Parking is at the public parking area at the golf course (the first patch you come to) with a walk past the club house to start at the western end of the common, or a walk past Common Pond and across the fields to reach the eastern end (probably the best point to start).

A good rule of thumb here is the furthest walks across the common produce the biggest fish. In a pristine undisturbed setting make the walk down to the old Target and opposite woods it will be well worth while.

Bream can run to 9lbs. Big Chub hang under overhanging tree swims. Double figure Pike and Carp can also be caught.

Be prepared for hire canoe traffic on the river during summer months.

There are 400 yards of fishing on the Norfolk bank in the vicinity of the Lay-by Pit. Parking for this stretch is at the Pit.

These are shallow streamier waters, well weeded, but can produce a nice evening.
Your swim will be exhausted after a couple of hours so move on.
First part of section has overhanging tree swims that hold good Chub. (Difficult to reach from Suffolk side.)
