Hoddom’s fishing is situated just 4 miles from the sea and comprises of about 2.5 miles of double bank fishing with 10 named pools (and lots of fishing in between them).
The beat is set amongst stunning woodland that burst into a kaleidoscope of colours every autumn. The ungrazed banks are rich in wild flowers from late spring through to late summer offering excellent cover for anglers to sneak up on fish.
Much of the beat offers classic fly water with strong flowing streams interspersed with steadily flowing glides. The beat is generally fairly easy to access though care should be taken when wading at night or when there is a rise in water.
Please note that all salmon must be returned until 1st June.
Hoddom is normally the top beat on the river for sea trout and salmon with records of 430 salmon for 2004 and over 1,000 sea trout in 1998. In common with much of the Annan salmon catches have been steadily rising on this beat for the last few years.
