National Resources Wales has introduced a new telephone number for any one to report incidents of pollution or poaching, the old 0800 number will continue to work for some time yet. The number is…………….. 03000653000 if you see a pollution incident please take a photograph with your phone it may be needed to prove the incident took place.
The following report was sent in by Dave Brittian who fished the Mardy beat last weekend (25/26 June)
Migratory fish catch for the last 10 years mardy 10 yr catch
In order to fish the Mardy Fishery for salmon, trout or coarse fish it is necessary to book in advance for the fishing. Ring either of the numbers below
- Tony Rees – 01685 723 520
- Nigel Morgan – 01685 377 848
In case of pollution call 0800 80 70 60 and give one of these locations:
Entrance to Mardy SO 2573 1589, Mardy Farm SO 2621 1517, Sewerage Works SO 2626 1475, Outlet from Works SO 640 1475, Bottom of Beat SO 269 147
The Mardy fishery is situated above Abergavenny town and access to it is immediately off the A40 between Abergavenny and Crickhowell. This access is alongside the main road and is approximately half a mile from Pyscodlyn Farm (caravan sign) travelling towards Crickhowell.
Parking in immediately adjacent to the gateway which is signposted Merthyr Tydfil Angling Association. Do not block the gateway; do not park on the main road. When fishing at this beat, all anglers are to pull their cars as close to the bush as possible, leaving a suitable walkway for pedestrians.
One of the reasons we retain the booking system is that we are being increasingly asked to supply data on the use of our waters. Some of this data could be valuable in making claims for pollution, etc.
