Catch and Release Beat
Beat 11 is our catch and release fishing beat. We are trying to improve it in order to favour wild fish, the beat will still be stocked and you can take your bag or return the fish to fight another day.
Carrier fishing, and lots of it. Beat 11 runs downstream of The Bunny (the Lane that joins the A3057 with Longstock village) and comprises of a braided system of carriers originally dug to supply water to the meadows in the 1800s.
This is small water and ideal for a 3 or 4 weight outfit, but don’t be mistaken in thinking all the fish are small. The deeper glides and pools hold fish of over 3lbs and a surprise monster is always on the cards. A stealthy approach is recommended as this is close quarter fishing.
Access and parking is through the gate downstream of the main road bridge on The Bunny. Follow the Beat markers heading south, Beat 11 is signposted over a left-hand plank bridge. The hut is located at the end of the track, halfway down the Beat.
