Hywel Morgan – Fly Casting

Fly Casting with Hywel Morgan

Hywel is the son of Welsh fishing guru Moc Morgan and was introduced to fishing at an exceptionally early age.

He first wet a line at just two and a half years of age and spent his early years fishing the Rivers Teifi and Ystwyth for wild brown trout and sea trout. Since then he has fished extensively throughout the UK, Europe, Australia and in the USA.

Having been successful in the Fly Casting scene, Hywel decided to return to fishing. He has represented Wales on twelve occasions (and has been captain for his country three times). Six times were at home internationals, where he was Top Rod on three occasions. The other six were at World Championships, where he captained the Welsh team to a silver medal in Ireland in 1995 and was a member of the silver medal winning team at England 2000. Individually he has been one of the most successful competitors from all the home countries, gaining results in silver, 4th, 7th and 10th places.

The Fly Casting demonstrations at this year’s West of England Game Fair will be presented by the Morgan Family. Lead by Hywel who needs little or no introduction to any angler helped by both his daughters Yasmin and Tanya. The demonstrations will show that fishing is fun and for the whole family.

He will also be available to chat to in the fishing area based in the Edmund Rack Pavilion

During his career Hywel has amassed a variety of titles including

  • World Class Accuracy Casting Champion
  • European Distance Casting Champion
  • 14 British casting records
  • 6 times All round British Champion
  • Over 100 British Individual titles
  • World record holder for multiple casting (66 rods cast simultaneously)
