River Arrow - Herefordshire

Managed to fit in a mid-week excursion to the delightful River Arrow near to Leominster thanks to an invite from fellow blogger Peter Anderson.

The river here meanders through the Herefordshire countryside creating some very interesting water with many riffles and deep pools to search out.

Things started very slow for both of us but as so often happens when Grayling fishing at this time of year you find a pool with some feeding fish in and can take quite a few fish in no time at all.

We ended the day with some very nice Grayling between us and Peter managing to net a real beauty which we estimated at around the 2 1/2lb mark.


  1. Beautiful looking river - just my sort of fishing. I've only recently moved from Norfolk to Bromsgrove and the Arrow is on the list of rivers I'm itching to get on to. I was led to belive the Midlands was a "trout desert" but there is nearly always good fishing under your nose if you make the effort to find it.

  2. Sorry for the late reply David...only just spotted it.

    The west midlands is far from a 'trout dessert' and from Bromsgrove you have some exceptionally good water within an hour or so drive including the River Arrow & Lugg with Wye & Usk Foundation water available on both.

    Good luck.
