River Tavy Beat 4 -Lower Beat reserved Water 0.6K
Fishing for full members only, in rotation according to ticket colour and calendar.
Single left bank fishing begins at the hedge immediately below Bertha Pool. Bertha Clam is the first pool, it is at the site of an old footbridge and the cables are still visible. It looks insignificant but produced a 23 lb salmon in recent years. The beat continues for 0.6 kilometres and ends 30 metres above Ludbrook Weir.
Access is from the single track roads from Fairtown or Coppice Town and down the tarmac track to Hatch Mill. Parking is possible just above the gate to Hatchmill either in the unused gateway (overgrown) or in the layby created for this purpose. No cars in Hatchmill please and do not obstruct access to the property. Please keep dogs on leads as poultry are often on the footpath leading through the yard and beyond.
The upper section of the beat is accessed from the first field gate on your left walking back up the hill from the car park. An alternative route is via a steep path through the wood. The access to the path is just above the car park but is often obscured by summer growth. Please take extreme care if using this route as the path is very steep and slippery. It is impossible to pass directly from Hatch Mill Pool to Anderton Weir and vice versa, with any safety, and all members are advised to make the short detour described above.
