November 2018 to celebrate it’s 125th anniversary. Held at the Plough Inn Llandeilo the evening was a huge success and all present thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We are issuing every permit holder with a badge to commemorate the achievement.
The work on clearing the Balsam on the riverbank is ongoing in conjunction with the C F F.
New Access point
We have leased a new access point to the river at Llandeilo bridge. This access is a set of steps located on the Right Hand Bank ( looking downstream) immediately downstream of the main road bridge, there is a locked gate at this position and the code for the lock will be issued with your permit. This is an access to the water upstream of the bridge. The pool below the bridge is for juniors and O A P’s from Llandeilo Town and Ffairfach village only.
The Management Council Members have begun walking the whole of our water and are collecting plastic items and rubbish as they do it. A substantial amount of waste has already been disposed of and they have only done as far as the Down Water. The river bank will be cleaned as they move on downstream so please do not leave any litter on the river bank when you are fishing.

Junior tickets can be purchased from Price News Rhosmaen Street, for those who are under 16 years of age the cost is £1 per season. 16 to 18 year old tickets are also available and cost £15 per season. Adult Day and Weekly permits can also be purchased there.
