THE OLD HARP FISHERY
RIVER WYE, HOARWITHY
The fishery consists of double and single bank fishing, above and below Hoarwithy Bridge, along approximately 0.75 miles of the Wye, and is now available by arrangement for Coarse, Pike and Salmon angling. It has historically been very lightly fished.
This is limited to 5 rods at any time at a day rate of £15 per angler with a one rod limit per angler. The stretch produces good catches of Barbel and Chub, along with Dace, and increasingly Roach and Perch. The whole stretch can be exclusively booked for £60 for up to 5 anglers.
(As from 16th June 2019, the day rate will increase to £18 per angler with the cost of booking the whole stretch increasing to £75. Children under 16 free provided accompanied by an adult).
This is limited to between 1st November to the 1st February at a day rate of £25 per angler with a limit of two anglers and a one rod per angler rule.
The beat has been in the same family ownership for many years, and was historically a prolific water considering the lack of fishing pressure from family and friends. It has only been fished sporadically for Salmon in recent times and the occasionally recorded fish cannot reflect the potential of the fishery.
There is good wading fly water and deeper sections and pools. There is also exclusive parking beside the Salmon Hut, which is available for shelter and tea making for those with exclusive day rights
Aimed at keen and experienced Salmon fishermen, and subject to availability, an allocated, regular weekly day for the whole beat, during the Spring period March 3rd to 15th June 2019 (equivalent to c14 days), for a rod plus guest.
Prices (inclusive of guest):
A regular Saturday or Sunday - £250
A regular weekday - £200
Please register your interest.
