Beat 31: Jays

River Carey – River Tamar

Beat 31: Jays – River Carey

SX 363872 – SX 359863     1.6 km of single right hand bank

Brown trout and grayling fishing with occasional sea trout on the lower of the two Carey beats available. This beat is in a lovely wide valley with lots of water for several anglers. Like the other Carey beat it is best suited to a shorter fly rod 7-8ft, 3-4 wt. Again, just out fished by the Boldford Bridge beat in 2017, it is hoped that the Carey beats continue to improve and provide consistently good sport.
