As everyone knows, Salmon fishing continues to be difficult on the river Wye. however Thomas Wood  offers an excellent chance of a fish at any time of the season to both fly or spinning.  The fishery is well placed at the upper end of the Lower River Wye fisheries.

Whereas day tickets allow fishermen to be on the water with the best chance of catching fish, the Spring Salmon season ticket holder, has unlimited 7 day a week access to try for a very large springer up to June 16th and an undoubted advantage.

There are some famous holding pools and catches along the Thomas Wood fishery and the persistent and able Salmon fisherman will stand a good chance of catching fish.  Spring Salmon Season tickets from  “Lower Wye Fishing” are realistically priced to give huge discounts on day tickets, if fishermen were to fish every week. The rod system also allows for salmon fishermen to book up for a holiday of fishing for a number of consecutive days or a week. There is some first class and lovely bed and breakfast accommodation and self catering nearby, which I can personally recommend and I can always point fishermen in the right direction. My first choice for Upper Courtfield beats would unreservedly be Symonds Yat Rock Lodge.
