The Home Beat

This is chalk stream paradise.

With a central fishing hut making it a great beat to fly fish with friends, the fishing hut is next to a pretty bridge pool with plenty of room to relax and enjoy lunch with a glass of wine.

The “Home Beat” makes up a mile of exciting and challenging fly fishing, we also have half a mile of carrier north of the main beat, slightly wilder fishing suitable for those who love to wade.

A great variation of fishing, classic chalk stream features including riffles, pools, plenty of glides and overhanging trees, great sight fishing in crystal clear water.

The fishing is for totally wild Brown Trout and huge Grayling, for which the Frome is famous.

We have had Grayling to well over FOUR pounds on this beat, and historically the main river beat has never been stocked.

I spent many happy hours Grayling fishing here as a child, and have looked after the fishing here for well over twenty years
