This is one of the oldest CADAC beats and was formerly known as the 'Council Run' due to the fact that it was previously owned by the County Council. Not only has the name changed but the beat itself has altered dramatically over the years.
This beat offers great sport for all anglers and consists of a narrow channel with reasonably fast water which opens out into a smooth glide. Salmon anglers usually fish the top end of the Run whilst the bottom of the beat offers the Trout and Grayling angler some excellent nymph and dry fly fishing.
