A small river where mobility is the key to success, particularly where chub are concerned. There is a mile of river on the Somerset Bridge section. These are seldom busy stretches of the Wey
A mobile style of fishing is suggested for this small river. Chub are the predominant species and average from 2lb to over 4lb Pike up to 20lb, Dace Roach, Perch, Grayling, Trout and the odd Carp and Barbel are present. Carp to 18lb and Roach to 2lb 8oz present. Weed can be a problem in the summer months.
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.

Follow the B3001 from Farnham through Elstead. Turn left at the road signposted Pepper Harrow and Shackleford. The river passes beneath the road at Somerset Bridge
Park in the lay-by on the left hand side before the bridge or over the bridge on the right hand side. Please do not block the entrance gate to the field or the gate into the farm.
Proceed over the style by the bridge. The river may be fished upstream from the weir on the right hand bank for approximately one mile. Entrance to the second field is over the gate or the gap in the fence.
