Beat 26b: Lower Sydenham
River Lyd – River Tamar
Beat 26: Sydenham – River Lyd
84761 1.6km mixed single and double bank
The longer and more challenging fishing at Sydenham can be found down stream. The very bottom of the beat is rarely fished due to the walk in, but has an excelent series of deep pools. A little further up the gradient drops and the river straightens a little to create beautiful dry fly glides. As you get nearer the Chillaton brook confluence larger deeper corner pots are where to look
