 Salmon fishing opportunity next season.

Rod availability in Bigsweir syndicate for 2022 season


Wye Salmon Association has the opportunity to offer six rods fishing for salmon on a Friday fortnightly basis on the prime lower river Wye salmon fishery at Bigsweir. The six rods will be part of a long established syndicate that has fished this beat for over 25 years. For the 2022 season each rod will fish alternate Fridays.

   The fishery has six beats and two rods fish each beat. The rods fish a beat in the morning and another in the afternoon, rotating at 1pm. This fishery has the bonus of being influenced by tidal heights which during high tides bring fresh salmon into the beats. Bigsweir is the first major salmon fishery on the Wye though a smaller beat is located downstream which is only very lightly fished.

   There is no Ghillie, but the syndicate organiser will be happy to show new rods all the beats in both high and low water conditions throughout the entire season. He will also be on hand to offer tackle advice for both spinning and fly fishing.

  Before the season start, each rod will be sent a rota showing their allocated beats for each day and any associated tide information. All rods must pay a 50% non refundable deposit by agreement with the syndicate organiser. The balance to be paid by the end of January 2022.

This Friday fishing opportunity has arisen because a number of rods have not fished the last two seasons due to covid and the associated restrictions that were imposed. This in turn has caused some rods to cease fishing because of this. Although Bigsweir was only lightly fished in 2019, it still produced 90+ salmon. In 2021 it only produced 42 salmon. The main reason for this low catch was the fact that not many anglers fished their rods this season. This last season produced a mixed bag of fish at Bigsweir to the syndicate rods, as well as salmon, seatrout, bass and rainbow trout were also caught during the season.

If you are interested to fish at Bigsweir for the 2022 salmon season and would like further details, please contact Peter Hickman.
