The River Brue is a small part of a network of drains which over hundreds of years have converted the Somerset saltmarsh into what is now fesh water wetland and patureland. The banks of the River Brue are a haven for wild life and the river is renowned for shoals of large carp, roach, bream and chub.
Follow directions as for Black Bull Bridge, but instead of turning right on the Burtle Road continue on and cross the river at the bridge. Bear left towards Burtle after crossing the bridge for about ¾ mile to a very sharp right-handed bend with a gate on the left. Go through the gate and follow the track around the field to the farm and Green Metal bridge is clearly visible across the field. Park on the grass off the track just prior to the bridge keeping the track and gateways clear.
Fishing rights extend for three fields upstream of the bridge on the right bank, plus two fields upstream on the left bank. Additionally two fields downstream from the parking area and bridge on the right bank are available.
