The Brocklerigg fishings are set amongst attractive woodland and pastoral land. It offers single bank fly water for four anglers with a number of swiftly flowing rocky pools, which hold good numbers of sea trout from May and salmon from the middle of August.
This beat has only been let on a commercial basis since 2006 and was historically held as private fishing by Castlemilk Estates or let out to an exclusive syndicate.
As a result reliable catch figures are not available as the fishing effort has always been very very low.
It is expected that this beat will quickly gain a reputation as one of the better beats on the river as it certainly has the potential. Extensive pruning has dramatically improved the fishing availability for 2007.
This beat has no ghillie however the farmer, Stanley Smith (07779 156662) or the syndicate leader, Howard Hickling (07739 611744) will be only too happy to give advice when available.
Howards syndicate only fishes vacant rods so there should never be more than 4 people fishing the beat at any one time.
