This beat combines excellent fishing on the most stunning location on the river. The river loops past the Eildon Hills in a beautiful wooded gorge giving fishers complete seclusion from the outside world. The stretch is one mile long, with two-thirds of it double bank fishing, and provides some most interesting quality fishing, with a pool or stream for every height of water.
There is an excellent hut with fully equipped kitchen and gas BBQ available for tenants use on the middle beat for all rods. There are four boats, two for fishing and two for ferrying from bank to bank. Access is by car down a private track to a small parking area about 100ft above the rod hut. From there the path is too steep for vehicles and you have to walk the remaining short distance.
From the 1st February to 17th September 2017 one ghillie is employed and four rods fish each day on a syndicate basis (Please contact us to be placed on the waiting list in
case anything arises) From the 18th September 2017, six rods are let on a daily basis with two ghillies provided. During this period, the beat is split into three, with
rods fishing in pairs and rotating on an am/pm basis.
Please note that because of the steep banks you should be a reasonable walker and wader to fish this beat.
