2nd WFFC project - 24th June 2021 - 8 volunteers opened up fishing access to Barford St Martins beats (refer to membership book)
Beat E - 1st reach - d/s scrapyard bridge to first bend and crossing point - wading members can now fish this entire reach without any casting impediments.
2nd reach - reach between next two d/s bends - it is now possible to wade from the ladder near the d/s point and cast under the canopy on left and right banks.
3rd reach - this is already easy casting EXCEPT the pool betwixt R2/3 - this is too deep and obstructed.
Beat D - 1st reach - d/s farm bridge to point where river joins woodland - not tackled as already accessible
2nd reach - d/s river in woodland to Mill House hatches - it is now possible to wade and fish this entire reach.
3rd reach - Mill House pond d/s to scrap yard bridge - fishing up there two bank side casting points opened up including the tree downed by winter storms fashioned by one creative member into a platform - and the mill pond is now completely accessible.
Enjoy your fishing at Barford beats - more access - thanks to our 8 volunteers - if you wish to volunteer - email me Hon River Manager to join volunteer email group.
