    River Avon

    Rising on the Wiltshire/Berkshire border, the River Avon flows southward for over 40 miles until it reaches the sea at Christchurch. The lower sections are famous for salmon, including the legendary Royalty Bridge pool.

    However, for trout fishermen the pick of the beats are upstream of Salisbury, especially over Salisbury Plain where Frank Sawyer, inventor of the Pheasant Tail Nymph, lived and keepered all his life.

    AVON SPRINGS   

     

    This lovely stretch of the River Avon is renowned for good brown trout and grayling. Immaculately cared for by the owners it has a high proportion of wild fish, plus fish reared on site that were the progeny of the original Avon native fish.

    There is an abundance of insect life providing a varied food source with fly hatches that include mayfly, damselfly, sedge and many others. The ‘dry fly only’ rule is in force until June 1st after which traditional nymphs may be used.

    The beat is shared by up to four rods. There is the option of the sporting ticket that allows you to swap between the lakes and river at will.

    UPAVON FARM

     

    Upavon Farm is in the heart of that part of the Avon valley that Frank Sawyer, river keeper extraordinaire and inventor of the Pheasant Tail Nymph, made his own.

    This all wading beat is the perfect place to follow in his footsteps where sight fishing, with both dry and nymph, is the only way to go. Never stocked, this is an all wild trout fishery that holds a good head of grayling as well.

    Upavon is ideal for one person or two friends sharing
