Rhondda Cynon Taff

The Valleys of South Wales are known the world over for their culture, heritage and warmth of welcome. Rhondda Cynon Taf has a fascinating variety of places to explore, starting with the Brecon Beacons National Park that reaches into the north of the area The home of many different species and a huge variety of types and sizes of rivers, Rhondda Cynon Taf is also a great fishing holiday venue. Many anglers, old and young, return year after year to further explore the wealth of fishing opportunity this area has to offer. The tributary rivers Cynon and Dare roll down to the Taff here and both coarse and game angling can be had on the River Rhonnda from Treorchy to Trahafod.
