1.1km of double bank and 400m of single bank of classic middle Usk fishing just upstream from the bridge in Crickhowell. The beat is comprised of 3 main pools, each with a turbulent head running under trees before smoothing into delicious long glides. Perfect for Usk trout fishing. The 3 pools are all worth a cast for a salmon, even in lowish water, so this beat is perfect for a day spent salmon fishing when the trout aren’t rising and trout fishing when they are.

All bookings have to be run past the fishery owner before they can be accepted. Please bear this in mind if you are planning a last minute booking. It may be up to 24 hours before an answer is obtained.
