Just over 1 mile of left bank fishing a few miles above Hereford. This is an exceptional example of middle river Wye fishing containing all the favourite species. The top part of the fishery is characterised by fast flows over a gravel riverbed, with deep gullies at the margins; perfect habitat for barbel and the huge shoals of chub that inhabit this part of the river.
Stout tackle is recommended as they are often found to specimen size. The lower/middle part of the fishery is deeper and slower and provides likely areas to fish in higher flows. Other species include roach and dace, with the pike that prey on them lurking in the deeper, lower section of the beat.
This fishery will accommodate a variety of tactics but most appeal should be for the roving coarse angler, where even a full day may not be enough to explore all the likely spots.
Wading is easy over the mostly gravel riverbed, although felt soles are recommended. Parking and access to the fishery is excellent. There is a choice of two parking spots at the bottom of the fishery with a short walk to the river or vehicle access directly to the bank for the upper half of the fishery (4x4 only during the winter months).
Block Booking is availble on this beat. You can book all the tickets available (sometimes at a discounted price). You can only fish up to the maximum daily number of people allowed for that type of fishing.
