    Sadly good brown trout fishing near Kent is either expensive too overgrown or private with long waiting lists. That's why I bough a camper van and go to the national parks.
    Though tiese anglers is worth a look

    Nice fishery, with a hut too, although don't rely on the toilets being unlocked. On the car park/hut side of the main road, up from the sluice-pool (you'll see it, which incidentally has some large trout in it, possibly rainbows), you have about 1/2 mile or so of small stream stuff; only fished that stretch once with no joy. Across the road, if you turn left upstream, the river is probably a bit narrower, but holds plenty of wbt and grayling, but I invariably have had more luck downstream where there are more variations of water. It just looks fishier.
    I only fish there in the autumn/winter so invariably nymph, but often see rising fish in the slower water.
    It's a good fishery, you can wade but don't really need to, there's plenty of water to cover and importantly, there's some good pubs locally which would appreciate your custom!

    Just a thought, there's 2 stocked ponds, one near the hut, one across the road and I believe you're allowed to have a go at the rainbows there, but I never have. They look lifeless, but I've seen someone feeding the one near the hut, and it's packed with them.
    Cheers.

    It is a very nice beat, I fished it for the first time a few weeks ago and had a good day.

    Started at the downstream limit of the main section and worked back up to the confluence with the feeder (a good 6 or 7 hours fishing). Took plenty of fish on dry flies, nothing fancy mainly DHEs and CDC patterns in the slower water. Took a number of decent grayling on nymphs in the few deeper pools and plenty of lovely trout. Ended up with over 40 fish by lunchtime.

    Tried the upstream end but it is very tricky with the bankside growth in its current state, winkled a few out but there is no way this could be fished other than wading and casting directly upstream, probably 4ft of clear water at maximum when I was there.

    Finally had a cheeky hour casting very big dry flies in the sluice pool up the feeder stream. Managed a few small grayling and then a nice brown trout of 2.8 lbs and a bloody enormous escapee rainbow of 4.2 lbs.

    Wouldn't hesitate to go back again and will be there for the grayling in October.
