The Austnes Beat is long and varied. Here are big rocks, deep pools, quiet parts and streams. The beat is very well suited for fly fishing. If you rent the beat for a week or two, you and your compan-ions have exclusive access to two kilometres of shore. All of the 1 200 metre long stretch on the farm side belongs to Austnes, from the lower end of zone 1 below Austnes Waterfall all the way up to the top of Marka Pool. On the southern shore everyone may buy a fishing licence for zone 1, Austnes Waterfall. You and your company who rent Austnes Beat can also fish there; it is part of the package. The only stretch not included as of today, is the eastern shore of zone 3, Austnes Stream, which is hired by the local hunters and anglers association.
