Methods:

Tips / Comments:
Because of the small width of the river, short rods are the order of the day. For float fishing, 10ft is ideal, anything longer is a handicap! Fly fishing requires a rod no longer than 7ft with a 5-6 DT line - no long casting is required, just accuracy as otherwise you will be catching more trees than fish!
All the normal baits will catch fish including maggots, worms, sweet corn. Best floats are the Grayling style as they ride the rough water better than very slim ones.
WARNING - WADE WITH CARE! There are some pools which are 5ft deep plus and therefore over the top of even chest waders. However, chest waders are ideal as they allow you to cover a lot more water with easier casting.
