The last couple of days we were fishing at Fownhope and Tuesday we were at Backney. Bookable here: https://www.fishingpassport.co.uk
It isn’t cheap but you book a beat, which means you have each venue to yourselves.
I hadn’t fished there before this week and it is unlike anywhere I have been before. Forget yer southern lowland rivers meandering through water meadows, The Wye is a beast! Seriously powerful, with steep banks and a lot of rocks. You need strong tackle to cope with it. Often, a proper cast is necessary and in a lot of cases this week, 3 Or 4 ounces to hold bottom. My 2lb test curve rod wasn’t man enough to deal with it in some cases. A proper wild river though and teeming with fish. I can’t wait to go back!
