Welcome to the English chalkstreams
COVID-19. All our fishing for April is now postponed and new bookings are suspended. I am currently working with my river owners to offer you the option to:
- come fishing from 1/May onwards on the original date if government policy allows it. The fishing huts will be out of bounds and observe all the usual social distancing rules.
- postpone until a date later in the season TBA. If the value of the new date is less than the original date a credit will rolled forward to be used later in 2020 or the 2021 season. Likewise if the new date is more expensive the difference will be paid.
- rollover the date to the 2021 season
However, I must stress this policy is agreed strictly on a fishery-by-fishery basis. Those to which this policy apply are listed in the box below and the list will be updated daily as discussions continue.
On a personal note thank you to all of you who have asked about our well-being and been so incredibly supportive. Fishing has always been something of an unsung community; this proves just how strong it is. Keep well and safe.
Summer on the River Frome
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.
