    I'm hoping to fish the Teise on Tuesday as long as it's not too high or coloured. Do any Forum members fish here? If so any pointers would be much appreciated.

    Hi all,

    Happily resurrecting this wonderful thread.

    I am a new member on the Teise. I went for a few hours fishing yesterday and it certainly is a picturesque, varied river. It looks like it is predominantly going to be wading-only (I probably fished half of beat 2 and can not see how one could present a fly properly from the bank, it is very overgrown). There was a pretty decent hatch coming off but I couldnt see any fish rising. I primarily fished a small gold head but no dice yesterday.

    Roll casts and flicks are certainly the order of the day. I did manage a false cast or two on one beautiful stretch. My 7' 3wt Hardy Featherweight feels slightly overgunned. Possibly now in the market for a Superfine or something shorter and lighter..

    Very much looking forward to unlocking a few of the river's secrects. Does anyone on here fish or have previously fished it? I am much more of a dry fly man at heart and would like to know if prospecting in the likely spots would offer some results on here.

    Hi Jay. It might be worth PM’ing Roger H as I know that Roger has fished it fairly recently. I hope to fish it soon (my club has a reciprocal arrangement) but not managed it yet.

    I have walked along part of it and, as you say, the access is interesting.
    It's a paycheck, Jack.

    I fished it for a few years, but for various reasons I had to give it up.

    It is lovely and fishes better after a dry period as it definitely is a spate stream. In the winter it can be a raging torrent you shouldn't go anywhere near. You'll start to find the spots where the fish tend to rise more often. I always preferred the river up-stream of the Goudhurst Road car park. All along that section is bank fishing and you can see where the access points are for the less able or those preferring not to wade.

    Places to get fish on that stretch, remember this is eight years ago, are on the first sweeping bend under a big willow. You then walk through a wood where there are two good spots and then over a little bridge ...... on that right angle bend you can scramble down to the tree on the corner, I always found a fish on that bend ..... might have changed.

    Then as you come into the field in low water you can wade right upto the big pool after the footpath bridge and there are generally fish there. A nymph should catch something in the big pool ...... after the pool there are access points to get to the river on the bends. The first bend after the pool was always a favorite spot for me. I once saw a fish track an emerging mayfly coming off the water and then leap into the air to try and take it, the Mayfly won ..... as I did later.

    The hatch trickles off all summer, so with patience something will be rising. But they are sporadic. If all else fails head for the Halfway House at Horsemonden, catch a couple of pints and then return. The stocking levels are good, but it is not the easiest river to catch on which is a good thing ...... forget the chub without a maggot they will frustrate the hell out of you. There is on spot on the lower best below the weir where you can catch grayling.

    Personally I used a 7' 4# when windy and a 6' #2 if not ...... especially after they rightly started stocking more but smaller fish.
