Cruise Ship Excursions
Southern England has some of the best and most famous trout fishing in the world. This is the place that fly fishing as we know it today was invented by the Victorians in the 1800’s and where Izaak Walton, author of The Compleat Angler lived.
Your experience starts almost as soon as you leave the Southampton port as the 45 minute journey takes you deep into the English countryside through quaint market towns and past sleepy villages where the thatched cottages cluster alongside the crystal clear chalkstream rivers.
All our excursions include transportation from your cruise ship, expert fishing guides, local licences, equipment, food and drink, plus the opportunity to sample some of the local history and beautiful scenery.
Enjoy a wonderful day in the English countryside catching trout.
At Nether Wallop Mill you will be greeted by your fishing guide who will start the day with a brief tour of the mill which is home to a family of otters, still has a working mill wheel and dates back over a thousand years. After that it is time to start fishing. All the equipment and specialist clothing is provided; just dress for a day outdoors.
This day is open to experienced and novice anglers alike. Full instruction is given to those who require it. The lake has brown and rainbow trout that run as large as 8lbs/4k. Generally we release all the fish caught, but we will BBQ one for lunch if you wish. Don’t forget your camera to record the big catch!
