Just over ½ mile of double bank fishing located a few miles upstream of Ross. This section of the Wye is deep and slow, with numerous swims from which to target the barbel and chub, including the old salmon croys. The water also holds good numbers of pike and some large river carp. Grayling, dace and roach are also present.

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. For coarse anglers, this section holds a good head of barbel and chub.

A party of 4 anglers known to each another is allowed by telephone booking only. Parties of 3 or 3 individuals take the beat. Please note that there is enough parking space for a maximum of 3 vehicles.
