BRONZE PERMIT NIGHT FISHING

 

A long venue of about 1.75 miles of some 85 swims divided into two sections above and below Benson Lock.

B section has suffered considerable erosion and many pegs can only be fished with difficulty or at low water. Always check swim area to ensure that it is safe and has not been undercut. Far bank feeder fishing produces good nets of Chub, Roach and Perch.

Section A is a good walk, but upstream of the Lock is on a long sweeping bend which has not suffered the same erosion problems. Near bank fishing is favoured with Chub and Bream featuring with Roach and Perch.
