This looks like a fish-holding swim: just below a small, high weir, there is a retaining wall off the main flow, with a back eddy. By lowering my grub straight down, into water that is 2 ft deep, I have hooked eight perch in eight drops. Amazing sport! It is a great place for beginners to gain confidence before tackling snaggier swims.
I had hoped to catch a chub or a pike for the cameras, but I am happy enough catching perch. I’ve now caught 23 of them, and I’ve only been fishing for two hours.
I have worked my way from the road bridge to the weir, and will now swap banks, working my way back down the stream before calling it a day.
