After the hot, sunny and extremely enjoyable summer season on our chalkstream rivers, we are always excited for the autumn time. The rivers are often at the clearest and the hatches increase through the day time and into the evening.

Mayfly, chalkstream, river test, river anton, river avon,

September and October may seem late in the season but fly hatches often stretch throughout the whole day offering some fantastic dry fly action, even in the rain. The leaves begin to turn offering a fantastic display of mother nature’s beauty, and best of all the fish feast before the colder winter months.
