A healthy walk through woods and open countryside brings you to this mile and a half stretch of the River Wey. Travelling light and adopting a catch and move approach has a double advantage here. Not only are you likely to catch extra fish, but you will also be able to appreciate more of this lovely little river in a session. .

Like the Society’s other stretch of the Wey listed here, members may fly-fish for trout in the appropriate season at no extra charge. (All trout to be returned to the water.)

Tackle and Tactics

Suitable for most river tactics, although the venue is largely shallow with fast shallow runs into deeper areas.

Fish the deeper areas and glides for consistent sport and check out the over hanging trees and rafts for the Chub.
