Chalk stream Fishing

River Allen

The River Allen is a lovely, pure chalkstream that runs through the finest countryside in Dorset. With a total length of 13 miles, the Allen is a tributary to the Stour, the two rivers coming together just outside Wimborne Minster and entering the sea at Christchurch.

Of all the English chalkstreams, the Allen is one of the most private because nearly its entire length is under the ownership of just two large estates that have been in the same family for many generations.

This is a stream that teems with wild trout and is heaven for dry fly purists.

DEANS COURT

 

The River Allen is one of England’s most unspoilt chalkstreams, which still boasts a thriving population of our native white-clawed crayfish. Running through the grounds of Deans Court this beat is fast flowing, with plenty of wild brown trout and a good head of grayling.

Gin-clear and with plenty of ranunculus to support good fly life this is an ideal place if you like sight fishing and fish that come from nowhere to grab a dry fly as it drifts along margins of bank and weed. Generally it is best fished by wading, though for some sections you will get out to fish from the bank.

This beat is ideal for one rod or two friends sharing.

HEMSWORTH HUTS
with wild trout fishing on the River Allen


 

It is hard to find a more peaceful, rural get-away-from-it all idyll than the Hemsworth Huts. Set amidst a 1,000 acre organic estate these unique shepherds huts are on the edge of unspoilt water meadows, circling a small lake and stream with the River Allen a short walk across the meadows.

The fishing is an all wading and all wild 775yds/710m beat where you will catch perfectly speckled brownies and gorgeous grayling. This is the sort of fishing where you will use your shortest, lightest outfit and delight in the freedom of summer wet wading.

 

There are two huts that sit on the edge of a woodland clearing. Hemsworth One is the primary shepherd hut which has a double bed, kitchenette with running water, gas cooker, electricity and log burner. There is a WC and a separate shower. Hemsworth Two is a smaller version of One with a single bed which makes up into a small double and again has electricity, log burner, running water and WC.

Outside there is seating and a firepit.

Hemsworth One. The 2 night weekend or 3 night midweek rental includes unlimited fishing on the River Allen from 3pm on day of arrival to dusk on day of departure. No wi-fi and limited 3G signal. Dogs welcome. Maximum party of two, including children.

Hemsworth One & Two. The 2 night weekend or 3 night midweek rental includes unlimited fishing on the River Allen from 3pm on day of arrival to dusk on day of departure. No wi-fi and limited 3G signal. Dogs welcome. Hemsworth Two is best for one adult or shared by two young children.

Notes: If you book Hemsworth One Hemsworth Two will be left vacant to give you exclusive use. Though you have unlimited fishing we recommend that you fish no more than two Rods at any one time to reduce the pressure on the fish. This is an all catch and release water.

WIMBORNE ST. GILES

 

The River Allen is a chalkstream gem, a true wild trout paradise in the most beautiful, unspoilt and tranquil English countryside.This is gin-clear water, ideal for sight and dry fly fishing of the very highest quality.

The fishing is divided into four beats; the three Home beats plus the Village Water. The Home beats, Bowerswaine, Upper Brockington and Lower Brockington are a combination of bank fishing with some wading sections.

Each of the three Home beats is suitable for one Rod, or they are easily combined for a two friends or a small party

“Small river, secluded, wading.”   “It was the first I have fished the Allen but was charmed by it. Absolutely pristine.”    “Lovely unspoiled English countryside, the wildlife is amazing and the water crystal clear. ”

Village Water

 

The Village Water beat is wild trout fishing of the highest order. Never easy, this is a long beat that runs to nearly a mile in length that requires the lightest outfit and the accurate casting.

Fed by the perennial spring at the headwater of the River Allen the water will feel distinctly chilly when you first get in and its pellucid nature will disguise some surprisingly deep sections. However, the beat is very much left to nature so the difficulty factor is necessarily high.

The Village beat is suitable for one Rod or two friends fishing together. It is a 1.5 miles from the Home beats, so they may be combined for extra variety.
