Garramarsh on the Mole comprises 800m of single bank, with four main pools with a mix of glides and riffles. The larger pools are likely to offer the chance of a salmon or day time sea trout following a spate. In times of lower water it should provide good brown trout fishing. Wild Brownies up to a whooping 2lb 4oz have been landed on this beat.
