First time on this beat and looks very nice indeed. I had two fish but below the second croy after the hut.

J. L. from Bedfordshire, Thursday 21 August, 2014

Area: Lugg & Arrow
Beat: Arrow Titley (Wild Stream), Fishing Type: Trout, No. Anglers: 1

Fished from 8-11am. Stream running clear with some of the pools almost still. A beautiful stream with multiple pools and riffles. Fishing was challenging with a seeming lower fish density than in other wild stream beats.

Two sizeable trout were spotted, one tucked up very nicely in a fallen tree the other I spooked from the tail end of one of the faster pools. The trout caught were all about the 8 in mark. 3 to a GRHE and 3 to a PTN. The 3 to the GRHE all came from one pool. Two salmon par also came to hand.

Presenting the nymphs in the slower water was tricky. I would imagine this beat would fish much better later in the day when the trout are looking up more or during a hatch as many areas are well suited to the dry.

6 Trout, 2 Other

Area: Upper Wye
Beat: Craig Llyn (Booking Office), Fishing Type: Trout, No. Anglers: 1

A beautiful stretch of river with some lovely pools. Had some some nice trout and grayling up to a pound and also dropped a few nice ones. Fished New Zealand style and had the majority of the fish on the dry fly. Well worth a visit to this beat. You definitely need either felt or studied soles though to get the best out of this stretch. Fished all the named pools twice and had fish from them each time. Finished the day off watching an otter in one of the top pools.

6 Trout, 6 Grayling

J. E. from Kingston Upon Thames, Thursday 21 August, 2014

Area: Lower Wye
Beat: Bideford Brook (Wild Stream), Fishing Type: Trout, No. Anglers: 1

Overcast and chilly but recent rain had put some babble in this brook. Simple wading but for the most part under canopy and I was thankful for my little 6'6" brook rod allowing a cast in some pretty tight places.

A trickle of small and medium olives encouraged sporadic rises. Stubbornly stuck to dries (CDC emerger for the meanders and para adams for the riffles) and was rewarded with 12 wbt, for the most part 4"-7" but one chubby 10"er, it's fins trimmed with a striking flash of red.

This beat provides 3 to 4 hours of stealthy fishing and would be enjoyed by anglers who enjoy tight casting with small tackle at modestly sized wbt. I loved it and will return.

12 Trout

6 Chub to 5.5lbs, a PB for me. No barbel. I think the otter which paid me a visit scared them away. Thanks to Terry for the advice.

6 Chub

This is the worst beat we have fished in 7 years of fishing the Wye. Bad walking with very few fishable pegs.
