Beat description:-

The beat was made famous by A H Chaytor who fished it with great success at the beginning of the 20th century.
Chaytor’s experiences here formed the basis for his salmon fishing classic, “Letters to a Salmon Fisher’s Sons”.
The beat is over two and a half miles of the main river. It is just over 3 miles upstream of Bywell and is very good salmon holding water. There is good fly water throughout, commencing with some excellent runs at the upstream, western limit.

There is a well-appointed fishing hut at the car parking area next to the productive Widehaugh Pool. Tea & coffee is provided and there is an outdoor picnic area with tables and BBQ.
With good quality water throughout the beat, there are excellent opportunities for the angler at varying water heights.
The beat is dissected into upper and lower halves by the Devil’s Water where it flows into the main river.
The upper half of the beat, upstream from the Devil’s Water to the western limit, fishes most consistently, but there are excellent opportunities at the lower half downstream from the Devil’s Water to the bridge at Corbridge particularly in higher water.
