The Fishing Passport: River Honddu (Usk)

Not to be confused with the Monnow tributary, this Honddu begins life at Blaenhonddu on the Eppynt, a mountain dividing the Brecon Beacons and the Cambrian Mountains, flowing in a southerly direction to join the Usk at Brecon, or Aberhonddu. The river’s name derives from the Welsh for easy, happy or pleasant, an appropriate description for this picturesque trout stream.

The beat offers over 1¼ miles of quality Usk tributary fishing, which is all right bank only. Trout on this beat average 10 to 12 inches, although fish to 1.5lb are present.

The beat is ideally fished with a 6.5 to 7.5ft, 2 to 3wt rod.
