Netpool, Llandudoch/St Dogmaels
This is the name for the Afon Teifi here as it flows down from Cardigan to the sea a few kilometres further north.

"The waterway was the main source of employment for the village of St.Dogmaels. Herring fishing was very important from the Middle Ages to the mid-18th century and continued until 1914, salted herrings being exported to Ireland and Spain.
In summer, salmon fishing took place using Seine nets. Circa 1884 there were 21 fishing boats operating. Numbered stones were drawn at the Netpool before each tide to establish the order which the pools were to be fished. There were a number of well-known salmon pools, but because of silting, most have virtually disappeared. There are four licences now available but only one boat actually fishing. It was early in the 20th century that the last Seine fishing boats were built in St. Dogmaels."
