This fishery comprises of around 2½ miles of double bank salmon and coarse fishing a couple of miles upstream of Monmouth. Flowing through a picturesque gorge, it has vehicle access along the entire length of the left bank via an old railway line.

It is of mixed wading difficulty, with some great fly and spinning water and including the famous Martins Pool, an historic mid/lower Wye salmon catch. The beat has more than 20 salmon lies and pools in total. Note : The owner reserves the right to fish the beat although this should not affect your fishing.

Exclusivity at this beat is not guaranteed. There is a small membership that may fish from time to time - this membership has access to several other fisheries and is made up predominantly of locals who fish evenings and weekends.


Please be aware that during school holidays, bank holidays and summer weekends especially, this fishery is in a busy part of the Wye and the number of other river users will be at its maximum. It is worth concentrating your fishing early morning and evening during these periods. Please contact us on 01874 712 074 before booking should you have any queries about this.
