Description

2/3 of a mile of double bank fishing on the river Wye a few miles downstream of Hereford. This secluded stretch offers some excellent salmon fishing as well as coarse fishing for the usual species that inhabit the middle river. A mixture of wadable, streamy water and gentle glides over gravel at the top end leading to deep, slow pools, the beat has sections suitable for various methods, including trotting for dace and chub. The slow, deeper sections will also be good winter piking spots.

Access along the bank is good but by foot only so anglers are advised to travel light. The banks are steep in places although there are plenty of spots to access the water.
