Work Party February 2017
A successful work party took place on the lower waters on February 18th 2017. The right bank was cleared to allow fishing access from the boulders pool upstream to the junction pool. This is a very productive stretch and with renewed accessibility it should provide good sport for the coming season.
A new stile and platform was also created to allow easier access to the above water. However one step forward one step back, or down, as the bridge to the cleared bank saw Vince Rees fall through it! Another job to be undertaken.
The new stile is in the field to the right of the access stile on the Llangadog Road A4069. If entering this field please make sure you keep to the edges of the field.
After 40 years of dedication and hard work Mike Davies has decided it is time to relinquish his roll as club secretary. The committee would like to extend their gratitude to Mike for his outstanding contribution to Llandovery Angling Association. Mike will continue to be a Life Member of the Club and a fellow committee member. We look forward to seeing him on the river on a regular basis.
Mike Hill will take up the reigns with immediate effect as the new sec. and any correspondense should be directed to
LLandovery 1st Cubs Fishing Day

Members Work Party 2014
A very successful morning was enjoyed by members on the Towey on Saturday. Clearing and reparation was carried out below the railway bridge. Fly fishing and spinniing will now be considerably easier after the work. Further down stream clearance work means the navigation of the bank is much improved. A number of stiles were also overhauled and repaired.
Thank you to all who attended, Dave, Mike, Vince, Stewart, Adrian, Gareth, Alan, and Mike. Also a big thank you to Chippo for a lovely lunch.
The river looked in splendid condition running fast and clear and with reports of good fishing downstream we are hoping for a prolific season.
