Top Ten Trout Streams in the United Kingdom

Freestone Rivers: The Teifi, Wales
By Brian Clarke

The Teifi rises in the Cambrian mountains and is one of the U.K.'s finest and most prolific game-fishing rivers. Salmon are commonplace. Its resident wild browns are not large but they are plentiful; two-pound fish turn up and fish up to four-plus pounds are taken every year. There are some heavy hatches of fly. The fishing for sea-run browns is spectacular. A reasonable year's run will contain around 20,000 fish with an average weight of over four pounds. The 4,000 fish typically falling to rods average between two and three pounds. Fly methods as described above. Good base: Cardigan.
