Thanks for your enquiry. When stating which hand bank the fishing is on, it is taken as if you were looking downstream. Also, once you have downloaded the beat details pdf, the bank from which you have access is shown in red. Hopefully this makes sense and is of assistance?
Wading is often the best way to make best use of our rivers. Once you get in the river it is often possible to wade long distances fishing as you go – please refer to ’Fishing Safely and Responsibly’ in the guidance section. How far you should wade across a river when only one bank of fishing is available is a grey area but it would be wise to stay in your half of the river and certainly don’t access the opposite bank.
Hopefully this is of some help and you will get out and give it a go, if you need anything in the meantime please let us know.
