As for Clefthill and continue over bridge to a fork at the Eliasdale farmstead. Take the road to the left marked “Bokspruit”. Continue to next fork and take the road to the right to the Bokspruit. Continue, crossing another bridge over the Bokspruit at Welgemoed, passing lands on the right to where a row of poplar trees extends from the road to the Bokspruit on the right. This is the downstream boundary. Park inside a gate where a sign on the right reads “Buckstone”. Walk a short distance from there to the Bokspruit and fish upstream of the row of poplars. Fish the northern bank only until reaching a concrete ford across the Bokspruit from where both banks may be used until the end of the beat beyond the Birnam and Killmore structures. From the upstream boundary of Knockwarren one may continue to fish from the bridge upstream and from the northern bank only until reaching the Birnam/Killmore boundary +-800m upstream from the bridge.
