The Wharf Fishery - Fishing in Wales

The Wharf Fishery

Bute East Dock (affectionately known as The Wharf), was opened in 1859 and was in-use until 1970. In the 1980’s, redevelopment of the area brought various housing developments and businesses including The Cardiff Council Headquarters which looks directly over the dock.

In 2018, The Wharf Fishery (formerly the Wharf Angling Club) gained long term fishing rights to The Wharf and has invested a great deal of time improving not just the Fishery but also the surrounding area.

Originally we set out to change the status quo of Welsh Carp fishing, and we are now seeing more and more anglers travelling here to fish from England.

Today we are home to Wales’ largest Carp known as Ebenhaezer, which last time out weighed a whopping 47lb 2oz. The originals and stockies are packing on the weight and have made this famous urban venue a very exciting place to cast a line.

The Wharf is a syndicate, click here for details of how to join.
