Welcome to the English chalkstreams

Let 2018 be the year you fish more. Shrug off the cares of everyday life to restore that belief that no day on a river counts against our quota of days on this earth. For fishing, of whatever kind, is that most life affirming of things. Those moments when you are with nature in perfect harmony as the dappled brook soothes even the most fevered brow. This is truly precious time.

The chalkstreams range from the famous rivers Test and Itchen Hampshire across other counties from Dorset in the west to Yorkshire in the north. Every river (we have over fifteen) is very special in its own right and you will find a description, photos, location map, video and prices for each, plus my unique Tranquillity and Difficulty rating.Look out for the beats that have my Exclusive to Fishing Breaks tag, which are only available through my company.

Here at Nether Wallop Mill, in the heart of Hampshire, I host our Private tuition & Courses plus Children and Family days from April to October. Everyone is welcome and with a beautiful thatched cabin overlooking a gin-clear, well stocked trout lake this has to be the most wonderful place to catch your first ever fish.

There are various ways to book: the on-line system shows up-to-the minute availability. Alternatively do give me a call or drop me an email as I am always happy to discuss the options if you are undecided.

Finally if you are browsing the site with Christmas, a birthday, anniversary or special occasion in mind, I’d point you in the direction of our gift vouchers. I have set a standard that few match in terms of breadth of choice, ease of use and a ground-breaking two years in which to use them.

I hope a great fishing trip is about to begin.

Best wishes!
