While we patiently await guidance on the timescale for the ‘new normal’ which will allow us to safely welcome guests from further afield, we have been busy at the beat since the initial easing of restrictions three weeks ago.

The ongoing circumstances have created a delightful irony – the beat has never been this lightly fished, and yet this is a record breaking June for us with ten fish landed up to 22 pounds!

If you’re counting the hours till your return to the riverbank, we hope the thought of landing a fish like this 16lb beauty, taken directly in front of the lodge last week, whets your appetite !
