Upper Eden Beat: Hoff Beck information

Go Wild Beat No5 Hoff Beck

2 Tokens
Brown Trout
1 kilometre of double bank fishing

The Hoff Beck drains part of the limestone pavement above Asby, meeting the Eden north of Appleby.

This 1km beat of double bank fishing meanders through a narrow floodplain corridor, between mature woodland on the right bank and two hazel copses on the left.

A popular haunt for red squirrels, so keep a watchful eye out for them moving across the beck from the copses to the woods.

Easy access, beautiful scenery and easy fishing….well easy casting anyway. The trout in here are easily spooked. And big fat fuzzy flies won't tempt them. Size 18 and less, small and dark and very sparsely tied flies should get good results.

Go Wild is ours innovative roving voucher angling scheme. We have 28 challenging fishing beats spread throughout Cumbria’s beautiful Eden valley. The beats are all on private land, accessible only via the Go Wild scheme and are all real hidden gems.

Go Wild has been designed to provide a sustainable income for farmers and landowners, focusing particularly on stretches of river where habitat improvement work has been carried out.
