UPSTREAMDRYFLY announce two chalk stream fly fishing beats available for the 2013 season.
The river Meon
near Droxford (Midlington), Hampshire. Voted as one of Britain's top 5 finest trout streams in Trout and Salmon Magazine [May 2012].
We are proud to offer a beat of nearly 2 miles of pristine double bank fly fishing on the River Meon. Very similar to the upper river Itchen with a good gradient but at a fraction of the price. Following extensive restoration works by the Wild Trout Trust this winter, the beat is in excellent condition and wild trout stocks are very healthy.
The river Dun
(a tributary of the river Test), known as The Blue Pool Beat. The beat is just over 1 km. Another secluded nature spot where the river flows through old woodland. At the top of the beat is the Blue Pool - a spring directly out of the chalk aquifer giving the water a blue appearance.
Please enquire for details and availability these and our other chalk stream fly fishing beats.
|Head river keeper, Nick Richards returns Stuart Davidson's 25 pounder to the Nursling beat today.|
The Testwood and Nursling Fishery is now over 50% up on last year's salmon catches and more on sea trout from the beginning of May.
Today Stuart Davidson landed a stunning 25 pounder from the Little River, Nursling beat and yesterday a silver bar of 17 pounds was taken at Testwood.
We do have limited availability on both salmon beats and for sea trout nights too. Please contact Howard for details.

"It's not as far or as far fetched as the Yemen. There really are salmon and sea trout to be caught within an hour's drive of London", says Charles Rangley-Wilson in his feature in the Diamond Jubilee edition of The Field Magazine (June 2012).
