The River Teifi forms the boundary between the counties of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire in south-west Wales for most of its 75 mile before flowing into the sea below the town of Cardigan. <br><br>At Newcastle Emlyn the river divides not only the counties but also the town of Newcastle Emlyn from the community of Adpar on the north bank of the river. <br><br> The Teifi has its source in Llyn Teifi, one of several lakes known collectively as the Teifi Pools. These are situated towards the north of the county of Ceredigion. The river flows past Strata Florida Abbey and then through Pontrhydfendigaid before reaching the main river valley floor. The Teifi meanders generally south-west in a gentle arc, passing through the towns and villages of Tregaron, Llanddewi Brefi, Cwmann, Lampeter, Llanybydder, Llandysul, before reaching Newcastle Emlyn and Adpar. <br><br> A few miles to the west of Newcastle Emlyn are the famous Cenarth Falls (where the Teifi tumbles over attractive waterfalls), and the Cenarth Mill (part of the National Coracle Centre). <br><br> The Teifi is a fine salmon river and is arguably the best mixed game fish river in England and Wales. Sea trout approaching 10lbs. and salmon approaching 20lbs or more can be caught in the Afon Teifi.
