Specialist salmon fishery. Nymph, sink & draw technique.

Avon, Old Sarum Fishery

Good

5

Yes

Wading essential

A 7' to 8'6" rod is perfect. This is not a manicured fishery! The river keeping policy is of sensitive, light intervention and although there is a bank path around the fishery, maintenance is only to preserve bankside vegetation and fly life.

Avon, Woodford Valley (Salterton)

Some like to wade the bottom stretch though its not necessary.

Plenty of different waters on this scenic and private fishery.

Dun, Hungerford

250 yd walk

No

Wading permitted only if it is necessary to enter the water to better cover a fish. Exit water at point of entry and do not wade up river.

Small river tucked away near Hungerford. Good head of fish though easily spooked hence subtle river craft needed - keep low by the water, few false casts trying to make each cast count.

Left bank only with trees behind which can make casting more challenging. Very difficult to cast accurately in a downstream wind.

Bottom end of the Itchen quite close to the sea. LFS is taking the trout fishing which is well stocked and has plenty of variety. Both banks are fishable on the majority of the water.

Delightful stretches of river and carrier. Well stocked with fish who can be skittish if you approach too close or loom over the water. Take it slow, study the water and try and spot your fish so you can cast appropriately.

Around four miles of the Test running through the Broadlands Estate just south of Romsey. Renowned for the native brown trout, Atlantic salmon, sea trout and grayling, the private beats on the Estate are much sought after. We have 5 beats from just south of the house down to the M27 above Nursling.

The more open and easier water of the two. Seth the Waterkeeper will be around from time to time to offer advice and encouragement. A short water holding plenty of large fish. All right bank.
