Hendwr

Hendwr

This is a popular upriver CADAC beat and like several of the other upper stretches the variety of water suits all methods of angling. This is excellent fly water for Salmon, Trout and Grayling anglers. The beat consists of slower deeper water, fast riffles and glides and although the wading is easy here, members are advised to be cautious in the areas of deeper water.

This is a popular beat with Salmon anglers during the latter weeks of the season.
