The owners of the Bovey Castle fishing rights, which cover nearly 5 miles of fishing on the right bank, put the rights on the market back in June 2015, still no decision has been made by the hotel.
We have no access at the moment to the fishing between Fingle and Clifford bridge.
Below Clifford Bridge (apart from a small section of private immediately below Clifford) left hand bank is accessible all the way to Steps Bridge, but not the right bank.
Above Fingle Bridge, we do not have access to the right bank extending approx 1500 metres upstream.
When we have more news the website will be updated and an email sent out.
The committee are working hard on your behalf to retain these rights.
