Chain Pool and Bonwm Halt
One of the 'jewels in the crown' Chain Pool has consistently been high in the rankings as a CADAC Salmon beat. Trout and Grayling fishing is popular at times on this beat, however Salmon is by far the most popular quarry. Salmon are frequently caught on all methods however this beat is extremely popular with fly fishermen.
