Catch up with news & special offers in my
fortnightly ‘Life of a Chalkstream’
Welcome to the English chalkstreams
August is a glorious month. The banks are flecked with a myriad of wild flowers, the bees drone amongst the margins and vivid blue damsel flies are everywhere. All around the countryside looks sublime. It is the time of year to stay late, the welcome cool of dusk making the flitting bats your companions as a few opportunistic trout feed in the gathering dark.
The chalkstreams range far and wide from the famous River Test in Hampshire across six other counties from Dorset in the west to Yorkshire in the north. Every river (we have over twenty) 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.
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.
Here at Nether Wallop Mill, in the heart of Hampshire, I host our private tuition, courses and family days from April to October. Everyone is welcome and with a beautiful thatched cabin overlooking a gin-clear, well stocked lake with rainbow, brown and blue trout this is the most enchanting spot to catch your first fish.
Finally if you are browsing the site with 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.
