Four miles of opportunity
Fishing: Despite its upper river location, fresh fish run into and through Waterside and Ferrar even in low water. Up to four rods may fish the four-mile beat, the water easily covered with a 13-footer. In low water, a switch rod or singlehander is ample. The beat is fly only, catch-and-release. Typical flies are Stoat’s Tails, Crathies and Editors. A gillie is available.
