Welcome to the English chalkstreams
“One swallow does not make a summer, but one skein of geese, cleaving the murk of March thaw, is the spring”. So wrote Aldo Leopold, the American author and considered by some the founding father of environmentalism. It is a beautiful quote and a great thought as we wait with growing anticipation for the rivers to open in April.
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.
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 has to be the most wonderful place to catch your first ever fish.
NEW for 2017 is Qing Ya Xi on the River Itchen, extensive restoration projects at Bullington Manor and Whitchurch Fulling Mill, an addition for Exton Manor Farm on the River Meon so this is now for two Rods, a River Camp for 11-16 years and Season Ticket options.
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.
Finally if you are browsing the site with 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.
