I am delighted to bring you the widest range of the very best chalkstream fishing in England from the company I founded twenty five years ago. I personally select every beat we offer, fish them all and through the season I work daily with the river owners and keepers to ensure the fishing is second to none.

The chalkstreams range far and wide from the famous River Test in Hampshire across six other counties from Dorset in the west to Yorkshire in the north. Every river (we have over twenty) is very special in its own right and you will find a description, photos, location map, video and prices for each, plus my unique Tranquillity and Difficulty rating.Look out for the beats that have my Exclusive to Fishing Breaks tag, which are only available through my company.

There are various ways to book: the on-line system shows up-to-the minute availability. Alternatively do give me a call or drop me an email as I am always happy to discuss the options if you are undecided.

Here at Nether Wallop Mill, in the heart of Hampshire, I host our private tuition, courses and family days from April to October. Everyone is welcome and with a beautiful thatched cabin overlooking a gin-clear, well stocked lake with rainbow, brown and blue trout this is the most enchanting spot to catch your first fish.

Finally if you are browsing the site with Christmas, a birthday, anniversary or special occasion in mind, I’d point you in the direction of our gift vouchers. I have set a standard that few match in terms of breadth of choice, ease of use and a ground-breaking two years in which to use them.

I hope a great fishing trip is about to begin.

Best wishes!
