1,000m of mixed banks on the Ottery & 700m of RHB on the Tamar. Located not far from Netherbridge, a number of anglers have realised that this beat is a cracker. Trout season runs from 15 March to 30 September and Salmon 1 March to 14 October, Grayling can be fished until 14 October. It offers lovely trout fishing, especially during the Mayfly season. The Ottery above the bridge offers the chance of a sea trout with the first peal likely to arrive in late June; they have been caught on dry fly and nymph by day. It is one of three beats available on the Ottery but it also provides a nice section on the main river itself.
