Approximately 800m of right-hand single bank, with excellent brown trout fishing with a mixture of sweeping bends, large pools and faster, more challenging runs. The adjoining Milford beat is no longer available, but we think we have retained the best section? Hayne Bridge is brushy in places offering good cover for fish but generally more open in character than Milford. It is mentioned in Mike Weaver’s book ‘The Pursuit of Wild Trout’ where the author landed 82 trout in five hours. The beat is best fished with 2-5wt, 7-8ft rods and waders are advised. 14” of brown trout in West Devon is not to be sniffed at, get down there.
