A huge welcome to you and thank you for visiting the fishing page of our website.

The Glanusk Fishery

The Glanusk Fishery has 3 beats – Below the Bridge, Above the Bridge and the Island Beat, (available on request for one rod).

“Many thanks for a wonderful day on your stretch of the Usk. I’m an Usk boy now living in England and my three chums from here in Berkshire had never fished the Usk before. They were smitten with its beauty and variety and when combined with the lovely parkland and the friendly reception it was the perfect recipe for a truly delightful day.” Mr G Smith


Salmon: £45.00 per rod, per day

Trout: £35.00 per rod, per day

Ghillies and guides are available on request, as is tuition.

As part of the on-going challenges facing the River Usk and it’s tributaries, the UFA which is the owners association, needs to have funds to protect and enhance the river and streams.

There are many challenges ahead and the UFA needs fishermen’s support.  With this in mind, the Glanusk Fishery will make a contribution from the daily fees to the UFA.

The UFA would also of course greatly appreciate all fishermen who fish the Usk and it’s tributaries becoming full members.  All details are available at



Please contact the Estate Office on 01873 810 414 or via to check availability and discuss any requirements you may have.

This has to be fishing’s best kept secret. Fabulous trout on the dry fly, a really good chance of a Salmon and all within easy driving distance from London. The Glanusk Estate near Crickhowell in Wales offers everything any fisher could want. We stayed in Glanusk Lodge where the pools of the renowned River Usk are all in walking distance within the beautiful private estate grounds – a luxury not often found. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed

With exceptional help from the Estate at every level it went extremely well and everyone was happy and delighted with our choice of venue.

It would be difficult to imagine more helpful hosts and staff. Thank you – we do appreciate it and look forward to seeing you again.

I fished Glanusk on Monday with a friend and I wanted to say thank you for an excellent day.

We received a very warm welcome when we checked in at the estate office. Having been slightly disorganised and left most of our flies behind, fly advice was given and the offer of spare flies was made. We were given a very useful map and the most likely pools were highlighted.

The river was in wonderful condition and is clearly expertly looked after. We fished most of the pools over the day and I had two large wild brownies on a small stoat’s tail including on of 2.5-3lbs at Bungalow rocks. With the last cast of the day my friend hooked a 15lb salmon also at Bungalow rocks. As it was landed, we both saw 2 otters playing in the pool from which the salmon came. It is hard to imagine a better ending to the day.

Many thanks and we look forward to coming back next year.

I know you are rightly proud of your superb home but you should also be extremely proud of the wonderfully high standards of hospitality you and “Team Glanusk” achieved
