Just under 1 mile of mostly left bank fishing on the upper Wye, a few miles downstream of Builth Wells. Abernant offers the salmon anglers two excellent high water salmon pools: Lady Alexander’s Catch and Abernant Stream. The Edw Pool and Stone Catch are well worth a cast too. Abernant also holds good numbers of trout and grayling and for the coarse anglers some sizeable chub and dace.

The riverbed is a mostly gravel so wading is relatively easy for an upper Wye beat. The Stone Catch and Edw Pool are more boulders and bedrock so wading is difficult in places there. Chest waders are required to get the best out of the fishing, with stud or stud/felt soles mandatory.

There is a 200m (218 yard) walk from the parking spot to the mid section of the river.

The owner reserves the right to also fish so exclusivity, though generally the case, cannot be guaranteed.

Half price evening tickets can be purchased from 1st May and after 1pm on the day of fishing. Fishing is allowed from 5pm.

Season rods are available on this beat.

Junior tickets are applicable for children between the ages of 12-17 and are only purchasable by adults (i.e. over 18's).Juniors must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.
