The source of the river Loughor is an underground lake at the Black Mountain and emerges at the surface from Llygad Llwchwr which translates as “eye of the Loughor”. Rising out of limestone, the river flows past Ammanford and Hendy in Carmarthenshire and Pontarddulais in Swansea, dividing Carmarthenshire from Swansea for much of its course.

Known for its large sewin and late season salmon, is a relatively short river with a huge estuary. With its narrow and winding banks, the Loughor is a more demanding river to fish at night than the Towy and Teifi. It can, however, produce spectacular results: the best sewin in 2013 weighed 13 pounds. This river is another one of Wales’s hidden gems.
