Beat 7: Blue Fox Glade

Little Dart


About Beat 7: Blue Fox Glade

This is a secluded stretch of about 1200m of left hand single bank with a nice mix of riffles, runs and some lovely big pools. Trout fishing with a chance of a sea trout or possibly a salmon, given good water. Usually lightly fished, possibly due to the walk to access the water, this beat remains productive to the few anglers who fish it regularly, often producing a really decent stamp of brown trout. Plenty of fish in the 10” range for those that give it a go.
