    The Three Holes end is quite good but it gets hammered. Popham's Eau is worth fishing for the first hundred yards or so where it joins the Sixteen Foot. You sometimes get a nice slack on this confluence when the drains are pumping.

    Further back the bit between Boots Bridge and the Ramsey Forty Foot/Horseway confluence is also meant to be pretty good. I know a couple of big fish have come off the Horseway, inc a 29 a couple of seasons back.

    Watch it at night - the lay-by is full of tree clippings etc and you get a lot of dodgy so and so's around up there dumping things.

    There was also a load of tackle nicked out of the back of a car on one of the drainds up there a couple of weeks ago.

    They've just dredged around that confluence.

    The Horseway is meant to be good when the drains it connects are out of sorts, I think the bigger fish have come from the Welche's Dam end.

    There's also a good looking bit of the Sixteen Foot where it wides out for 100 yards or so below Boots Bridge, never fished that bit myself but have often fancied a poke around on there.
