Enjoy a day for two rods on a beautiful private beat on the Test, the legendary river that was the birthplace of fly fishing. This experience includes a gourmet riverside picnic and a one-night stay for two people at a rustic Hampshire inn, plus a delicious dinner (you can even ask for your catch to be cooked!) and a sumptuous breakfast the next morning.

Make your way to the Fullerton or Wherwell beats, both premium trout fishing stretches of the River Test, where you and your fishing buddy will have the bank to yourselves. The river is at its widest here and the majestic water is joined by several tributaries. It is carefully managed by a full-time riverkeeper and holds brown trout and grayling. You'll be left to your own devices, so you can while away the hours doing what you love best in one of the most exclusive and sought-after chalkstreams in the world.
