Property Description:

Situated above and below the town of Foxford. This fishery has been developed during the past five years as the most interesting fly fishery on the lower Moy. Unlike the rest of the lower river, which tends to be slow water, the Foxford Rocks has a very considerable gradient and a good flow throughout the beat. New pools have been expertly designed and made to accentuate this and to allow the fly to fish realistically with minimal assistance. It is an exciting stretch to fish, although not at all difficult, particularly in the lowest two pools.
The water above the bridge is streamy with rocks and boulders providing natural lies. It is a mixture or wading and bank fishing. Immediately below the bridge is the Flag, a notorious holding pool just above the eel weirs. It is exciting water to fish, best in lower water when the fisherman can wade the length of it with many choices of cast over good lies. The tail consists of several rapid flowing channels. Immediately below the eel weir is a pool which is the widest on the beat (50 yards). This fishes well from either bank or from the base of the old weirs. The Ford pool below this, which is on the site of the place where there used to be a river crossing, fishes best from the East bank. It is separated from the pool above by a dam of natural rock. The water at the head of the pool is rapid and broken and is a very good place to catch running fish as they pause before the obstacle. The central section features a deep run on the West side and a gently sloping beach on the East. There are large boulders on the riverbed, behind which fish hold in all heights of water. At the tail fish lie in shoals just above the next obstacle, another rocky weir. Below this is a very exciting pool with a torrential flow at the head, flattening out into a gentle curve with deep holding water at the tail. Fishing in the three lower pools is not adversely affected by water height to the same degree as much of the river. The fly is always the preferred option although spinning is sometimes allowed in certain conditions or when the water is above a marker. There is a permanent gillie who is able to give tuition to the beginner and will be on hand throughout the day to give advice and guidance. Parking is very easy at either end of the beat and the fisherman is always in easy reach of his car.
