Chalk stream Fishing

River Wylye

The Wylye rises 5 miles south of Warminster and flows north to the town; this uppermost reach is sometimes referred to as ‘The Deverill Brook’. Turning westward, it flows for another 16 miles to join the Nadder just below Wilton, shortly before the latter reaches the Avon at Salisbury a mile or so further on.

It is often spoken by many as one of the most unspoilt of all the chalkstreams, perhaps due in part to the fact that it is largely in the ownership of a great family estate and two famous fishing clubs.

FISHERTON DE LA MERE  

 

This is a lovely beat on the River Wylye between Salisbury and Warminster in the tiny hamlet of Fisherton de la Mere and has been in the same ownership for many years.

Fisherton has plenty of variety, which starts with the fast, shallow gravelly section that leads to the big Hatch Pool; you’d be advised to take your waders. Above the hatches the river is slower and deeper as you might expect, mostly fished from the bank.

This beat is ideal for one rod or two friends together. There is a comfortable rod room and car parking adjacent to the river.

STEEPLE LANGFORD  NEW

 

Just arrived! Steeple Langford is between Warminster and Salisbury on what is generally considered as the prime section of the River Wylye, one of the most unspoilt of all our chalkstreams.

This is an all wading, all wild trout fishery with a native population of brown trout and grayling.  With a weir pool at the midpoint the beat divides into two distinct styles: the bottom section is riffled and shallow, the top half slower and deeper. It is an all catch and release water in the quiet setting of Langford Nature Reserve, well known for wild fowl.

Steeple Langford is suitable for one or two Rods.
