Pike Guided Days – Chalkstream Fly Fishing
The Chalkstreams offer unique sight fishing for pike
Throughout the winter months we offer pike guided days chalkstream fly fishing. On the surface, the chalkstreams often appear a calm and sedate place, but under the surface it is quite a different story. Brown trout and grayling thrive in the swift flows and nutrient rich clear waters, but venture into the deeper parts and there is another fish that lies in weight, the pike.
The Apex Predator of the Clear Chalkstreams
Pike are the apex predator in freshwater, they are masters of stealth and camouflage. They have the ability to remain hidden for long periods of time, before moving with stunning speed and ferocity to take their prey.
Over recent years they have gained a cult-like status amongst some anglers, whilst others still shy away from them. They were for a long time persecuted for attacking trout, but we have since learnt that pike offer an important part of a healthy chalkstream environment. They are now able to flourish alongside brown trout and grayling.
Bait fishing has always been the preferred method for pike, with lure fishing coming a close second. With the growth in dedicated anglers there is now a better understanding on how to target them with fly tackle, with some anglers even tempting fish of over 30 lbs on the fly.
This winter we will be offering guided trips on the middle and lower River Test for pike. These days will be a great way to discover pike fishing or to finesse your current methods.
