The River Monnow at Longtown offers classic upland fly fishing set against the jagged backdrop of the Black Mountains. Fly hatches on this medium to small sized stretch of the river can be spectacular, including the mayflies of late spring and early summer. Wild brown trout are plentiful, averaging 10”/11” but with more than several fish of over 1lb caught each season.

The Upper Beat is just under a mile of mixed single and double bank fishing. Peering over the bridge that marks the start, the Monnow looks a relatively small stream here. Yet this stretch has some very deep, tempting pools that hold many good sized trout and the occasional grayling.

The beat is ideally fished with a 6.5 to 8ft, 2 to 4wt rod.
