Where individual beats are taken on a day rod basis, Beats 1 and 2 will change over at 1.30pm each day and similarly Beats 3 and 4. If a pair of beats (1 & 2 or 3 & 4) is taken then two rods can fish together and move freely between the beats throughout the day.
In order to retain important local connections and knowledge, a local Angling Club, with limited membership, also has access to the water and have fished the water for several years; they are well run and share the same strict codes of conduct, as well as often offering to support and help with Ghillying.
Substantial improvements to access, amenities (benches and huts) and to bank management are ongoing and will continue to be an important feature of the Operational Management, in the capable hands of Andrew Jackson, who is also available to Ghillie, by separate arrangement.
