Just under ½ mile of double bank fishing located a few miles upstream of Ross.

At the upper end of the fishery the river quickens as it slides around a big right turn. Here is The Monument, a very popular spot for coarse fishermen, which has open banks and easy access through Backney Common. Wading is also possible here for those wanting to trot and in addition to the barbel and chub, grayling, trout, dace and roach are also present. The Bridge Pool at the bottom end of the beat is deeper and slower but is also a good spot for barbel and chub. Access to the entire length of this fishery is good although bankside vegetation in the summer months can become challenging, as is the case on most Wye fisheries. Although the fishing is double bank, access is via the right (north) bank only.
