Chalk stream Fishing
The River Lambourn rises in the Berkshire Downs, just above the famous racing village from which it takes its name. It then flows for some 16 miles more or less directly southeast until it joins the River Kennet at Newbury.
The Lambourn had never featured widely in angling literature until the BBC cricket commentator Howard Marshall, published "Reflections on a River" in 1967. The book has established the Lambourn in the chalkstream lexicon in much the same way that Haig Brown’s "My Game Book" or Plunkett Greene’s "Where Bright Waters Meet" did for the Frome and Bourne respectively.
Marshall closes the final chapter of his book with the words, ‘Simple things – so many of them – make up the angler’s true delight. And all of them may be found on the banks of the little River Lambourn.’
This beat is ideal for one Rod or two friends fishing together.
