A bright sunny day with water level low - though not excessively so. Monty was extremely helpful in suggesting the best swim and a decent barbel first cast was indicative of a good day in prospect. However, this proved a bit deceptive as it was hard going from then on. Five chub all around 4 pounds before lunch (mainly on flavoured meat)kept the spirits up, but after lunch interest dropped off completely with only a couple of eels to show for the last 4-5 hours. The evening may have brought an upturn, but we'd had enough by then. A bit more colour in the water and a bit less sun was needed - or maybe better fishermen?

5 Chub, 2 Other

A lovely stretch of the Wye; we fished the lowest part of the beat. The river keeper was very helpful with advice, but unfortunately it was a really hot sunny day with no cloud cover which conspired against us. We did see 4 salmon and there are undoubtedly good sized barbel here.

First visit here so spent some time walking the beat. After appreciating what a well kept fishery this is, we settled in to a couple of swims. However this turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far and by midday the temperature was about 30 degrees plus. A couple of barbel and one chub were caught early on but from around 11.45 it was apparent that the fish were seeking cooler darker water!! So we decided to leave and seek a cool beer.
Our thanks to Monty and Tom who kindly shared their knowledge of the fishery and advised of the best pegs. We are due to return in September when hopefully the weather will be little cooler and we can make use of that information.

All fish caught on feeder or straight lead using boilies on the hook. Fed a lot of hemp, pellet and boilie to keep the fish interested.
The owner of the beat Monty came down and was a really nice and helpful chap. He put us both right on the pegs to fish and where in the swims to cast.
This is a super beat with really good access to all pegs and a range of different water types to suit any river and weather conditions.

Had a slow start put picked up after a few moves. Pellet feeder the main producer. River started to fall but still running high. Many thanks to Monty for his help and great to see the work he is doing to the swims will make this stretch even better. Thank you WUF.

A well maintained fishery with accessible swims and helpful advice of the fishery manager 'Monty' who gave good advice on the place. River was in great shape, bit of a push and a nice chocolate colour , weather conds. were ideal, overcast and not too windy. I was fishing with a friend KW and between us we landed 11 Barbel and 31 chub , Barbel to 10.5lb and chub up to 5lb all on feeder tactics. Caught throughout the day. The only negative was the farmer with the fields on the opposite bank directly across from us decided to set up an abstraction generator and pump which rather ruined the tranquillity (but not the fishing) ... but it was a minor blemish on a good day's fishing.

Good clear instructions on how to get to the river and only for a 4x4. Parking adjacent to the river. A lot of swims were overgrown and inaccessible but those down from the fishing hut were ok. I did have a pontoon collapse on me however and I would urge that the condition of these are checked for safety purposes. Thankfully there were two of us or I would have been in trouble so I urge caution.
Fishing was very good, two of us using ledgered pellet/swimfeeder. Best Barbel touched 12 lbs and chub to 6lbs. Caught steadily through day. Swims are hidden from canoeists so they done see you until they are on top of you. They were however polite and apologetic, that's the advantage of fishing midweek out of school holidays.
Swims we fished were relatively snag free and there was obviously a good head of fish within the area. Great days fishing and we will return.

In view of the appalling weather on the glorious 16th and the torrential downpour that evening, we took the decision not to fish, we are not suggesting that it was unfishable, but it would have been difficult, we will book another session at this lovely venue.
