    Yep! 2/3rds the way upstream on the first coarse beat (below the trout beats). Top of that first beat, first hut, is several hundred yards above the bridge. Access to that bridge was always...

    Last week I was faced with a raging flooded river Wye. Never mind, the local Indian restaurant in Ross provided a very suitable place to adjust our plans.

    We had arrived on Monday evening to see...

    Re: Royalty and Throop

    I moved away in 1988 and didn't come back permanently until 2015. But I was a little closer as I lived around the Hants/Surrey border so it was a 150/160 mile round trip.

    The Stour at Throop is low, clear and has copious amounts of weed, all entirely usual for this time of the year. Fortunately it is a good 12ins higher than this time last season but needs some summer...

    Potentially two different outfits but I suggest you go for one to start with which should cover both situations.
