About Beat 30: Boldford Bridge

With 1000m of single right hand bank, this is a nice section of the Carey which is the upper and most popular of the two Carey beats. It comprises small riffle sections and some deep pools and runs, offering good dry fly and nymph fishing. Best fished from within the river using 7ft, 3-4wt fly rods. Catches on the Carey beats continue to steadily improve with reports of good mayfly hatches over the past few seasons.
