Approximately 1.7 miles of mostly double bank river Lugg winter grayling fishing just downstream of Mortimers Cross. This part of the Lugg gently meanders through the scenic Herefordshire countryside. The beat provides some excellent autumn/winter grayling fishing on a medium-sized river and is relatively easy wading in all but the highest flows on a mostly gravel and silt riverbed.

The majority of the upper section of river is very open and has hardly has a tree on it. Anglers can fish this without worry of snagging the back cast, using longer rods (8 – 10ft) more suitable to deep nymphing. The Lower section is much more overgrown and is more suitable for 7 to 8 foot rods.

Midland Flyfishers, who own the fishing, are not insured for unaccompanied guests fishing their waters. Anglers using this beat should ensure that they are adequately insured for any injury or loss and are suitably experienced to fish these waters in winter conditions.
