Many anglers prefer to secure their fishing for the season, safe in the knowledge that they are guaranteed fishing on a beat of their choice. Traditionally, season rods have been for a named day per week and many Wye and Usk fisheries still operate on this basis. New, more flexible systems are becoming more common, however.

For details of season rods on specific fisheries, please see the links below.

River Wye

GromainGromain & Upper Llanstephan; Llangoed & Lower Llanstephan; The Rectory

These three beats are let to a 'pool' of season rods. Because the salmon fishing is dependent on good flows on the upper river, season rods can then fish on each and every day of the week to ensure they do not miss ideal conditions. It is possible to take a day per week but the preference of most fishers is to join the season rod pool. Rods book their day and beats in advance or on the day with the Booking office. It is never overfished and in all, over 3.5 miles with 34 pools are available with some of the best fly fishing on the river. There is some excellent trout and grayling fishing for those interested.

Approximately 2miles of double and 1 mile of single bank fishing on the River Irfon at Llanynis some 4 miles from the confluence with the Wye and 3 miles from Builth Wells. The beat averages 30 yards in width and has an excellent variety of water. The wading difficulty also varies - relatively easy in the gravel sections but more difficult over the bedrock.
Cefnllysgwynne offers good trout and excellent grayling fishing, with the possibility of occasional salmon later in the season (The Salmon season ends on 25th October on this river). The Irfon rises and falls quickly after heavy rain, usually being fishable within 24 - 36 hours of a flood.

Season rods are flexible and not tied to one day per week. Season rod holders must be aware that day ticket anglers may also be booked onto the water.

The Tyr Afon, Fro Isaf and Bryn beats in the middle reaches of the River Usk constitute some of the finest fishing on this famous Welsh river. In beautiful and varied scenery, the fishing extends to 2 miles and the rights to fish are mostly from both banks. The estate lets out three trout and salmon beats on a seasonal basis. The rights to fish are mostly from both banks. The beats provide interesting and varied salmon and trout water in delightful surroundings. The Usk is noted as an early season river for wild brown trout with the occasional sea trout (although the latter are rarely targeted). In most years the occasional salmon will have taken up residence at Llanover in March although the best of the salmon fishing is from April onwards. The banks have easy access and as this part of the river flows mostly over gravel, the wading is relatively easy. Llanover also has a resident ghillie on hand to advise. The river is a notified Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and European Special Area of Conservation (SAC).
