Ammanford & District Angling Association was born back in 1927 when a group of local anglers realized the need to establish a club that would enable them to hold on to the water that was available at that time for the local population to enjoy. Had this not happened Ammanford Angling might not be enjoying the wonderful river we have today. We have some eight miles of fishing along the rivers Loughor and Amman stretching down stream from Llandybie to Hendrewen near Pontardulais. The club holds fly tying lessons throughout the winter.  Although renown as a Sea Trout river the Loughor was once a great Salmon water with many coracles working the lower reaches at Pontardulais with their catch to be sold at Swansea fish market. In recent years we have seen an improvement in water quality which  in turn has given rise to a boom in the otter population on the Loughor as well as the many other species like the darting kingfisher and dipper. Hopefully this in turn will follow on to the fish we strive to catch. Use our website at to keep in touch with what is happening on the river.

The Loughor, a gem of a river.
