Cross Hands and District Angling Association

Cross Hands and District Angling Association control some 12 miles of salmon, sea trout (sewin) and trout fishing on the Towy, Cothi and Teifi rivers. Most of the waters are on the Towy and Cothi. Formed from the Cross Hands Workingmen Club, Cross Hands and District Angling Association is still based from this institution, where it continues to hold its monthly committee and AGM meetings.

Cross Hands and District Angling Association was formed some 50 years ago by retired miners who used their redundancy monies to buy and rent salmon fishing on the Towy.


The club is constituted to provide salmon, sewin and trout fishing at the cheapest possible rates. Waters stretch from Llangadog (Abermarlais Waters) towards the top of the system, to the Pump House beat just off the tide below Capel Dewi. 

The old beat 5 of the Golden Grove fishery, Glantowy waters (layby beat) and the Llwynfortune (Dai Boots beat) are our middle beats.

On the Cothi there are the Glancothi Waters at The Cresselly Arms, the Dyffryn Uchaf waters above Yniswen bridges and Cwmcothi water.

The Teifi can also be fished at Brynteifi Waters for 2 miles single bank at Pentracwrt from Allt y Cafan bridge through Cwmisdwr farm.
