We were pleased to reach agreement with the Ford and Etal Estates Department in 2010 and have added the Ford Beat, just over one mile of single bank fishing, on this river for members. Again we are able to advise that the parking is right next to the river. Whilst we do have our own bailiffs we do advise that the Estate have their own River Watchers who will escort you from the water for failure to display your car badge and/or produce your membership card when requested. Whilst this beat did not initially prove as popular as our Fenton beat in 2010 or 2011 we were pleased to see more members fishing, and being successful in the 2012 season. Unlike the Fenton beat members are able to fish for brown trout and grayling on this stretch.
