The Fishing Passport: River Lugg (Pilleth)

The Pilleth Beat is a 1½ mile section of upland stream, set in the hills of the Radnor Forest. This was the site of Owain Glyndwr’s famous victory over the English army of Sir Edmund Mortimer in 1402. The battlefield is said to be on the slopes of Bryn Glas, immediately to the north of the river.

Double bank fishing throughout, the silt and gravel riverbed makes for relatively easy wading. The size of the stream requires some accurate casting into tight areas but overall the beat provides some stunning small river trout fishing that will rival any other in the Passport scheme.

Ideally fished with a 6½-7½ft, 2 to 4wt rod.
