Welsh Fishing & Country Club
|Monnow Valley Fishery
is the place to come for your fishing holiday or
short fishing break. Located in Monmouth, South
Wales, its one mile of river is set amongst 400
acres of rolling hills and Welsh farmland. The
fishery offers coarse and fly fishing and the
chance to catch grayling, chub, trout and (since
autumn 2008) salmon.
This part of the River Monnow was a popular fishing retreat back in the 1950s, when the manor house ran as a Fishing and Country Club. It has not been available to the public to fish for decades until 2006 when new owners allowed access again. (Click here for photos of the old Country Club.)
With a good mixture of riffles and pools, the Monnow
has earned its reputation as one of Wales' best for
trout fly fishing, especially for dry
fly fishing in May and June, with the spectacular
mayfly hatches. The lower Monnow, with its slower
and deeper sections, also offers a wide range of
coarse species including chub and grayling.

We've been very busy at the fishery thanks to the great weather this week! We've also been levelling our field and will be providing a caravan site area this summer.
