This small tributary of the River Hamble is a true wild fishery containing the same species as the main River. Access is available at both ends of the fishery shown on the map. With much of the stream being too shallow to fish its essential to travel light and find the deeper pools. The stream is best known as a winter fishery when access is easier and there is extra depth but fishes well all year round.

1. Juniors up to and including the age of 15 years may only fish when accompanied by an Adult or Associate member.
