The Lower Longtown beat comprises 2/3 mile of mostly double bank fishing. Watch out for the pool where the Escley Brook joins the Monnow towards the top end of the beat - there are quite a few dark shadows loitering in the depths.

The beat is ideally fished with a 6½ to 8ft, 2 to 4wt rod.

IMPORTANT : Anglers booking this stretch should be aware that native crayfish are present and as always, good biosecurity measures are essential. If any anglers spot any dead crayfish please report immediately to the Environment Agency incident hotline number 0800 80 70 60.
