This was sent to me from minutes of the combined clubs meeting "There is a 20m drop at a washout on the Poulter."

Take care.
Ok people, move along. Nothing to see here. Thank you, move along.

Last time I was there (3 mo ago) we dropped into the river about 1/2 K back from the slip then went back onto the track a bit further up.

I understand the large scree slope may be a struggle to drive now too.

We didn't even see any fish, not saying there arn't any thou. It's a reasonably fast flowing river with very few (if any) quite pools or eddys and was still a little higher than usual. I've little experience with fishing this type of water, excuses, excuses I know :lol: It was windy as well, at times your legs were getting sand blasted. A fish would have been nice, but its all about the adventure, and scenery....

The hardest past is crossing the river due to the slip, its also quite remote so I would take two vehicles minimum
