The River Beane

Post by BobH » Fri Jan 06, 2012 8:52 am

The River Beane was made famous by Richard Walker back in the 50/60s and well known for its Roach and Dace 50 years ago.

I sometimes walk a small section of the river and have seen some good Chub in the Hertford section of river.

The Beane, along with the Lea was a favourite haunt of mine, mainly in and around Hartham Park, Hertford. That photo looks like it was taken from the town bridge.

I used to live in Hertford in the early 80's and regularly took chub on freelined flake and lobworms, somewhere I have a piccy of a 6lb 7oz one that I'll try and find, even in those days it was surprising the number of carp that turned up, particularly in the slacks, and also after a flood the number of trout that would be taken......... ah happy days.

I live 100 yards away from the River Beane in Walkern. The river has all but dried up here but looks fantastic downstream at Stapleford and very fishy. I would love to know if there is any free fishing or clubs that hold fishing rights for the Beane. I have Googled fishing on the river but not really come up with any info at all. I also saw mention to Fred J Taylor's book Favorite Swims and a 'Lily Pad Hole' swim, where about is it?
Any info on River Beane fishing would be great chaps.

Thanks

The Hole is in Hertford and fished by a trout syndicate now.

Thanks Olly, I would love to know a little more about it. Is it Trout only?
