We offer guided fishing for sea trout (sewin) on the River Teifi and Towy as part of a package or as an individual, standalone service. Night fishing can be tricky and is an art, so let Steffan or one of his guides lead the way and show you what this magical angle of the sport has to offer.
LOCATION: We offer guided days and nights on both the rivers Teifi and Towy, and have done for numerous seasons. We cover a wide range of waters on both rivers, with some guides knowing particular waters or beats better than others – they will be allocated according to your chosen waters. We also guide and have extensive knowledge of private beats on the Towy, such as Abercothi and Golden-Grove; we can arrange the fishing and guiding on these waters for you accordingly. The fishing on the River Teifi will be on Llandysul Angling Association, which has access to some 30 miles of the river, including most of the prime stretches.
INCLUSIONS & TERMS: We have a strict no-alcohol rule on the riverbank. We will not take anglers night fishing if they are or appear to be inebriated; this is for their own safety and in respect to the guides. Guides can offer a transfer service to/from your accommodation if required – this does not incur an additional cost. You do, however, travel in the guide’s vehicle at your own risk.
We provide and offer safety equipment (by prior request) free of charge to our clients on guided nights, which includes; wading staffs, safety whistles, safety glasses, automatic lifejackets. Please note your requirements in advance.
Guides can offer flies, but losses above an abnormal amount are to be covered, as specified by the guide. We can also offer suitable selections prior to your arrival, which are well received and popular requests.
SCHEDULE: Typically the guides will come to meet you at your accommodation or at a prearranged location. The meet up time will vary according to the time of the season and your package. As a rule, the guide will be with you for a 5 hour period (from meet up time to the departure time) and the meet-up time is usually some 2 hours or so before darkness falls. Meet-up time is usually around 8pm, fishing through until 1am. The end of the fishing session is 1am, unless the client draws a close sooner. Guided sessions may continue beyond 1am, but this is at the discretion of the guide – arrangements can be made/discussed with the guide directly.
COSTS: Daytime sessions are via prior arrangement and usually limited to weekends; please make contact to discuss your requirements. Night-time sessions on both the Teifi and Towy are charged as follows:
1 person: £120
2 people: £180 (£90 each)
3 people: £240 (£80 each)
