Chalk stream Fishing

River Nadder

The Nadder is the most substantial of the Avon tributaries, rising at Donhead St Mary and flowing through some of the prettiest countryside in southern England as it makes its way through the peaceful Wiltshire sheep meadows.

During the course of its 22 miles the Nadder grows in size until it flows through the park of Wilton House where a fantastic Palladian Bridge straddles the river. Just below the park, the river joins the Wylye for the last couple of miles before the combined rivers join the Avon near to Salisbury Cathedral Close.

Generally regarded as the finest stretch of the Nadder the Fishing Breaks beats here – seven in all – are part of the Compton Chamberlayne Estate, which winds through lovely, sheep-grazed water meadows.

Each beat is for one or two rods, and is well stocked with brown trout reared on the Estate and rotating daily to offer plenty of variety.
