Welcome to the English chalkstreams
Keats Ode to Autumn has a special resonance to the chalkstreams; the words “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness ….” came to him whilst walking along the River Itchen on a September morning. The beauty he saw on that 1819 day remains true today, something we can share through this month and into October as our rivers remain open, our guides are out and we continue to run courses, tuition and family days here at Nether Wallop Mill.
The chalkstreams range from the famous rivers Test and Itchen in Hampshire across Berkshire, Dorset and Wiltshire, plus the similar but subtly different limestone rivers of Derbyshire and Gloucestershire.
Every river (we have close to 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 us.
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 crystal clear, well stocked lake with five varieties of trout: blue, brown, golden, rainbow and tiger. 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 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.
