Corporate & Group Days

Fishing Breaks offers a wide selection of days for groups and corporate parties.

 

The River Test is the iconic chalkstream, famed the world over for trout fly fishing. A day beside these gin clear waters in the beautiful Hampshire countryside is the perfect antidote to work.

Your day will be hosted by Fishing Breaks founder and author, Simon Cooper. The service on the day will be exemplary, with the team of friendly and expert Guides on hand to look after your guests be they expert or novice, with tackle and flies provided.

Lunch is served on the riverbank. Choose from a menu that features the produce of the Test Valley – smoked trout, watercress soup or even Hampshire water buffalo mozzarella to name just three of the choices. Aperitifs feature River Test Gin and what better than popping the cork on a bottle of award-winning Black Chalk sparkling wine produced from the vines on the Hampshire chalk downs.

There are a variety of options to suit most budgets and requirements.
