This is one of the main CADAC beats and offers anglers a massive variety of fishing. Members with the relevant permits can fish for Salmon, Sea Trout, Brown Trout and Grayling.
This is a popular beat with fly fishermen, bait and spinner fishermen and consists of slow and fast water, riffles and glides.
Both parking and access is excellent and there are huts and benches along the whole of the beat. Recent arrangements have resulted in riverside parking spaces in two places on this highly productive beat. This stretch of water is also the home of the famous and productive Tailor's Pool.
Night fishing for Sea Trout is allowed until 3am
